Question about Pentax Cameras

35mm Pantex Camera model # ME

My aunt just gave me her 35mm Pantex Camera, she got it back in 1976, I have always wanted a camera like the one she just gave me, and now I have one. Now she has lots of extra stuff with it, now my question is, she game me a macro zoom lens, which was never used, but what does it mean when it says 150-750mm, I know that mm means milameter. but what does 150-750 mean? I'm going to take some photography courses at my local college...

That's the focal length of the lens. If there're two numbers, then the lens is either a zoom or a "vari-focal" lens, meaning the lens can change focal length from one end to the other. In this case, the lens can change its focal length from 150mm to 750mm, either by turning a ring or pushing/pulling a ring.

BTW I wasn't aware Pentax had a zoom that long. Are you sure it's not 75-150?

I have an old Pentax ASAHI 35mm SP camera. It reads SPOTMATIC on the front. I can't see through the view finder. Any suggestions?


Remove the lens and look into the throat of the camera. The mirror should be resting at a 45 degree angle, but if it's fully or partially stuck upwards then the mirror has locked up.

There were a number of Spotmatic models made between 1964 and 1976, all were fully manual and mechanically operated so the battery was used only to power the light meter. This is important, as on later models the battery also powered the shutter and a flat battery would cause mirror lock up. On your model (either an SP500 or an SP1000), the lock up is either due to an internal breakage or simply due to dried out lubricants which may have been in there for around 40 years now. Fixing your camera requires professional attention; if you're lucky then the camera just needs a CLA service (Clean Lubricate Adjust), new light seals and possibly a battery recalibration (original mercury batteries are no longer available, modern "equivalents" have a different voltage). If this is done your camera can give many more years of service, but the costs will far outweigh the value of the camera. Millions of Spotmatics were made, and the only ones of value to collectors must be immaculate and fully complete and functional. If your camera needs spare parts then they simply aren't available except by cannibalising parts from others. Given that there are plenty of more recent, fully functional 35mm SLR camera outfits available for free on FreeCycle and Freegle you really need to appraise whether to sell your near-worthless camera for spares or to make an investment in repairing it. One benefit of your model is that it accepts the older M42 screw mount lenses and there are millions of them going for between zilch and peanuts.

Don't know how to open door latch on nikon 35mm SLR camera


You haven't stated which model you have, but generally most SLR's open by pulling upwards on the film rewind crank (the knob on the left side of the top-plate as viewed from behind). If this doesn't work then add the exact model as a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you specific instructions for your model.

You didn't state whatbrand of camera you have. Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Minolta all make digital cameras that take their old lenses. In the case of Minolta, Sony took over the production. The only things that may not work are the old flashes. The new digital cameras may need upgraded models of the flashes. Never use an old flash on a newer digital model without checking if it could damage the camera. You need not buy a 12 mega pixel to print 4X6 prints. Their older and less expensive models will work just fine.

Fuji 35mm Camera (Model DL-400)


Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.
