How do I change lens orientation on my F828?

It does'nt explain how in the manual. Is there a button or some kind of release? Or do you just man handle it? I dont want to just try and twist it and damage my camera.

Just move it. I assume you're talking about the swivel? It's just a friction joint. Hold the body and rotate the lens up or down.

Lens error 12 & 25 at first, now the unit won't power on unless it's set to playback mode

For quick reference, here is a copy of your owners manual http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14051/~/user's-manual---d80---guide-to-digital-photography Solution 1 • Unlock focus area selector. • Auto-area AF selected for Custom Setting 2 (AFarea mode): choose another mode. • Press shutter-release button halfway to turn monitor o?¬? or activate exposure meter • Memory card is full, locked, or not inserted. • Flash is charging. • Camera is not in focus. • CPU lens with aperture ring attached without locking aperture at highest f/-number. • Non-CPU lens is attached: rotate camera mode dial to M. • Mode dial rotated to S after shutter speed of bulb selected in mode M: choose new shutter speed • P, S, A, and M modes: lower ?¬? ash. • Digital Vari-Program modes: turn ?¬? ash o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Press multi selector up or down or rotate sub-command dial to choose photo information displayed Select All for Playback folder. Note that Current will automatically be selected when next photo is taken • Select On for Rotate tall. • Photo was taken with O?¬? selected for Auto image rotation. • Camera orientation was changed while shutter-release button was pressed in continuous shooting mode. • Camera was pointed up or down when photo was taken Use Nikon-approved card. • Card may be damaged. Contact retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative. • Delete unwanted ?¬ les or insert new memory car after removing and replacing the memory card and powering off then back on your cam, you may see how the system now registers your photos will having to click back and forth between AUTO and MAN. I posted very closely related troubleshooting steps to take in order to prevent your CAM from performing badly. Check your CAM batteries to ensure they are using only approved NIKON batteries as anything else will cause you lots of errors and potential problems. When you using the timer or remote options, remember these are controlled by battery as well, radio frequency, and radio wave lengths. When you press the button to take a photo, inspect the button, press firmly for a second and release. If your button is not performing the way it should, inspect it to see if any wear and tear is visible to you. Check free deprey around the button such as DUST, HAIR BUILDUP, and small particals that are hardly visible to the human eye. With very low velocity pressure air, blow around the shoot button as build up will cause the same error your experiencing.

I need to replace the lens hood for my Sony dsc f828 . What size should I be looking for ? 55 mm ? Thanks

The lens thred is 58mm on F828, however a 58mm lens hood does not work; I have both a reverseable and a regular 58mm flower hood that extends 1/2" to the front of the lens causing dark corners on 28mm focal length. In addition, the lens itseft has built in receiver for hood as labled in the manual, I am thinking to get a 62mm or 60mm reversable hood and match up with the receiver on the lens

After having the f828 in my luggage the lens and the body are not tight together anymore. when i hold the lens with my left hand the body joggles left an right? can i unscrew the camera and tighten a screw...

I fixed that problem by tightening up screws but they were inside the lens turret swivel mechanism. This required some fairly major surgery to get to them and it was a bit intimidating. I carefully noted all the steps, took plenty of photos on the way using the Nikon macro, and consulted the service manual. The outcome was a fully restored and serviceable F828 which, despite its age is going on holiday with me again soon to the South Pacific. All the detail for the surgery is on http://howtheheckdididothat.blogspot.com/ I hope that helps you and the many others I know have had the same problem. Good luck - I hope you have it fixed after all this time. The F828 is still hard to beat in many respects.

Tamron 90mm 2.5 adaptall man focus lens

You probably have to set the aperture manually on the lens, because it might not have CPU contacts. I think changing the aperture on the camera will probably have no effect, so just try twisting the aperture ring to wide open.

You usually have to set the aperture at the minimum setting (highest number) so that if the camera is choosing the aperture, it can stop down to the required value.

No good having it set at f2.8 if the shot needs f11.

If the lens is very old, it might have a manual iris that you have to set yourself on the lens. The lenses that stop down automatically will have a tiny peg on the mount that a suitable camera can operate. Gentle pushing of this peg while looking through the lens will tell if it is stopping down - set it wide open first.

If you have a depth of field preview button, this will also have the same effect with the lens on the camera if the body matches up with the lens.

The site has a link to the service manuals which might help, otherwise my detail might be all you need. See: http://howtheheckdididothat.blogspot.com/2010_10_01_archive.html There are lots of pictures and step by step instructions. Hopefully this will fix your problem.

Flexible circuit board

Camera manufacturers are renowned for not releasing parts manuals or service manuals so the best bet would be to use another camera to take some shots of the part you need and email them to Sony. They'll figure out what you need. Unfortunately some of these flat ribbon cables are terminated within a particular part and so you may have to be that part with the cable attached. BMW

F828 and ISO question

because you are (a) opening the lens aperture to let in the maximum light and (b) making the sensor more sensitive so that it requires less light, so the camera must do what it can to counter your settings - to reduce the light by minimizing the time of the exposure. I presume this is a hypothetical question, as you don't normally want to use ISO this high with the F828 if it can be avoided.
