Please take it to a repair shop. They will get the mirror fixed again.

Hello! I have a normal NIKON N65 SLR camera. I am going to buy a digital SLR camara. Is it possible to use my old NIKON lences for my new NIKON digital SLR body? Thanks in advance! Adrian


Yes for the higher end cameras - not for the cheaper ones as they use a lens with a motor inside instead of the one in the camera body (you can use your lenses and focus manually)

Minolta x700 cannot see through the lens. help


Which lens? Is this happening with just one lens, or with every lens you mount on the camera?

If you remove the lens and look through it, can you see light? Perhaps an upside-down view of whatever is on the other side?

If you look into the camera body after removing the lens, do you see a mirror at a 45-degree angle?

Can Nikon F3 lenses be used on a digitial Nikon body?


Yes and no. The lenses will fit with no problem.

On DX cameras (everything except the D700 and the D3 series) the smaller sensor causes the lenses to seem longer. A 50mm lens on a digital body will give you about the same image as a 75mm lens would on a film body.

Older non-CPU lenses do not have the electronics to communicate with a newer camera. On some of these cameras you won't be able to use the camera's light meter.

My shutter mirror keeps closing on my nikon fm2. when i press the button to snap the picture, the shutter mirror should go back to the down position. It closes and stays closed until I have to take the...


Hi jandklandry, Sounds as though the cushion the mirror hits on the up swing is tacky thus holding the mirror up. Maybe you can yourself fix it however, I would suggest sending it to Nikon for a complete CLA (Clean Lube Adjust). You have a nice camera allow Nikon to do it proud.

The camera will not focus in manual or auto.


did you check out the camera with another lens? is the mirror returning fully down to the mirror stops? is the diopter on the finder adjusted properly?
i would not send both the lens and body together, unless there is impact damage.

There is looseness in the back cover when it is closed and there is gooy black stuff on the door where it seems to sit against the camera body


Stick black substance is probably the light seal the camera has along the edge of the door. Over time these foam like seal become stickey and start to fall apart. The same stuff is used as mirror dampening the mirror flips up when you take a picture. I think you can do a search on Google for an instruction to replace these deteriorating seals. I've had plenty of them myself on classic film cameras.

Unable to take picture


I don't know if there is a mirror lock up button on this camera or not. Some have it for slow exposes. Nikon does have a technical phone number or place on their website to contact them. I had a D100 that had the ERR message show up on it, and it cost $400 to repair. But look for the mirror lock button.

Changing lens


Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.

Remove the lens from camera.
Look inside pass the mirror, how is the shutter?
Should be flat with the film with no warp or opened shutters.

Or try this:

Lens out, set camera to M (manual mode).
Shutter set at 1 (One Second).
No flash.
800 ISO
Lnes drive pin (recessed) fully into the body, not S or C.
Fresh batteries.
Set self timer on.
Press shutter button.
Camera should blink and then shutter should be tripped.

This will also check to see if you have enough power for min. of one shot.
