Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

I think I scratched something inportant....PLEASE HELP ASAP!

Hi, I am a college student who just changed my major to Photography and just began taking photography classes this semester. We have just started working with the 35mm camera and I have a Canon AE-1 and I was shooting a role of film and realize that there were some particles and an eyelash somewhere. So, I took the lense off and tried to blow air inside but the particles were on the part that has the circle on it and the brush went across it. Now, I can barely see out of the lense period and I don't have a clue what to do. Did I ruin my camera? Please help me!!! I am a little freaked out! Thank you so much, hdstokes e-mail address is hdstokes2@suddenlink.net

Do not worry. The part that is scratched or has some dirt on it is called fresnel lens ( or the focusing screen ) and scratches to this part will NOT effect quality of your pictures ( i.e. you will not see any of the scratches on your results ) . True it is a hassle to have to look through a dirty viewfinder but just ignore it for now and just take pictures.

I want to study teaching and i dont have money but i want to start next year


Well, depending on your age, your ethnicity, your financial situation you may be eligible for Grant money for College. There are also College loans that you may apply for.
Many of us have started our College career in a Two year Community College and then on to a Four year College. I suggest you actually go to a College which you think you may want to go to, and talk to their Financial Advisor Make an appointment and go. It costs nothing to gain information.
Just a word of advice; make sure that, whatever courses you do take in a Two year College, they transfer to a Four year College as part of the Four year College curriculum for whatever major you decide on. In your case it would be teaching. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!

Will I graduate optometry in 4 years after?


hi
i don think you can finsh it in 4 yrs

An optometrist holds a Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) degree, which takes seven years of study to complete. O.D.s diagnose vision problems, diseases of the eye and related diseases. They are also responsible for prescribing corrective eyeglasses and contact lenses.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Challenging Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Academic Counselings
  • College Catalogs
  • School Of Optometry Catalogs
  • Computers
  • Online Career Search
  1. Take numerous science and biology courses in high school.

  2. Go to a college where you can take three years of pre-optometry courses. Consult your guidance counselor during your junior year about colleges that offer such a program.

  3. Find and visit optometry Web sites with the help of a major search engine like Google or Yahoo. Look for information on optometry schools and their admission requirements.

  4. Take the Optometry Admissions Test during your second or third year in college. The test will measure your academic and scientific knowledge.

  5. Apply for admission to optometry schools accredited by the Council on Optometric Education of the American Optometric Association. Keep in mind that competition is great.

  6. Complete your optometry school's four-year course of study and pass a written and clinical state board exam.

  7. Apply for your state license after receiving your O.D. degree. You should ask your state's Board of Optometry well beforehand about its licensing procedure.

  8. Consider a one-year postgraduate program if you want to become a specialist.
