SOURCE: Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

SOURCE: Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for

I thought I had the same "problem." The symptoms were identical. Try pressing the "disp" button to the right of the LCD screen a time or two to get the screen the way you want it. There are three settings: LCD off, LCD on, LCD on with grid marks. I'm a novice, but this worked for me!

Can someone tell me about serial #6211258 Nikon,Nippon kogaku ,Tokyo camera/and #4230191 sanko koki Tokyo komura 135mm 3.5 lens


Which model Nikon body do you have?

The lens appears to be an older, manual focus, fairly fast at f3.5 135mm telephoto lens. They made faster f2.8, f2.3 and an f2.0 version which gathered nearly 4 times more light than your f3.5. People seem to like the sharpness and other results of photos taken with the lens and like the build quality.

See the discussion about the lens here:
Sankyo Koki Tokyo KOMURA 135mm F3 5

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.

Mamiya C3 film advance


Hi there,Here's a link to a PDF instruction manual of your camera body.
http://www.cameramanuals.org/mamiya_pdf/mamiya_c3.pdf



It is possible that the crank handle is missing, as it is a removable piece. Bring your camera to a camera shop and see if they have a box of old parts to replace it with. You can either use a regular round knob, or (if you're lucky) one with a crank on it.


Good luck!

It is probably the battery. A lot of these cameras have electronically controlled shutters, that automatically fire at the fastest speed possible if there isn't a battery to slow it down.

Focusing a mamiya k/l lens.how do i use the floating element ring? thank's


Step A. Set the floating element ring to its' infinity position (if you are using extension tubes, this will vary and you must set according to the tubes).
Step B. Focus the camera on your subject.
Step C. Look at the bellows scale on the camera body (it will generally range from 0-40) Important: Don't read the scale akin to the lens you are using. This will make perfect sense, when you examine the bellows. Mentally record this number.
Step D. Adjust the floating element ring to the recorded number.
Step E. Leave the ring on this new setting and re-focus the camera on your subject.
Step F. Make sure the dark slide is removed and capture your photograph. :)
- That's it mate. Not so foreboding, when you

Fauly aperture ring on mamiya/sekor 135mm f2.8 m42 lens


Does the aperture work when you turn the ring and push the aperture pin on the mount in? The lens should close down to the set aperture when you do this. If it does, then atleast the lens is useable.
What is missing is the detent for the click stops. This is a spring loaded ball bearing that 'clicks' into notches inside the ring. If this is broken or missing, finding a spring the right size might be a challenge, the ball bearing less so. To remove the ring and base, unscrew 3 screws coinciding with the 3 notches in the back plate, visible when you set the ring to f8. the back should lift off easily. don't lose the screws. The ball bearing, if it is still there, should protrude from a small hole in the lens barrel in line with the f stop index mark on the lens. Good luck.
P.S. The above is based on how my 200mm is designed so I'm making some assumptions that the 135mm is put together much the same.

Aperture diaphram on mamiya secor lens 80mm f/2.8


The lens has a lever marked A/M near the aperture ring. If the lever is in the 'A' position, the lens will stay wide open until you trip the control lever at the back of the lens next to the rear optics. In the 'M' setting, you can see the aperture move as you change the f-stop setting on the ring. Set the lens to anything but wide open and move the control lever with your finger. You should see that aperture move.
