    I have the Service Manual of DSC-F828 but I don't find any details about this mechanical aspect.

    Same problem here with the camera body and the lens body loose at the swivel point. Am convinced this is also contributing to recent photo blur. Otherwise, after more than 10K photos over the past four years and my third Sony it's been a great camera.

    Yes I could use a manual on this camera depending on what the price is ? I am in the car sales business and I think you know what's happened to our business in this economy. What kind of manual is it ? is it just the manual that comes with the camera ? or is it a factory type service manual ?



    Thanks Tim

Autofocus lens frozen


What do you mean with autofocus lens frozen?
What lens do you use, and what are the settings on your camera. Even when you have chosen automatic on the main dail, to the left of the lens is a switch on the camera, that can be set to manual. Even on a lot of AF lenses, are switches that can be set to manual.
In your camera only modern AF lenses with Nikon F connection will work with AF. The older AF lenses (Mechanical focus) need a focus motor in the camera body, only found in the camera's that also have a little LCD screen on top of the camera. (Not in 3x00, or 5x00 models)
But if you are sure this lens worked in your camera before, please check the switches on the camera and on the lens.
Still problems? tell me what lens you are using and how is the switch AF / M on your camera now?

I have the aperture at the lowest number but when I look into the viewfinder everything is dark and when I turn the aperture to lighten up the viewfinder it gives the fee


It sounds like the mechanical lever in your camera that normally couples the aperture to the camera to lock it to the widest opening for focusing is locked into the fully closed position, or that the electronics are not allowing the lens to open to fully open, depending on the type of lense being used.

Also, it could be an issue with the lense.

The simple way to test this will be to remove the lense, and to rotate the aperture ring while looking through the lense. If you see the aperture getting larger/smaller the lense aperture is fine. If it is not - the lense is damaged and needs to be replaced, or at best serviced. This can be done through Nikon, a local shop if you have one, or through online shops, I'd recommend KEH Camera in Atlanta if you have to go that way.

To test the camera side, if the lense appears to be working is also simple for the mechanical lever. With the lense removed, hold the camera in front of you looking into the lense mount. On the left side, you should see a small lever like piece. With your finger, see if this piece will move downward - it is spring loaded and should smoothly go down and pop back up. If it doesn't go down, or doesn't spring right back up, then the issue is on the camera mechanical side.

If both of those check fine, you may try a manual focus Nikon mount lense if you have access to one - to eliminate the camera electronics from being an issue, and the lense from being an issue as if this lense doesn't work, it's a mechanical issue. If you have access to another AF lense you know is working, and it doesn't work on your camera, you've narrowed it down to either the mechanical lever, or the electronics.

Most likely culprit is the lense itself.

I have a hasselblad 503cx. when i hit the shutter button, the back part of the lens opens (where the film is) but the lens shutter is closed. when i let go, the lens opens and the back closes.


The proper order of exposure should be:

Curtain opens/Lense stops down (unless wide open)
Lense shutter closes
When releasing button, curtain closes
When winding, lense shutter opens

If this isn't what's happening, something is wrong. There is only a simple mechanical screw connection between body and lense, so it'd have to be an issue with the gears in the body.

Doesnt seem to work with the lens which was on my old K1000 which is a SMC Pentax-M1:2 50mm, serial number 5918334 any ideas?


Although your lens is an older manually operated K mount and will physically fit onto your camera, there are incompatibilities which limit the level to which it is compatible with your *ist DS.

Ignoring the really obvious difference that your lens is totally incapable of autofocus, the first real incompatibility is that your camera body has one of the "crippled" versions of the KAF (autofocus) mount. This means that it lacks the mechanical stop-down coupler/indicator used on the original K mount. The result is that your camera body does not sense which aperture the lens is set to and will not stop the lens down to the selected aperture when you press the shutter release. The full specification KAF mount maintains these old mechanical legacy couplings, but as most owners don't use older lenses any more the crippled KAF isn't an issue to most users and significantly reduces manufacturing costs. Crippled KAF lenses can still use some manual K lenses, but only the ones which have the A setting on the aperture ring and your lens pre-dates this development.

Your only realistic fixes for this are to either replace the camera body with a model supporting the full KAF mount (expensive) or to use later K lenses with the description SMC Pentax A instead of earlier SMC Pentax M. You'll still lack autofocus but as long as the lens aperture ring is set to the A position then it will work when the body is set to shutter priority and Automatic modes. There are far more Pentax A lenses remaining in good condition than Pentax M so you should have no trouble finding them, but because of their compatibility with later mounts you'll find that prices are somewhat higher.

Note that there is no adaptor which will allow you to improve compatibility between your present camera and the lens you have asked about.

I hope that I've answered your question, if so please take a moment to rate my reply. If not, perhaps you should add a comment to further explain in which way your camera doesn't work with your lens and I'll then try to assist you further.

Lens does not autofocus. Problem is not camera related (other lenses autofocus OK in camera; problem exists in two different camera bodies).


Send the lens in for service since it could be mechanical or electronic depending upon which brand lens and what camera it fits on.

I have a Nikon D200 and the auto focus isn't working on any of my lenses. What should I try?


There's a small contact area that has to make the electrical contact between the lens and body in order for the autofocus to work. Check this on the body for any damage or corrosion that may keep the connection from happening. There is also a very small mechanical connection between the two pieces - the D200 has the autofocus motor in the body itself - check for a small shaft that may be blocked or damaged as well.

ON DISPLY, APERTURE SHOW fEE AND DONT SHOOT


In all but aperture priority mode and manual modes you must set this lens to it's minimum aperture setting (i.e. highest number) to allow the camera body to fully control the aperture for you.

You'll also get this problem when using certain Nikon bodies which rely solely on electronic communication of the lens settings to the camera body (e.g. Nikon F75) as they lack the ability to read the mechanical linkages on the rear of the lens.

Adapter


it depends what mount your vivitar lenses have - you can easily search ebay for mount adaptors that will allow you to use most older lenses on the 4/3 body, but you will only be able to use manual focus and need to work in aperature priority or fully manual mode. A generic adaptor for a OM, Nikon, Pentax or Contax mount should cost around $20. you should read up on them as there are some differences with how they are made and function, but basically are just mechanical coupling devices that fit the lense to the camera. remember, you lose all automatic features

Broken?


If if won't focus manually then there is a problem with the helicoid and you'll need it professionally repaired. Don't force it.
