Question about Olympus IS200 SLR ZOOM SINGLE REFLEX CAMERA 35mm Film Camera

3 Answers

What battery and where does it go for 35mm single lens reflex slr

I don't know what kind of battery I need for the film camera or if I even need one at all. I was told I needed one, but I can't find a place were the battery would go. It is a pretty old camera and I have tried taking pictures with it and it works but I don't know if the pictures are going to come out right without the battery. Please let me know if you know what kind I need and where it goes if I even need one. Thank you.

Your camera uses 2 x CR123 batteries; they fit in a chamber on the underside of the camera beneath the right hand grip.

The camera is an autofocus fixed lens SLR and batteries are essential.

You can view a .pdf manual at the web address below: it's for an IS-20dlx but it's the same camera as the IS-200. Your model had different names depending upon where in the world it was sold. I recommend that you save the manual to your pc as there's no guarantee how long these resources will remain online for.

    Correction to my answer.

    The IS-20 dlx and is-200 are the same camera except for one feature: the is-200 lacks the panoramic mode of the is-20dlx.

Not personally familiar with that camera model, but most older SLRs did require a battery. Those usually can be located on the bottom of the camera where there is what looks like a slot for a large screwdriver. It is actually to be unscrewed using a coin -- nickel/dime/quarter and will unscrew revealing a rather deep space (for those used to today's digital batteries). The battery required might not be too easy to find, but a large camera store might be able to locate it in their supplier's catalog if they could see your camera (or maybe even from the model number).

This takes a 3V Lithium cylindrical battery type CR123A, DL123A from any manufacturer. It goes in at the bottom of the camera under the shutter release (right hand side) as you look from the rear of the camera.

The camera is stuck in the open position but will not operate. The battery is new. it shows a charge, but the shutter will not go, nor will the film advance.


Are you using the lens that came with the camera? If not do you have an original Olympus lens you can put on it and try? Some of the adapters/aftermarket lenses on the market are/were considerably less than awesome, some would even partially obstruct the mirror's movement. Others just had shotty firmware or components and would require more voltage to operate then the body could produce. If its not lens related, pull the battery and check the contacts in the door and at the bottom of the battery bay and make sure they aren't a)twisted/damaged, or b) too far depressed for the battery to make solid contact. After so many battery changes the contacts can get pressed too far down for the contacts to connect. Fixing it can be a bear and honestly, knowing if they are too far depressed can be just about as difficult. Not sure if this will help but its a place to start. Best of luck!

What is the difference in Point & Shoot, SLR and DSLR, in digital cameras?


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-lens_reflex_camera
See the above for complete details but a SLR is a film-based camera (35mm) single-lens-reflex. Going to digital cameras which do not use film but have digital chips to capture the image, a point-and-shoot camera is smaller and does not have interchangeable lens and is for the amatuer while the D-SLR is more for high-end images and has lenses which you can interchange along with more features and costs more.

SLR stands for "Single Lense Reflex", and yours is not reflexing, the shutter is stuck. I would say the guy that owned it before you did not know it, because to reset it manualy you have to remove the film and or the lense. To fix it you have to send the camera in for a good cleaning.

I am confused. Is the N 75 an SLR or 35 mm. My daughter needs a 35 mm for a photography course. She has an N 75.


Both. The Nikon N75 is a 35mm SLR camera. 35mm refers to the size of the film the camera uses. SLR (single-lens-reflex) refers to the design of the camera, which uses the same lens for both viewing and photographing, the film sees the same image you see in the viewfinder.

There are other 35mm cameras that are not SLRs. Likewise, there are SLRs that use other sizes of film.

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.
