Is there a vivitar/minolta lens adapter for nikon body?


Hi,

Yes - there are such adapters.

Most of the time however, you lose one or more functions like you do when using extension tubes. These can be metering, auto focus, aperture control on the camera body (must be done on the lens barrel instead), etc.

If you have nice Minolta / Vivitar glass, it would probably worth learning to use the camera in a manual mode with these inexpensive adapters.

Good luck!

Getting Better Pictures From Your Nikon D90


I'm a professional PGA Photographer out here on the West Coast. I've been photographing for over 40 years. A few years ago, I bought a Nikon D90, after over 50,000 photos, I've came up with the conclusion that Manual Focus and Manual Shooting is the best. Program, A, S, Landscape, are all good, but, they are not consistence all the time. The same with Auto Focus, I can not tell you how many times I'd line up a photo of a Pro Golfer and my Auto Focus moves in and out of focus, and I miss the shot. So, now I use the Auto Focus to start and as soon as it's sharp, I reach over and turn my lever back to Manual for the shot and any refinement focus as well. Manual exposure is needed as well, as the Program modes will not be consistence from shot to shot. I meter the subject, take a test shot and change my setting manually. That way the exposure is the same. Hope this helps

Does anyone knows how a Vivitar 75-260mm lens will works on nikon d3000?


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens in question has a Nikon mount then it will fit perfectly well on a D3000. If the lens has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not fit at all.The lens is a manual focus lens, so autofocus will not work. You'll have to focus by yourself.The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You will have to shoot in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter.

How do I get a nikon d80 to use a manual lens


If you mean a manual-focus lens, just focus the lens using the focus ring on it.

If you mean a non-electronic lens, then you need to set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Control the shutter speed by turning the command dial. Control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You will get no metering assistance from the camera: you can use another light meter (this includes using a different lens on your camera just to get an exposure reading) or just take pictures and look at the results on the LCD.

I cant get corect skin colour tone in auto white balance.i got some photographs and i see exif data of that photos in photoshop.at the exposure mode it showing manual exposure but at the scene cature type...


You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

My nikon D 90 whit an old lince 28-105 will not auto focks an offen not take pictuers. WHY not???? must i go too the shop wher i bought it or am i douing somthing wrong??? i am from Denmark and my englich...


Hi Annette,

The Nikon D90 will take pictures with many older lenses, however there are some problems with using these lenses. Most of the time, they will not auto focus and many depending on type lens may not work in any mode other than "M" (manual). No P, A, S, AUTO or any of the "Scene" modes.

Set to "M" (manual)

You will have to set the exposure values (aperture & exposure time) and focus manually. Ken Rockwell has compiled a list of lenses that may help you learn more about using older lenses with your D90.

Please rate this reply if you found it helpful - good luck!

The delay is for focusing and exposure metering. You can speed things up by focusing and setting the exposure manually.

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus


Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

Nikon D300 When I depress the shutter half way or fully on my D300 the frame counter reads r27 and the lens (any previously compatible Nikkor lens) will not auto focus. The camera is not set in burst mode...


Only reason the lens will not auto focus when you depress the shutter half way is due to either lens AF switch is set to Manual OR camera body's focus system is on M. There is 3 way toggle switch below the synch port around the lens mount. It should be set to C or S in order for auto focus to work. If all the settings are correct and even "AF-ON", next to rear dial doesn't activate auto focus then the issue maybe in the setting or the body itself. As for the buffer reading r27, I think mine displays r## regardless of burst/continuous mode.
