Question about Vivotek Ip7160 Web Cam

1 Answer

When removing a large lens from a IP7160 the lens mounting ring screwed out of the camera body leaving it atached to the lens thread. Due to the soft alloy this ring is made from all attempts to remove it from the lens screw failed and it had to be cut off. Are these rings available anywhere other than vivotek as I need to fix this problem quickly?

Cambron 500mm

Every camera maker has a slightly different configuration for how the lenses mount. there is a removable ring in the rear of your lens that is interchangable specifically so they can make one lens that fits every camera. The ring is called a T-mount ring. it should be held in place by at least 3 set screws that pass thru the side of the lens and pinch the T-mount between them and hold it in place. Remove whatever is currently mounted in your lense and replace it with a Canon EOS compatible replacement.
Look on eBay or one of the bigger camera websites for an EOS T-mount.

How to reassemble 50 mm pentax slr lens

The problem usually comes about when the focussing ring comes loose. Step 1 remove the 1.front round name ring 2. filter ring. this will expose three screws that hole the focus ring in place. reset the focussing to infinity on your viewfinder then set the ring to the infinity mark and retighten. If the helicoid has come apart then take the mount ring out, aperture ring out, and remove the two focus guides. turn the core out, set the fine thread back until it is almost against the ring directly behind it. make sure that it has at least one and one half turns. then engage the helicoid back. refit the focussing core into the lens and refit the two guides.reassemble the lens and revert to step one to reset the lens.

HOW TO PUT Fotodiox 49mm Filter Thread Macro Reverse Mount Adapter Ring for Sony E-series

The ring threads onto the front of any lens with a 49mm filter thread, just like a filter. The front of the lens then fits onto a camera body, effectively mounting the lens "backwards" or reversed. With most lenses, this allows the lens to focus very close, for close-up or "macro" photography.

How to mount 67mm thread lens to t4i body only canon

One side of the reverse adapter has a 67mm thread, the other side has a lens mount. Mount it to the camera body as if it were a lens. Bear in mind that it's intended to screw onto the front of a lens and then mounted onto a camera to put the lens onto the camera in a "backward" position.

Do they make a converter for cannon len to fit fugi

Depends what you mean.

The Fuji s7000 is a fixed lens bridge camera, so you can't remove the lens and use an adapter and fit other lenses.

All that you can do is to git supplementary telephoto, wide angle and extreme close up (macro) lenses to the filter thread on the end of the lens; if you use what's called a reversing ring you can then (within reason) mount pretty much any SLR lens backwards onto the front of yours. The reversing ring screws into the filter threads of each lens and will be quoted in two sizes: these will be whatever the filter thread diameter is on each lens. By mounting a lens backwards, you effectively end up with an extreme macro lens, but it all depends upon which lens you choose. The reverse mounted lens will just be a dumb bit of glass, there will be no focus or aperture control and no communication of any information back to your s7000.

Hope that I've helped, if so please rate my answer.

Manual Canon 50mm FD lense will not focus!?

In that case the linkage between the movable parts of the lens group and the focussing ring has failed.

What follows applies to most lenses; I have a Canon 50mm FD to hand but as it works perfectly I've not needed to dismantle it so far but have repaired many others.

When you turn the focus ring there are usually two pegs which engage into helical slots cut into the focussing ring, these are hidden within the lens and you won't see them unless the lens is dismantled. The pegs are usually rounded to make the passage along the helical slot even smoother and each one is fixed to the inner lens barrel by a screw. On older lenses, the grease inside can dry out a bit, especially if the lens remains unused, when this happens the pegs may either shear off or simply become unscrewed and drop off. The gummy grease may hold them so you won't always hear a rattling part inside.

To fix it, you carefully dismantle the lens to the minimum extent you can get away with. You'll need good light, patience and a set of good quality crosshead precision screwdrivers. Normally you start with the screws on the mounting flange and watch out for small springs and detent balls which tend to escape to freedom never to be seen again. Some of the screws are usually hidden beneath the rubber grip on the focussing ring, and you remove this to check by carefully lifting an edge and then rolling it back over itself. It may need re-gluing afterwards. Clean out dried grease as you go and apply a small amount of thick grease to replace it on reassembly: less is far better than too much! Some of the screws may need thread lock applied to them when they go back in, but you're better off leaving this as your first time lens repair usually has to come apart again due to an error in reassembly.

Be prepared to ruin this lens as it's your first lens repair. The good news is that auction websites have plenty of other cheaply and in full working order, just make sure to ask if the iris (aperture) works smoothly and snappily and that the lens does not have the dreaded lens fungus on the glass elements (a patchy white haze). You can also usually get these lenses for free on Yahoo FreeCycle and a camera body and other goodies normally come as part of the offer. FreeCycle is how I've collected various Nikons, Canons and Pentax SLRs and lenses over the last year to add to my existing Olympus gear.

I hope that I've helped you, if so please return the favour by rating my answer.

Nikon D40 I bought a set of macro lenses that said they were compatible for the d40 but i cannot figure out how to fit them. They are 52mm lenses - should i have bought an adaptor or something? where...

Macro lenses are mounted to your camera body in place of the lens you currently have mounted on the camera. If you bought the camera with the lens already mounted you may not have realized that the camera and lens are 2 separate objects. To remove your lens see page 8 in your user manual for instructions and an illustration. If you don't have your user manual handy, you can download a PDF file from NikonUSA Here.

If what you bought are macro rings, they go on the camera, then your regular lens mounts onto the ring. You can use one or more of the rings between the lens and camera to produce different macro settings.

If what you bought are macro filters, they screw on to the front of your lens. If you have a UV filter on your lens you need to remove that before you attach another filter.

I have a Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L USM Lens

Here is a link to many Canon products in PDF form: Canon Parts Lists

Unfortunately, the only 300mm 2.8 lens listed is the IS version

The procedure is not that complicated, but you need to pay attention to the connections on the circuit board. The mount is removed, and you need to remove the small screws that hold the connector board to the mount ring first.

I cannot do live chat due to I use a Mac, but I will monitor the thread if you have questions,

Attaching non-Olympus lenses

The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly. The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens. I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread." Which maybe isn't clear enough. So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
