Can you get a digital back to covert it into digital

No. I had never see somethig like a digital back for a film camera like this.
The digital backs made from companies like LEAF and FACE ONE, had only be made for medium format cameras.

My polaroid pictures are coming out blank?

I assume they are coming out almost completely white. Here are some guesses based on my experience with 4x5 Polaroid film from decades ago. Things may have changed.

First guess: This type of film has small packets of chemicals that are popped open and spread by rollers in the camera. These chemicals develop the film. If the pinch roller's no longer squeeze tightly enough, the film will come out white. Try googling your camera name and rollers to see if others have this problem.

Second guess: Another possibility is the film was not stored properly or expired. Have you tried replacing the film?

Third guess: Not likely, because I expect this camera is fully automatic, but are you able to adjust shutter speed or aperture? The images may be over exposed if shutter speed is slow. Are there mode settings like A, T and M? If so, put the camera into A mode. When you press the button do you hear a fast and immediate click-click, or do you hear a click followed by another click shortly after?

There is something wrong with my Nikon D3000. It turns on but doesn't show anything on the screen and when I look through the lens it's shows a grainy dark film. It can't be the lense because I...

There seems to be two separate issues here. I'm going to assume you have a charged battery pack in the camera.

First, the screen. Turn the camera on. Do you see the menu when you press the MENU button? Does the shooting info show when you press the Info button? Can you see previously taken photos when you press the Playback button? If none of those show up then something is wrong with the screen (or the battery is dead).

Second, the viewfinder. First, make sure the viewfinder in the back is clean. Now turn the camera on and look through the viewfinder. Do you see the eleven focus marks? Do you see the info at the bottom? Now turn the camera off and remove the lens. Don't touch anything inside the camera! Do you see a mirror at a 45-degree angle? Is it clean? Look at the focusing screen above the mirror. Is it clean? Now look through the viewfinder and point the camera out a window. Do you see a more-or-less white blob, or the same grainy dark film?

The auto focus works fine- it will not auto or

Hi I am SAGHA camera repairer from mumbai,I think your sigma 18-125 dc lens is having electronically operated aperture unit in which one Film PCB runs from mount contacts to aperture unit.Due to multifolds of that film inside the barrel the film gets cracked at one fold location So either you have to get that film changed or the whole aperture unit replaced from an expert.give me feedback for this tip Vote me if you found it useful,ALL THE BEST.

Nikonos v with Nikon 15mm f/2.8N UW-Nikkor IC... > for sale

Good lord! That's a NICE underwater system you've got. What type of help are you asking for? Just from your equipment list, if everything is in good condition, you've got at least 1500.00 worth of stuff! A new 15mm sells for $2,240, the camera, new, $750.00, eiklite flash system is up there, the extra close up gear ain't cheap either! And a pelican case--well, if yer gonna go snorkeling or scuba, you're all set! The 28mm can be used for land lubbing or underwater. To properly prepare the camera, the most important thing is to check the condition of the o-ring around the film door. If any doubt, replace it!! The same applies with any other o-ring seal. *Properly* greased, an O-ring in good condition simply looks wet. Use a good quality, pure, silicone grease all over the ring and don't blob it on--It can be purchased just about anywhere. Check the o-rings on all the other equipment--same rule applies. Salt water damage is u-g-l-y. Before opening up the camera after being in salt water, rinse all equipment in fresh water and dry completely. Don't detach any cords or lenses until all are rinsed and dry! (When cameras and salt water come together improperly, think horror movie acid bath results--and you won't be far off) I used 36-picture rolls of film so I wouldn't have to open the cam as much. Heh, in the excitement of photoing fish, yer gonna burn some film.Hope I assisted you!---Rick

Camera repair for 35mm not digital

Hey Kimmie841,
There are plenty of places that repair 35mm film cameras. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out for service, or you could look in your local yellow pages under camera repair and there usually are some listings. Another option is contacting the manufacturer and they usually have a list of authorized service technicians in your area that you could bring it to. I hope this helps!

Cant open camera to get film out

Hey stupid 01,
To open your camera back you need to pull up on the rewind lever knob (on the left side of the camera with the lens pointing away from you), and the camera back should pop open. Before you do this make sure your film has been rewound back into the film canister or you will ruin your images.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
