Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

62 size I am assuming that the 62 size will be perfect and it will leave the lens as close to the filter as possible? Is this what I should be shooting for? What if I want to add a macro or a wide-angle lens? Would I need any more adapters to attach another lens, or does it dpend on the lens?

If you want to add other lenses, either macro, wide angle, telephoto or just filters, they go directly on the adapter. That's why the thread size (62mm) is important because that's the best fit for that adapter. If you get other sizes you can still use them with step rings but that adds to the expense and stepping down can cause vignetting. In case you were wondering, here is a link to the Phayee auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/... ...wItem&rd=1&item=3865219929&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?

I'm afraid this will not work.
The filter size from the Nikon is 67 mm. and your vivvitar had a 52 mm tread. The step down convertor from 67 to 52 will block to much to use the wide-angle convertor.
I think you still will see a wider part in the centre of the frame, but in the end, the vignetting that takes place, will leave you with only a part of the picture to use. What stays will be smaller than what you pick up with the lens in the 18 mm setting.

Just try what you see, when you just hold the vivitar in front of the lens and shoot a picture. Take care you don't scratch the front lens of your 18-135. put a cheap UV filter, when you want to test.
See you only have a circular picture with this test.

I have a 12-24 lens and only use it once a year, so if you don't have a special purpose for a wide angle, don't bother buying one.

Will filters I have from old Nikon film camera fit or work with my Nikon Coolpix 8800? (I have heliopan filters) Thank you!

filter size of the Coolpix 8800 is 58mm, you might find single piece adapter/converter rings on ebay...... assuming the Heliopan's are 77mm.... try searching "77 58 ring" but you might have to get 3/4 rings to bridge the difference. Eg. 58-62mm, 62-67mm, 67-72mm, 72-77mm

Would a hoya Infrared R72 filter tamron 72mm lens

That would depend on the filter.

Since Tamron has never made a lens with a fixed focal length of 72mm, I assume the 72mm is referring to the filter thread. I also assume you mean the Hoya RM72 infrared filter. The "72" in the filter name is a description of the filter and has nothing to do with its physical size. One vendor lists the RM72 filter in sizes ranging from 46mm to 77mm. As long as you get the filter to match the thread on the front of the lens then it will screw right on.

Does anyone knows how a Vivitar 75-260mm lens will works on nikon d3000?

Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens in question has a Nikon mount then it will fit perfectly well on a D3000. If the lens has a Canon mount, for example, then it will not fit at all.The lens is a manual focus lens, so autofocus will not work. You'll have to focus by yourself.The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You will have to shoot in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed and aperture yourself, without any help from the camera's light meter.

Error E:62:10 vibrating itself.

On Sony T100 and similar,
its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem.
if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk)
1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit.
2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly
3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws.
you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake)
4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart.
remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out.
5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera.
6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem

if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com

Just found one at a swap meet, cheap. the lens will not close or open...is it worth fixing? Can I work on it? How much is an average repair on this model?

Not many of these were made, and they certainly weren't up to Leica's usual standards. Not at all bad, but certainly no better and possibly slightly worse than comparable high quality compacts from the likes of Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta and Olympus.
Spares are difficult to obtain independently although it's quite possible that the Leica repair centre in Germany may be able to fix your camera. There is no such thing as an "average repair" cost for your model as so few of them come up for repair. If it was a regular mainstream model you'd be looking at around £120 for the lens assembly plus labour costs, but that assumes that it's just the lens assembly and ignores the fact that Leica's optical components are always very expensive to replace.

However, repairs are likely to cost far more than the camera is worth. It's not particularly sought after by collectors, but you're still likely to make a tidy profit if you bought cheaply enough if you list it on an auction website as a spares or repairs example. There are enough uninformed speculators out there who will think that they're getting an easily repairable bargain.

If you want a comparable model (in my opinion superior in every way) then look out for the hugely under-appreciated Canon Sureshot 120 Classic. It's absolutely superb and has one of the best lenses I've ever had on any 35mm compact camera; exposure is outstanding as well and it has spot metering as well. Watch out though, as the word is slowly getting around about them, but until recently they went for around £5 to £15 in absolutely perfect condition.

I have a 7 hp B&G craftsman Pressure washer , if I place an air filter on it ,it wound't start or run , if I remove the air filter it would run like a champ, but after 10 mints , oil would shoot out...

First,

It sounds like the air filter is full of dirt preventing air from flowing through, starving the engine of air.

As for the oil shooting through, are you certain the oil is coming from teh carb?. Makes no sense the engine would run if it also shoots oil out the carb. There is nothing in the engine that would cause this, assuming it's a gasoline engine. And I am not sure a diesel would do this either.

I have a digital canon rebel xt with several lenses. I just purchase a tamron 70-200 1:2.8 lens and want to know the correct setting to take footbal pictures at night from the sidelines. I get perfect...

Light up the scene! Even pro lens would have trouble taking pictures at night. Pro shoot in highly lighted stadium with 10 000$ lens with tripod or monopod. Tamron sells entry level lens, stop searching a trick, you wont find any other than lenlighting the scene!

Lens Protection Size!!!

Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.
