You'll need to shoot in Manual mode with this lens. Control the shutter speed from the camera, the aperture with the ring on the lens. You'll also get no help from the camera's exposure meter, so you'll have to use the review and/or histogram.

How to connect the rokinon lens mirror len 800mm to a Nikon d3100 camera


The lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You must shoot in manual mode (turn the mode dial to M). You'll have to set the aperture and shutter speed without any assistance from the camera's light meter. You can review the photo and use the histogram to adjust the exposure.

Installing the Rokinon 500mm/1000mm f/8.0 Mirror Lens for Nikon


This lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to use the camera on the Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. You will not get any metering help from the camera's light meter, but you can use the histogram to fine-tune your exposure. You also have to focus the camera manually.

You'll want to use a tripod or other support, as the lens will magnify every bit of camera shake.

Rokinon 500mm for nikon D5100


The filters go on the back of the lens (the end that connects to the camera). If you detach the lens and look inside, you'll see a threaded ring. Simply screw the filter on, similar to how you put filters on the front end of other lenses.

Due to the great magnification ratio of this lens, you absolutely need to have it on a tripod or other stable support. Even the slightest camera shake will be magnified.

The lens also has very little depth of field, so you must focus precisely. Since you're mounted on a tripod, you might want to activate the LiveView feature and zoom in the subject while you focus.

I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200


Fisheye is the extreme of a wide angle lens. I think you are not using a fish eye lens, but a fish eye adopter. That is a lens that will "shorten" the focal length of a lens most of the time with 30 % sometimes with 50% when you put it in front of your lens. So you could make a 24 mm lens look or act like a 12 mm.
On your tele lens this only will slightly shorten the 55 mm, but even 50 % of 55 is 27 mm and can't be seen as a fish eye.
I think when you put this on a short lens, the picture you get will be round, like you were using a real fish eye.

How to attach filters to a Rokinon 500mm/ 1000mm Mirror Lens for Canon EOS


For the Rokinon 500mm F/6.3 lens, you can either attach 95mm filters to the front or 34mm filters to the rear of the lens.

For the Rokinon 500mm F/8 lens, you can only attach 30.5mm filters to the rear of the lens.

To attach a filter to the rear of the lens, remove the lens from the camera (or take the rear lens cap off). There's a threaded screw mount just inside of where the lens fits onto the camera. Take your filter and screw it into place. Hand tighten until it's snug and doesn't project in the way---remember, you're going to want to take it off again later.

I JUST got a Nikon Cool Pix L22 but no matter what setting I use EVERY picture is blurry. I am an art teacher and understand shutter speed and aperture, I even used a tripod. The pictures are still...


Most likely your fisheye lens attachment is out of alignment. An internal element may have come unscrewed or unglued. The other option (I'm assuming you have already checked this) is that it is incorrectly attached to the camera - check your threads and make sure it wasn't cross threaded and that there are no blockages to the lens attachment being screwed in completely. If the fisheye lens is not in the correct position relative to the CoolPix lens, then the pictures will be blurry.

I dropped my Nikon D5000 and now the lens won't stay attached. What can I do?


There's probably nothing you can do yourself...you need to send or take it in for service. Contact Nikon for the nearest service center.

Can you use a fisheye lens on the Nikon Coolpix P80


I do not think any company makes an Fisheye lens attachment for Nikon P80. This is a fixed lens camera.
If it is being manufactured by any 3rd party then Nikon then you can only attach it to the front of the P80's lens.
Caution. Nikon P80 is a super zoom and lens barrel is made up of plastic that is too light weight. Do not attach heavy peace of metal on the lens. it can only carry the filters.

I just purchased the Zeikos fisheye lense for my 50mm Nikkor lens and when I attach it, it doesn' take fisheye photos - just regular with some distortion around the edges... am I using this incorrectly?...


The 50 mm lens is a full frame lens, and the D80 is a DX camera. This means that the 50mm lens puts an image out that is bigger than what the D80 can "see". The good part of this is that the D80 (and most of the other Nikon DSLR's) use only the image from the center part of an older lens. The bad part is that if you put the fisheye filter on it, the fisheye effect that is mostly seen at the edges of the lens doesn't show up on the D80 sensor. If you could put the fisheye filter on a DX lens, it would give you the full effect.
