Can Film Camera lenses and Flash be used for Digital Camera Body

If u used to have a Pentax camera, i would recommend you buying a Pentax DSLR, because Pentax film lenses still works on Pentax DSLR. I still use some of my prime lenses on my K10D.

The viewfinder screen is completely black. no image whatsoever. it seems like the camera is functioning everything works from what i gather

Since it's a film camera, there are a couple of things to check: 1. You have left the lens cap on. 2. If this is a single lens reflex camera, take the lens off and make sure that the mirror isn't stuck in the "up" position. If it is, GENTLY pull it down until it stays down. At this point, your shutter may be open. Try cocking the shutter again, fire off a test shot, and see if the mirror sticks in the up position. If it does, you probably need to replace the mirror bumper foam - age can make foam deteriorate into a gooey, tar-like substance that can make the mirror stick in the up position. 3. Does the camera have a T (for Time) setting on the shutter speed dial? If so, turn it off the Time setting and set it to a manual shutter speed such as 1/60 - or whatever your 'X' synch speed is. 4. Your batteries died in mid-exposure. Replace the batteries. You may have enough juice in them to show the viewfinder display, but not enough to finish the exposure and close the shutter.

Battery size

The MZ-60 takes a CR2 Lithium Photo Battery, available at most hardware stores, pharmacies and online at Amazon.com.

Pentax MZ-60 SLR film camera,

Hi Joy. Do this. Turn it on and go into the menu. Locate the reset function. Reset the camera. All this means is that it will reset to factory settings, those that it was set to the day you took it out of the box. If that does not solve your problem, recharge the battery and try it again. If these steps fail, send it to pentax for a repair as there is nothing else that you can do that will not void the warranty. J.

Can you get a digi body camera that will take the


You can try buying a Pentax SLR. But you most probably will need a converter to attach the lens.(That is if the lens will even work at all on the new body).

Av flashing on the LCD.

hi i will give u the possible solutions. try out these solutions and one among these will work for u

1)you need to go into the menu , select settings and change av appurature setting to 2 instead of 1

2)with the lens compatibility / connection, U can fiddle around with the lens and try to find whether the aperture ring on the lens had moved from the 'A' (auto) setting to the one manual settings and when u switch it back to the 'A' setting it will solve the problem!

3) The lens is not completely set on the mount, maybe a little extra push in the turn may lock it in position properly

4)The contacts are dirty on either the camera mount or lens and it's blocking communication between them (but they hae to be very dirty though)
5)Highly unlikely, but you may have forced the lens into the mount the incorrect way (need to match the red dots). If that's the case you may have damaged both camera and lens.

but try out the solution no.2 that i have provided u... it will fix ur problem perfect

Pentax MZ-60 very ******* batteries


the camera has a short circuit. if the camera got wet or was in very high humidity the flex circuit is shorting . take or send your MZ60 to a camera repair shop for an estimate. if the camera has liquid damage they most likely will not repair it.
however if it's just a component part it's fixable.
the battery drain will worsen as the short increases.

Pentax MZ-60 2x teleconverter lense

any good camera store or repair shop should have a 2X tele converter for MZ-60, new or used. i would try e-bay also.

Can you help me purchase a tele converter lens for a MZ-60 camera

You need to track down a 2x teleconverter that has a Pentax A mount for it to work correctly on the moun t of your camera.

I believe Adorama has one here:

Check with them first to ensure compatibility

Fog on right side of photos

Assuming the film door opens from the right, then the most likely reason is the light seal on the door. If it's just got dirty, brush it clean with a stiff brush. If it's badly worn then a camera repair shop may replace it for a reasonable fee - although I have done DIY repairs on this sort of thing using velvet :). Not for the faint-hearted tho'.

BTW the reason it's random is probably that it depends on how long each shot was in the gate before winding on and the ambient light conditions.
