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)

I would like to use my Sigma 600 Mirror lense on Nikon M80 digital camara body lense was used on a Pentax Super A camara before can it fit


Sorry, no. If it fit onto a Pentax camera then the lens has a Pentax mount. The Nikon (I assume you mean the D80 digital camera, or perhaps the N80 film camera) has a Nikon mount. Since the Nikon mount has a deeper flange distance than the Pentax mount, there are no adapters available to allow you to fit a Pentax-mount lens onto a Nikon camera.

Inside the camera is a mirror which reflects the scene up to the viewfinder. It flips out of the way when you press the shutter button. When the mirror flips up, the shutter opens and exposes the sensor. When you look inside, if the mirror is stuck in an up position, you will not see anything in the viewfinder. However, the mirror is super delicate....do not touch its surface or try to force it.

A mark on the reflector mirror


You can remove the lens and clean the mirror very carefully. This will not affect the image quality of the captured photo-- since the lens flips up and the image is transferred directly to the sensor.

My Nikon D90 has started to shoot images with what appears to be hair in lens, Switched lense to Macro and hair is still there It is always in varying shapes, so to speak But is ruining my images It...


If you switch lenses and the hair is still appearing on your pictures, it is quite possible you have an actual hair or thread or something located in the camera body in the way of the sensor. Remove your lens and visually examine the inside of the body for debris. Stay clear of the sensor and the mirror, but you can use tweezers to remove an obvious foreign object. You can also command your mirror to stay up and out of the way (see the camera setup menu "mirror lock up") for closer examination. It's best to use a bulb type squeeze blower to blow out debris from inside the camera. Do an internet search on "rocket air blower" and you'll see what I mean. Blowing air from your mouth can introduce moisture.

I see a double image through my Nikon Travelite 12x24s


Hello Scott

While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.

These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.

You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.

In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Try this...clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Minolta to Nikon --Switching to Digital -- LENSE problems


Mirror lenses have no aperture nor AF, so they mount via a T mount. A $30 item that screws on the end of a mirror lens that fits your camera. A mirror lens has it's physical likes and dislikes against a glass 500mm. A glass 500mm will give a better image if you can stop down to F8 F16. Then you have shutter speeds to consider and those lenses are usually connected to the camera's contacts. So they can be specific to a single body. There are older Tamron lenses that take Adaptall mounts, they are old and hard to find. But they solved the multiple body problems for "auto" program lenses. None had AF, when AF camera around, we were back to individual lenses per body.

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.

Nikon D50 Body issue


Sounds like your mirror is stuck up or partially up. I'd take it in to be repaired to be safe and so you don't have to fiddle around inside it.
