SOURCE: No picture taken when shutter release is pressed

if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.

SOURCE: my X700's shutter isn't working when i press the shutter release

Remove bottom cover and locate the 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace . The capacitors that go into these models start leaking after 10 years.

SOURCE: My camera doesn't work when I press the shutter release

I think the timing of the shutter winding gears has slipped a tooth or two. look at the picture in this image:

http://www.twid.de/x700/pic03.jpg

Near the motor drive coupler at the bottom you will see a blue and a white gear. Look closely at the blue gear and you will see a line on the top of it. That line needs to be pointed at the center of the white gear when the camera has been released and ready to be advanced again.

If you wish to proceed, I will tell you how to re-time the gears.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

Film not releasing on lomo instant. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? this happened out of the box.


When you say not releasing, do you mean you are unable to rewind the film ? Have you pressed the rewind button ?

I have a Nikon Coolpix P500. I have to depress the shutter release button several time to get it to snap a picture. The indicator light shows a fully charged battery.


Did you change (unnoticed perhaps) anything to the settings?
Be aware your camera needs a little time to focus. And when conditions are bad, like little contrast in the subject or bad light conditions, the camera needs more time to focus.
Please try to shoot in automatic mode. Then when you have a subject press the shutter release button half way. Look if you framed correct and then press fully. This way every time the camera should click.

How do I get my lomography fisheye to advance?


Turn the thumb wheel located behind the shutter release button until it stops at the next frame.

Note that on your model the MX button (Multiple eXposure) to the left of the thumb wheel often gets stuck and prevents the film from advancing. The button should be firmly to the right when not in use. If the MX system is broken there's nothing you can do as the parts cannot be repaired or replaced. All LOMO and Holga models are extremely cheaply made plastic "toy"cameras and are not designed to last. Most have a maximum design lifespan of ten to twelve rolls of film, the FishEye model is designed to last just half that. It's only in Western countries that these models sell for ridiculously high prices, as an example my Lomo FishEye cost me 48 Hong Kong Dollars (that's just under GBP£4 or just over US$6). Back home in the UK they sell for ten times more.

The above explanation is not meant to be disparaging about your camera, but is just to illustrate that these cameras are really built from the start as disposable cameras which have the added bonus of being reusable a few times so cannot usually be repaired when broken.

In my holga 120 cfn the flash doesn't go off when i press the shutter. the batteries seem fine and the orange light turns on, but when i press the shutter nothing happens. a couple of times it has worked,...


The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.

If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.

In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.

Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!

Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...


If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Variations in Color under Fluorescent Lighting


When taking pictures of subjects that are illuminated with fluorescent light using a digital camera it is possible that variations in white balance from image to image can occur. As a result, the overall color cast of the photograph can change depending on the exact instant that the shutter is released even thought the lighting conditions are constant. The reason for this phenomenon is that the color temperature of the light source changes during the power cycle. For normal AC lighting systems, the power goes from full to zero 100 times per second according to the variation in voltage. Incandescent lighting has a high thermal capacity (the filament remains hot) so the temperature and color remain relatively constant. Fluorescent lighting however uses a different method of illumination and the color will change from instant to instant. Our eyes do not detect this change as it happens too fast for us to recognize. However, the camera is able to capture an instant in time that the eye cannot, and when a picture is taken with a fast shutter speed these variations become noticeable. The phenomenon therefore occurs when the shutter speed is comparatively faster than the frequency of the AC power source to the light.
