Question about Sakar DIGITAL CONCEPTS FK49CL Camera Lens Filter Kit

1 Answer

Lens filters I am new at this. I was studying the different lenses and lens filters and combinations that I bought for my canon video camera and now two of the filters are stuck together. The CPL and a FLD. They screwed together easily but I can't get them apart. The CPL has the moving portion and that makes it difficult to get a good grip when trying to unscrew them. I'm pretty gentle with this stuff and in no way forced the threads when I first put them together. Can I just run them under hot water or something as normal as that? Thanks. Les Owen 703 447-0590

Re: Lens filters

Lee, a little rubbing alcohol dabbed around the seam between the filters should loosen the threads, Make a full circle and while they are damp, tap the filters lightly a couple of times and try to separate them

Does this lens have a t-mount?

If someone is selling this "old" lens, you should ask him (her) what kind of mount it has. These lenses are made for different brands. Most of the time you also can buy an adapter to fit it on your camera. No problem most adapters don't give trough the AF info, because this lens is an manual focus lens. More interesting is to know if your camera can work with manual lenses. Because most of the time you also have to set everything by hand. Like aperture shutter time and so on. So check the manual if it can, to avoid disappointment after you bought this thing. Also read what others think about this lens.

Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DL Aspherical IF Hyperzoom Autofocus Lens for canon slr compatible with Canon t3i dslr

Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

I recently bought myself a very good CanonESO 50D. Canon DS 126211 serial number 0620301416 Since I only bought the camera, I needed to get Canon compatible lenses and was looking for a 70-300mm. I bo

Almost all early Quantaray lenses (and Sigma lenses, Sigma made Quantaray) in the Canon EOS mount will show error messages on Canon digital cameras (but still work fine on older EOS film cameras). usually err99 but err01 also. There is no DIY fix and Sigma ran out of update parts years ago. Current production lenses and Canon made lenses will not have this problem. This lens would only work for someone shooting EOS film cameras with no intention of "upgrading" their system to digital Canon cameras in the future.

Hi, I bought a CANON FD - 28 mm f 2.8 WIDE ANGLE LENS for my OH's eos 400D, he says it doesnt fit, its too small. Is there an adapter or anything or should I just look for the right one? Many thanks

Canon FD lenses date back to before the mid 1980's. They use a totally different mounting system to the later EOS mount which was a redesign to suit the needs of auto-focussing.

Unfortunately they are chalk and cheese: you cannot realistically fit an FD lens to an EOS camera.

Your fix is to sell the lens and to buy one with an EOS mount.

Sigma 70-210mm f/4-5.6 UC II compatible with Canon 10D and Nikon D7000?

It depends on the lens mount. Sigma makes varieties of their lenses for different camera mounts. A lens with a Canon mount will be compatible with any current Canon camera. A lens with a Nikon mount will be compatible with a Nikon camera. Any one lens can fit one but not the other.

I have a Canon Power shot S3 . Can I use a Sigma AF-Mf zoom lens 100-300mm to it. If Yes, what type adapter to use.? I also have a 35-80mm canon lens. can this be used ? Thanks.

Your camera is a fixed lens compact model. You cannot fit other lenses to it unless they are specifically designed as supplementary lenses which screw onto the existing lens filter thread.

There are no adaptors you can safely use either, the only ones would be lens reversing rings which are used to mount lenses backwards for ultra close-up macrophotography, but the weight of the lenses you propose on the end of your existing lens would break your camera.

If you wish to use interchangeable lenses then you need to obtain an SLR or an interchangeable lens rangefinder camera.

Why does the camera say error 99 when i put lense on? camera works fine with other lense. we have a cannon 30d.

The Quantaray lens is not compatible electronic wise with your Canon. It is indeed made to fit Canon, but the lens is a bit outdated compared to the relatively new Canon.

Quantaray lenses were sold by Ritz Camera (also Wolf Camera). You would want to take it in to the and see if it can be sent out and re-chiped, which will allow it to work with the newer Canon cameras.

Not all lenses can be re-chiped. You may just have to purchase a new lens.

It's probable that although it's designated Macro, the lens actually only gets in fairly close. I recommend you buy a closeup filter which is a simple lens you screw on the front of your lens. You can different strengths for getting in closer. Otherwise treat yourself to a set of extension tubes which do the same thing but more effectively.
I hope that helps

How do you remove the lense? Bought new lense but didn't come with instructions on how to remove the old one.

Switch off your camera before changing or removing lenses to avoid dust being attracted to the sensor
If you camera is a Canon Eos Digital Single Lens Reflex, the lens fits onto the body by being inserted into the 'hole' in the front of the body. To disengage the lens, press the button found at 4 o'clock on the body looking at it from the front and right way up. At the same time twist the lens anticlockwise and the body and lens will separate.
To mount a lens, line up either the red dots on the lens and body or the white rectangle, insert the lens into the recess and twist clockwise until you feel and hear it click home I hope this helps

Sigma 70-300mm lens not fitting Canon EOS 350D

Are you sure you bought a lens with Canon AF mount? To me it sounds like you got one with a mount for a different camera.
Does the mount on the lens look like this?

If it doesn't, you got the wrong version of the lens. If it does look like the mount in the picture, your just mounting it incorrectly.
If you hold the camera with the lens mount facing you, the red marker on the lens should be in the 12 o'clock position, lining up with the red marker on the lens mount on the camera. The turn the lens clock wise, about an 8'th of a full turn, and the lens should click into place.
I hope this help you!
