Hey Kimmie841,
There are plenty of places that repair 35mm film cameras. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out for service, or you could look in your local yellow pages under camera repair and there usually are some listings. Another option is contacting the manufacturer and they usually have a list of authorized service technicians in your area that you could bring it to. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

When I insert the film, it won't catch, therefore I keep winding until the roll is done (also, the shutter release button won't depress). What does this mean? Is there a way to fix it?


When you say 'vintage', are we talking 35mm or roll film ? If 35mm, looks as if the interlock between shutter release and wind-on spool needs adjusting, but no idea if this is possible.

Does the nikon nikkor af 70-210mm telephoto lens fit on a nikon d3000?


Yes. The smaller sensor of the D3000 will make it the equivalent of about a 105-315mm lens on a 35mm film or full-frame digital camera. Also, the autofocus will not work with the D3000.

I have a 35mm film Nikon camera with Quantaray NF AF Lenses. I'd like to find an affordable digital camera that I can still use these lenses, any suggestions ?


Those lenses will fit on every Nikon digital SLR. However, the autofocus will only work on cameras with an autofocus motor, the the AF will not work on the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. Note that this is just the focusing: if you're willing to focus manually then those lenses will work perfectly well on those cameras.

Due to the smaller image sensor of most digital cameras, the lenses will act as if they were about 1.5 times longer. Thus a 50mm lens on a digital camera will give about the same field of view as a 75mm lens would on a film camera. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except for the D3 family and the D700, which behave in this respect like a 35mm film camera.

You have to decide what's affordable for you, balancing such factors as weight, ease-of-use, and of course cost.

Hi. Is the Nikon AF Nikkor 20-35mm 1:2.8D made for Nikon's digital cameras? Is it compatible with their whole line or just some? Thanks


No. The lens will work with every Nikon film or digital SLR made in the past three decades or so, though of course the autofocus won't work on older cameras that don't support AF.

My husband has a Nikon F65 NON-digital camera for which he has an APO sigma 170-500mm lens. I am thinking of purchasing a digital camera for him (Nikon D50). Will this sigma lens be compatible? Are lenses...


Yes, the lens will be compatible with the D50.

All lenses are optical: light comes in one end and goes out the other. There's no digital/non-digital about it.

What there is about lenses is the size of the image circle. Lenses cover a certain area. A lens that covers a 35mm film frame, such as the Sigma under discussion, will also cover a smaller area, such as the sensor on a D50. It's possible to design lenses with a smaller image circle. These smaller, lighter lenses are sometimes called "digital," because they are intended to only cover the typically smaller digital sensor. Using such a lens on a full-frame or film camera will produce dark corners. This is NOT an issue in your case.

What camara can i use with a quantaray 100-300 af lens


You can use a Quantaray lens that fits on a Canon EOS film camera body on any Canon EOS camera body - film or digital. Your choice of EOS camera depends on your budget and your needs.

I recommend starting out with a used or refurbished model - let someone else eat the depreciation on the camera. After you have shot with a digital SLR for a while you will have a much better idea what features matter most for your needs and can make a better decision what new(er) model is the best fit for your money. Obviously you know a bit about photography having used a film EOS camera but there are many things that are different about a digital body. One of the biggest differences is that they come out with a new camera several times a year, and a camera body that is just 2-3 years old will be 2-3 generations old, and worth only a small fraction of the price it sold for new - unlike film bodies that held their value much longer.

Focal length equivalents

If you are considering a Nikon such as the D60, D80, D90, etc.,the standard lens sold with the camera is 18-135mm. This is not the sameas an 18-135mm on a 35mm film camera. The equivalent 35mm film cameralens would be 27-202mm (you multiply by 1.5), about the same as what youhave now. If I were planning to do wildlife photography, I would buy a usedNikkor ED 70-300mm AF lens on E-bay. You should be able to get one for$200 or less (the new price is $550+). This lens is designed for a 35mmfilm camera and is the equivalent of a 105-450mm when used on a Nikon digital cameras. Additionally, it is compadable with the automatic features of the Nikon digital camera bodies. This would give you an excellent portrait lens at 105mm and extra long reachfor wildlife. The fast shutter speed and stabilization circuit on thedigital camera should make it usable in daylight without a tripod. I havethis lens on a Nikon film camera and it is a superior lens. At a 1/1000second or faster shutter speed, I get sharp hand held photos.

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.

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)
