There is something wrong with my Nikon D3000. It turns on but doesn't show anything on the screen and when I look through the lens it's shows a grainy dark film. It can't be the lense because I...


There seems to be two separate issues here. I'm going to assume you have a charged battery pack in the camera.

First, the screen. Turn the camera on. Do you see the menu when you press the MENU button? Does the shooting info show when you press the Info button? Can you see previously taken photos when you press the Playback button? If none of those show up then something is wrong with the screen (or the battery is dead).

Second, the viewfinder. First, make sure the viewfinder in the back is clean. Now turn the camera on and look through the viewfinder. Do you see the eleven focus marks? Do you see the info at the bottom? Now turn the camera off and remove the lens. Don't touch anything inside the camera! Do you see a mirror at a 45-degree angle? Is it clean? Look at the focusing screen above the mirror. Is it clean? Now look through the viewfinder and point the camera out a window. Do you see a more-or-less white blob, or the same grainy dark film?

How to use Nikon Pk-3 extension tube?


It should work with just about any lens, though it works best with moderate focal lengths (say about 24mm to 200mm). Its primary purpose is to let the lens focus much closer than normal.

When you say "no results," do you mean it's not letting you focus closer? Mount the tube on the camera, mount a lens on the tube, then focus the lens to its minimum focus distance. Looking through the viewfinder, move closer to an object until it comes into focus. Does it come into focus? How close? What lens(es) are you trying?

I have just started using my husband Pentax K100D camera. The viewfinder seems really dark. My camers is a Fujifilm S5700 that seems to have a lighted viewfinder. Is there any way to make the viewfinder...


The best way to lighten the viewfinder is to purchase a new focusing screen. There are many alternatives available and usually cost around $100. There are specialty screens to allow better manual focusing and others that brighten the viewfinder. These effects are usually achieved through coatings on the screen. They are relatively simple to install, however if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself, a local camera shop should be able to do it in a matter of minutes.
This screen will allow better focusing of manual lenses and will also brighten the viewfinder, when you purchase the "Brightness enhancement treatment" option at the bottom of the page. http://www.katzeyeoptics.com/item--Pentax-K100D-K110D-K200D-K-r-K-x-Focusing-Screen--prod_K100D.html
The linked product also fits your camera, and the brand is highly regarded as being good quality. There are other options available though, simply search on B&H Photo Video or Adorama Camera. They have many different options.

My canon lens 28-135 produces focused pictures but looks fuzzy in the viewfinder...is there something that has to be cleaned?


If your camera has a viewfinder diopter adjustment (small wheel a the side of the viewfinder) try moving this up and down to see if that corrects the problem

Image in viewfinder slightly unfocused, photo clear.


Either your viewfinder needs to be cleaned or your camera needs to be cleaned. Most of the time it is the mirror in the camera that is causing this issue and cleaning it will make everything better.

Rebel 350d - i press button 1/2 way and it auto focuses but wont take pic when presses the rest of the way. every once and a while it will take a pic.any thoughts?


it won't take the picture until the focus is not confirmed (big dot lights up in the lower right side of the viewfinder) even though the button is pressed all the way down.
tamron lenses are notorious for slow (noisy) auto focus, so you have to be patient when focusing and half press repeatedly several times before it locks down, confirmes the focus and takes the picture.

There are 2 possibilities. The viewfinder lenses are dirty or, depending on the model, there is an adjuster, right at the viewfinder, to adjust the focus of the viewfinder. It has NOTHING to do with the picture, only the viewfinder.
