Re: out of focus
Hey Paul FB, One reason this could be happening is if the film pressure plate is set incorrectly. If you are using 120 film you should of course have it set to 120, and if you’re using 220 film you should have it set to 220. If you have the pressure plate set correctly the plate might be broken, and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If your subject is in the middle of the frame and the edges of your images are either background or foreground you might just have the aperture set to a large aperture resulting in a shallow depth of field. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

Have a look at this page for discussion about this adapter. Depending on the lens you're using it with - the DOF can be extremely shallow and make focusing difficult. If you're in Auto Focus mode - try switching to manual and see if you can get better results.
The short answer is yes, in fact the "Red One" does just that. Now where to get these adapters is another story in itself as most are custom made to communicate with the camera. Adapters to mount "Medium Format Lenses" have been around since shortly after Canon introduced the EOS camera, with better then expected results. The only one the was and still is a huge let down is going from Canons own manual focus lens to the auto focus, you can find them cheap but you loose. I've personally used on a Canon EOS system Medium format Prime lenses from Hasselblad, Pentax and Mamiya. If you go into e-Bay and do a search for lens adapters you'll find a huge assortment. Cheers have fun with it
Step A. Set the floating element ring to its' infinity position (if you are using extension tubes, this will vary and you must set according to the tubes). Step B. Focus the camera on your subject. Step C. Look at the bellows scale on the camera body (it will generally range from 0-40) Important: Don't read the scale akin to the lens you are using. This will make perfect sense, when you examine the bellows. Mentally record this number. Step D. Adjust the floating element ring to the recorded number. Step E. Leave the ring on this new setting and re-focus the camera on your subject. Step F. Make sure the dark slide is removed and capture your photograph. :) - That's it mate. Not so foreboding, when you
It is because the lense is only an AF lense. The d40x doesn't have an on-body auto focus motor so that needs to be on the lense. I have a d60 and have the same problems. You can use the manual focus on the AF lenses; however, to use auto focus, you need to buy an AF-S lense. It's disappointing I know, but that's the price we must pay for saving on our body lol
Set either the camera or lens (or both) to manual focus. Most Nikon cameras have the focus selector switch on the front, under the lens release button.
Look through the viewfinder and turn the focus ring until the image (or at least the subject) appears sharp. A green light will light up when the camera thinks the subject under the currently selected focus sensor is sharp.
Hey redbarnz, If the lens won't focus to infinity then there is probably something physically wrong with the lens. With the dominance of digital equipment you can find fantastic deals on manual focus 35 mm lenses. I would look at Canon manual focus lenses rather than sticking with vivitar. I hope this helps!
