Digital camera setting for Quantary eBox Studio lighting?

I have a Kodak digital camera and a Quantaray eBox Studio. For the life of me, I can't figure out which light source to set in my camera...or even where to set it. In P mode, I can go to White Balance and choose Auto, Daylight, Tungsten, Fluorescenty, or Open Shade...but whatever I've done with the camera, I can't seem to get true subject color.

Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the advice. But I just did a session with the camera on the P setting and White Balance set to tungsten, using the eBox lamps for a light source, and the colour came out true. Far crisper focus, too.



    Thanks, again.

Not all light sources are absolutely accurate unless you are in profrofessonal studio conditions, and the lighting has been set up using colour and intensity references with proper metering.

I would suggest to use the camera in the auto mode for the colour ballance.

If the camera colour ballance is unacceptable when compared to another camera under the same conditions, then the camera obviously needs to be serviced.

Quantary 70-300 1:4-5.6 LG, is it compatible with digital canon camera?


Quantary makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens for a Minolta, for example, will not fit onto a Canon. Assuming you get the lens with a Canon EF mount, then yes, it is compatible with a Canon digital SLR.

I have a Quantary zoom lens 28-90mm "for Minolta AF". It fits my Sony alpha350 camera, but the camera does not recognize it - says there is no lens. What's up?


Fitting is not always the solution. It is the software which recognises the hardware attachements. Either upgrade your camera software or use only the manufacturer recommended add ons. aqeelhafeez@hotmail.com

Quantary 70-300mm F4-5.6 Macro lens. Is this lens compatible with any digital cameras?


From what i've read it might be a EOS Canon EF compatible lens. I really need to see the bottom of the lens (the part that connects to the camera) to be able to say anything more.

I have the same problem. So far I've contacted Sigma (I believe this is the company that manufacturers the Quantaray lens for Ritz) and they requested I send them a photo of the lens. I just googled sigma lens to find sigma support. I will update you all with any response I may get.

Quantaray 28-200mm Aspherical IF


Usually.
Quantary Lenses are made by either Sigma or Tamron That lens was usualy made buy sigma. the way to tell is to take it to a camera store that sells 28-200 lenses and hold your lens next to the sigma or tamron. They will look the same just with a different name. one of the main difference's between the store brand quantaray and sigma is that alot of time the metal bearings used in the name brand are replace with plastic ones for the quantaray. I tell you that just so you know why the sigma lenses cost more.

you can also find broken ones on online auction sites and use them for parts.


hope you get it working,
Caleb

Quantary Tech-10 75-300mm use with Canon Rebel XTi


Hi all
On most lenses the way to test if your old lens works on a cannon digital to set the camera to AV then set the iris to the small setting ie F16/F22 then use the stopdown button.
Things that might happen
1 The lens will close down OK
2 The error 99 will show,will need are rechip if avaliable
3 Nothing happens, will need a rechip

Q.Why will it work inside but not outside.
A. Inside the camera needs light so the iris is full open, outside the lens needs to close down and if not compatible it is unable to close down. will need a rechip

Quantary 100-300mm telephoto lense


I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can do. Appararently, the quantaray, being an older lens, wasn't made to work with this latest era of cameras. Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital cameras and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera Resource page (www.dcresource.com)

Canon error codes


I have a 100-300mm Quantaray lense and have the exact same issue. I spoke to Canon about this and they suggested cleaning the contacts. That helps for 1 picture. You would have to remove the lense and rub the contacts between each picture. Not a good plan. They suggested the Quantaray may have a fix or repair for the lense and to contact them. However they have no listed 800 number nor any website. only other suggestion is to contact a camera shop and see if they can service the lense. Only other option is to replace it.
