Sounds like the optics have shifted and they have to be recollimated. its not the type of thing that you should try yourself as when they are open dust can get inside and remain on the optics, causing black specks in field of view when using...www.reichinstruments.com

I dropped my Binoculars and the lens are out of focus with each other. Can you help?


Your binoculars either have a bent or broken yoke assembly (the bit which carries the eyepieces) or one or more prisms have came unseated. It's not uncommon to have both faults after dropping binoculars.

The first repair involves replacing the entire yoke assembly: the part is expensive in comparison to the retail cost of a new pair of binoculars and with labour charges on top is not usually a cost-effective repair except on high end models which cost in excess of around £250

The second repair is straightforward and fairly quick for anyone with the right collimation equipment (in effect, a professional repairer), but the screw(s) usually need to be secured with thread-locking liquid afterwards to prevent them working loose.

Either way, you need to decide whether to send the binoculars for a repair estimate or to replace them.

I hope you manage to use this information to fix your binoculars or at least that it assists you to choose your next course of action. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

I'm getting double vision in my Nikon 10X50 Lookout II binoculars. This is the second time in about 2 years. They have been excellent for many years ad I really don't want to buy any more at this time. ...


Hi cmbaldwin,
Double vision is caused by misaligned collimation,
Make sure all segments are screwed tightly together.
including the screw under the little cap on the center hinge.

If none of the above fixes it, you probably have a misaligned prism In the binoculars. That unfortunately is a factory fix.
I would call Nikon customer service on the phone,
Tell them you love their product, but are very, very, frustrated with the same problem repeating itself ( I hope you haven't dropped the binoculars)

If you get nowhere, ask to speak to the customer service manager, explain the problem all over again.
If that will not resolve it. Ask them them if they have a trade up program.
Never hurts to ask.

As you say, they are a outstanding company to work with.
and let them know that you won't settle for anything less than a Nikon. They do want you as a lifelong customer.

Don't get frustrated, just keep jumping through the hoops until you get the problem resolved to your satisfaction.
Good luck and best regards, Paul

Setup and loading pictures..


my computer makes the windows uploder pop-up. when it pops up make sure it says "cyber-shot photo viewer" or something of the like.

then right click on the little binoculars in your taskbar (look down at the far right corner where all those little icons are, it's called "cyber-shot viewer media check tool"

right click, import settings, then specify a file to drop the images.

thats the only thing i can think of. call sony if that doesn't help. good luck

Canon PowerShot Dropped: Blank Screen


For Ravi, this definitely sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110
By the way, don't tell Canon that you dropped the camera. Sounds like the CCD imager was about to go bad anyway, and the drop just accelerated this.

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
