FG's are pretty tough old cameras. You can use a cloth and a lenspen brush, but be very careful of the shutter curtain...its delicate and if you damage it you might as well get another FG ($30 or so on Ebay). My first Nikon was an FG-20...still works like new.

Depending on how new your Minolta SLR film camera was, the lens may or may not work on a Minolta Digital SLR. In many cases, a lens with the correct mount (in this case, a Minolta mount) can be used on the same brand of camera in the digital format.

One thing you should know is that DSLR sensors are, generally speaking, smaller than the size of a 35mm film negative. Long story short, that means that your lens will have a magnification factor on the DSLR. Usually, it is in the range of 150%, so a 70-300 lens from a film camera would cover 105 to 450 on a Digital SLR.

To be sure about the mount, you'll need to seek advice specific to Minoltas -- probably best to take your lens to a local camera shop and see for sure if it fits and what features will work (aperature, auto-focus, etc) and which won't work on the DSLR.

What is the question?

I'm going to assume that you're getting a featureless white blob for the moon, and you want to know how to fix it.

Switch to manual exposure mode. The camera's meter is trying to make the entire scene a midrange. Since the scene is dominated by a black sky, it will overexpose in an attempt to make the sky come out gray, resulting in the full moon washing out completely.

Think about what you're photographing. It's a big rock under a midday sun, isn't it? The proper exposure for that is the "Sunny-Sixteen-Rule." That simply means that the proper exposure is f/16 at a shutter speed of 1/ISO. So, for ISO 200, use an exposure of f/16 at 1/200 seconds, or an equivalent (such as f/11 at 1/400 seconds, etc.)

If you're using a digital camera, you can check the exposure and the histogram immediately and adjust if necessary. If you're shooting film, bracket a couple of stops in each direction.

Most lenses I see on the net are for Minolta, but perhaps you can buy an adapter ring? Be aware that most of the time, when you buy a lens not from the same brand, you most of the time have to focus manually. If you want to use the lens for macro photography, that won't be a great problem i guess.

The lens will work with any Nikon film SLR, including the FG-20. However, the FG-20 is not an autofocus camera. Whether the lens is capable of autofocusing or not, you'll still have to focus manually. With a newer autofocus camera, such as the N75 and N80, the lens will autofocus.

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.

How do I connect an older film lense to a Canon Rebel XS Digital body?


Check the mountin type of the old lens, I use nikon myself and can use my old 50mm lens from a FG on my D70- as they have the same bayonet mounting. Though doing this the camera will only take a shot when it is set to manual- and I'm unable to use the D70's light meter.
If your looking to fix a really old screw in lens to your rebel- i imagine you will have hunt around for an adaptor of some sort.
Seein as thats something I have never done had a root around some resources i use- maybe this will help you a bit more, be warned its fairly dense reading material.

Another thing using a non-digital lens on a digital body can cause problems- something to do with the lens being designed to put a image onto a 35mm shot of film and not a little digital sensor- You'll probably find that what you see in the viewfinder does not appear in the final image. Fairly sure there are conversion tables for the size of lens and what it shoots when used on a digi- body. For example a 50mm lens will be giving a image area equivelant to using a 85mm lens (thats off the top o my head), I'm fairly sure this varies from camera but that info is fairly easy to find.

Hi, I've recently uncovered my dad's old camera a Nikon FG, unfortunatly none of the lenses I have are Nikon and will not work with the camera. Is there a Lens converter for the Nikon FG that will allow me...


Unfortunately it's not possible. Along with the Olympus OM system, Nikon had very deep camera bodies so you cannot get adapters which will allow infinity focussing. As a result, very few adapters were ever made and those which exist only allow the lens to be used for close-up photography. Even when a converter is available it does not usually permit automatic lens operation nor does it allow the communication of aperture settings to the camera body.

You will have to obtain Nikon F-Mount lenses if you wish to use your FG. They don't have to be expensive: I've acquired a fair collection of both lenses and bodies in the last two years for the princely sum of zilch just by looking on my local FreeCycle/Freegle groups.

Online auction sites have plenty of them, but as long as you're not after the more unusual and higher quality lenses which attract collectors prices can be quite low. If the lenses are third party ones from the likes of Sunagor, Hoya, Bell & Howell, Miranda and a few others then they're usually perfectly good but were budget brands and usually are near worthless. Other third party brands such as Tamron, Tokina, Vivitar, Sigma were regarded as much better quality (often unjustifiably) and so command higher prices but the "bread and butter" lenses still tend to be relatively cheap.

Conversely, Canon 35mm SLR bodies were the thinnest ones around and so could accept adapters to take virtually all other 35mm SLR lenses. A few were even sophisticated enough to allow automatic operation and lens to body communication of the aperture setting but they were very scarce and expensive. I've also acquired a lot of Canon SLRs and lenses from FreeCycle/Freegle, so again there is no need to spend anything other than shipping costs and to invest in a few batteries and occasional spare parts/foam renovation kits.

I hope that my answer has not burst your bubble, instead I hope that it's given you new possibilities. All I ask in return is that you rate my answer.
