Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Pentax Optio33LF digital camera, I have seen a home made 35mm slide copier wich is essentially a tube which fits on to the boss on the face of the camera ( at the lens mount ) at the outer end of this tube a slide viewer is mounted. The slide is placed into the viewer, the camera is pointed at the sky then a shot is taken. Is this a good thing to do with the camera? Regards,Jim Edger

    I have had difficulty signing on what do I have to do ? what have I missed, all I need is advice in the original posting on the viability of the project. There is nothing wrong with the camra itself !

Which digital camera can fit Albinar ADG lens 80-200mm ?


I bought my wife a Pentax body for Christmas from Adorama.com. She had several Pentax lenses for her old 35mm and I didn't want to have to replace 4 lenses. It is the Pentax K-x. The lenses fit and eventually I figured out how to get the camera to actually permit me to USE it. (hint: switch to M and change the focal switch to MF... for some reason I thought there was something i changed in the menu as well, but can't find the setting). The only thing I don't like about the K-x is that it uses AA batteries and even NiMH rechargeable batteries don't last long. Maybe look for one with a rechargeable lithium battery. HTH

Can I use the old lenses on a new camera


Your old Pentax lenses uses the Pentax K mount. The current Pentax digital SLRs all use the same K mount so the lenses will fit on them. You obviously won't get all the features available on new lenses, such as autofocus, but they should all work fine.

I have a Pentax k1000, and was given a few vivitar and olypus lenses. They do not fit the camera. What can I do?????


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Lenses with the Pentax K-mount can be used on the K1000, lenses with other mounts can not.

Olympus lenses will not mount onto a Pentax camera.

You can sell the lenses, give them to someone with the appropriate camera(s), or use them as paperweights.

Pentax k-m not recognized in iphoto


I'm unfamiliar with iPhoto, but if it's fully up to date and still does not list the Pentax K-M then see if it allows you to manually select the Pentax K-200D.

As the K-M is essentially a budget variant of the K-200D it may solve your problem.

If not, then hang on a bit longer and someone who is familiar with iPhoto may see your question and be able to provide a more accurate answer.

I have 2 quantaray lenses which I brought with my 35mm SRL are these lenses compatiable with Digital SRL cameras???


Which type of lens mount, what digital camera.
Nikons will fit older Nikon lenses.
Canon it seems only fits AF lenses
Olympus digital only takes their own new mounts.
Minolta lenses will fit the new Sony/Minolta digitals.
Pentax digital will take any K-mount or older thread mount. Need to change some menu setting though. Need a K to 42mm for the thread mounts.
Mounts are all different, so a Canon won't fit a Nikon, Sony or Pentax and vise versa.

I have an old Pantax 35mm SLR camera (zx5). Would the lenses still fit the new bodies or do I need to purchase an entire new kit?


Nope! Your old Pentax (and Taukimar!) lenses will still work. Any type of "K-Mount" lens will work on a Pentax digital.

Pentax K110D and Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX DG


The Penta K110D has a 1.5X crop factor so a 17mm lense would be the equivalent to 25.5mm (in 35mm standard), therefore may not give you a 103 angle view. You would not really notice that much difference between 17 and 18mm.
