WOW...Nice find! If you can find the Nikonos camera that goes with that lens, you've got a s-w-e-e-t underwater system. Nikonos is arguably the best 35mm system for water use. It's water proof to 100 meters. A 15mm or a 21mm lens is prime for taking breath-taking photos. Try to find that camera! Check Ebay or a search engine--use sites like Cnet to see prices! A new 15mm lens sells for $2,240 and the Nikonos V sells for about $750.00---Good luck searchin'---Rick

Hey LELAH,
This lens is intended for a Nikon underwater camera which are branded as Nikonos cameras. These cameras are underwater 35mm cameras and this lens is and extreme wide angle lens to capture underwater scenic’s. This lens is rather expensive and of very high quality. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

How do I make a video


Depends what you want to make a video of. Probably best to start off with a camcorder of some kind - there are many available second hand, often at reasonable prices. Advisable too to get a sturdy tripod, to avoid wobbly films. Get the recording medium (tape, mini-dvd, SD card - check the manual for what is required). Charge the battery for the camcorder, then insert the recording medium, attach the camcorder to the tripod, point it at the subject you wish to record for posterity and away you go.

Can you get a digital back to covert it into digital


Hi.
No. I had never see somethig like a digital back for a film camera like this.
The digital backs made from companies like LEAF and FACE ONE, had only be made for medium format cameras.

Mamiya RB67 Pro S: film counter does not advance, but the film does advance purchase another back same problem. Is there a switch that I'm missing??


If the problem is on the magazine's counter and if the spacing of frames is correct then the counter dial is loose. two screws on the outside front of the top of magazine, two screws in the film chamber hold the top cover. remove leather cover on winding lever loosen screw and remove. you can then remove the complete top housing to expose the counter mechanism.

What kind of cameras will nikon 120mm fit?


It's a specialised lens used only for large format cameras used by professionals where 120mm is considered to be a very wide angle lens.

It's not usable on any Nikon SLR's nor on any medium format models.

Sold privately, and in perfect condition the lens is worth around £250-£350 depending on how much the buyer wants it. From a retailer the price is around £500 (these are UK prices, in the USA they'll be around 25-30% lower).

What type of zoom lenses are suitable for nikkon D-60 digital camera


For Nikon Digital SLRs there is a special line of lenses. Almost any Nikon lens will work on the D60 body, but lenses not specifically designed for a Nikon Digital SLR will lack some features offered by the body. Nikon D series lenses, that are made for the Nikon Digital SLR series, are fully compatible. Although, any lens, AI type thru D type will work.

One of the snags with Digital SLRs is that lenses designed for film cameras have different focal point characteristics, and therefore altered focal length when used on a digital camera.

A film frame is 24mm x 36mm. The CCD in a digital SLR (Charge Coupled Device, changes light energy into electrical energy, which is then recorded as a digital image file inside the camera) is not that large. So the light is focusing on a smaller area surface. This changes the focal length of the lens.

There are other undesireable effects using film camera lenses with Digital SLRs. One of the desireable qualities of old lenses is the cost. The D60 is a great camera. You lose some features with older lenses, but you still get the same image quality.

I cannot tell you exactly what zoom lens to purchase, because it's like you asking what car you should buy. There are too many variables to consider. Most pros carry the famous Nikon D 80-200mm F 2.8 ED, which is a pro lens, with big weight, superb optics, and no finicky soft spots.

It's clean all the way through the range, at every aperature. But the cost is high, probably more than you paid for the D-60 body. But if it were me, I'd spend the money.

Focal length equivalents


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}I believe it is equivalent to a 35 to 210mm lens on a 35mmcamera. 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.

Problems using camera


Hey PopPop1,
The N2000/F301 should be a manual focus only camera. The autofocus version of this camera was called the N2020/F501. The lens you have should still work on the camera, but you should have to focus the camera manually. I have an autofocus camera and whenever I shoot macro images I would much prefer manually focusing anyway.

Sincerely,
Allan
