My Nikon L35 AF's shutter button won't pop back up when I press it down.


Hi Broderick,
You have some (dirt/ dust/ sand) clogged around the clearance between the shutter button and the camera body. If you are a DIY type of person, you can check and clean that dirt, other wise take it to a repair shop for proper cleaning.

You will need to go into more detail.
Do you have film loaded and how many shots have you taken.
Is this equipped with a motor drive? Are the batteries fresh?

Please be specific and detailed.
Thanks,

I just bought a nice used Mamiya twin lens C3 but the shutter is locked up. There is a small metal piece holding the shutter release from moving. Not sure how to un-lock, seams to be a safety device of...


The vertical shutter sliding lever gets locked if the film doesn't get advanced to the next frame, and the mode selector is set for single exposure. You can't trip the shutter unless you have film in the camera and you forward the film to the next frame. That should allow you to release the shutter with the sliding lever.

When I try to take a picture you hear a clicking noise and the flash is working but it will not take a picture


You may be too close to your subject and the autofocus is not locking in. back up a few inches and the shutter should go off. Try turning off auto-focus.
If this isn't the case it could be a shutter problem. Turn off the flash (if you don't you'll get blinded during my next step) look inside the barrel of the lens and click the shutter...you should see a little flicker inside the lens as you hit the shutter button. If you do see it, then it is in fact just the shutter...if not it's the camera itself. Be sure you are holding the shutter button down completely...as halfway only allows you o focus.

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images


You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

Aperture priority malfunction


davidsucklin,
You can use the film lens with the D80, but it it not react to the same settings as it did with the film body, the multiplier factor for the focal length is going to be different and it may be stopped down a bit. When you are shooting in aperture mode are you adjusting your shutter and ISO? The camera and the lens have to be communicating the same info to one another inorder for it to work. First set the camera back to auto mode the check the shot to see the settings (f-stop, shutter speed) test them with different ISO's to see what the camera thinks the settings should be, then go back to manual on the camera and lens and try the shutter priority mode with the aperture ring set at the 2.8 to see if it works then change to Aperture mode with the same settings that can take the picture. If it doesn't work keep in mind som of the older D lenses will drop some functionality (like aperture) in certain configurations. You can verfify compatibilty of your specific lens on Nikon's support site.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right...


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only lose the last frames if the roll is indeed a 24 exp.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.
