You can use M (Bayonet) mount and L mount lenses. Note: Lenses with external dimensions exceeding 20.5 mm cannot be used because of the camera’s structure.

I have an old Rolleicord Camera.Am I able to find out more about it from the number (5574350) on the bottom lens?

No, the number on the lense is only the lense serial number. Lenses are/were made by companies separate from the manufacturer of the camera. Generally, if you search for Rolleicord on Google you can find pretty good information but you may have to do some digging to find something that looks like your model. The best bet, is to go by the make/type of lense to narrow it down. Rolleicords were made from the 30's to present day, with various features and lense types, mostly Schneider Xenar's or Zeiss Planar's. You can buy a brand new Rolleicord 2.8G today, for around $3000us, so the look of the camera can really lie about it's age.

Search for things like Rolleicord (lense maker) (lense type) (lense f/number) (shutter type). Shutter type will be Compur MX, MXV, Synchro-Compur M, MX, MXV, etc. Possibly also Compur Rapid. Shutter speeds can also narrow it down, but I believe all Rolleicords were B-500 shutters.

Hi I cannot get my F80 to autofocus. I have tried all my lenses on my Brothers F80 and they all work fine on his camera. I only bought the camera second hand a few days ago and i'm 99% sure when the...

If the gears are stripped, it will require an experienced tech to repair.

That being said, there should be a small switch near the lens mount to switch between auto and manual focus mode's, be sure that that switch is pointing to A. When set to M, the little screw recesses into the mount so it doesn't try to engage, when set to A, it'll extend very slightly.

Also, Nikon has manufactured two types of AF lenses - with the motor in the body and with the motor in the lens, as with most newer lenses. Your camera should have a small screw on the lens mount that drives the focus motor between the lens and the camera, but I'm not 100% certain on that. Your camera can focus lenses with and without this type of coupling. BUT, if that screw/motor in the body is not functioning, you'll only be able to use lenses which contain the focus motor inside them, or manual focus lenses (you can manually focus AF lenses too).

I just purchased my d60 camera, unfortunately I bought it on craigslist, it came with a nikkor 50mm lense, I wanted a auto focus lense to take some sports pictures, I took it to shutterbug camera shop and...

That's odd that Shutterbug camera shop couldn't tell you everything you needed to know about that camera. I looked it up in a PDF manual because the new "small frame" cameras require different lenses as is the case here Autofocus with this camera is only supported by AF-S and AF-I lenses the lens is equipped with the autofocus motor other types of lenses will not autofocus.

The "kit" lens for this camera is the AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 F3.5/5.6G VR.

Now if Shutterbug camera shop mounted an AF-S lens and the camera didn't autofocus then they are right in saying it's broke. I just find it strange they couldn't tell you that straight up. You need to install an AF-S lens and try it, again they may have put the wrong type on it and of course it won't work.

I take it that you don't have the camera manual?

If not go into Google search Type in Nikon D60 PDF manual and click search fifth one down on the first page is what you need click on it and download your "new" manual

Here is the link I used

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&cp=28&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&pbx=1&fp=64f84e119f52b91a

See if that helps, personally I think you just need the correct lens.

I have a Canon Power shot S3 . Can I use a Sigma AF-Mf zoom lens 100-300mm to it. If Yes, what type adapter to use.? I also have a 35-80mm canon lens. can this be used ? Thanks.

Your camera is a fixed lens compact model. You cannot fit other lenses to it unless they are specifically designed as supplementary lenses which screw onto the existing lens filter thread.

There are no adaptors you can safely use either, the only ones would be lens reversing rings which are used to mount lenses backwards for ultra close-up macrophotography, but the weight of the lenses you propose on the end of your existing lens would break your camera.

If you wish to use interchangeable lenses then you need to obtain an SLR or an interchangeable lens rangefinder camera.

I have 2 quantaray lenses which I brought with my 35mm SRL are these lenses compatiable with Digital SRL cameras???

Which type of lens mount, what digital camera.
Nikons will fit older Nikon lenses.
Canon it seems only fits AF lenses
Olympus digital only takes their own new mounts.
Minolta lenses will fit the new Sony/Minolta digitals.
Pentax digital will take any K-mount or older thread mount. Need to change some menu setting though. Need a K to 42mm for the thread mounts.
Mounts are all different, so a Canon won't fit a Nikon, Sony or Pentax and vise versa.

What type of zoom lenses are suitable for nikkon D-60 digital camera

For Nikon Digital SLRs there is a special line of lenses. Almost any Nikon lens will work on the D60 body, but lenses not specifically designed for a Nikon Digital SLR will lack some features offered by the body. Nikon D series lenses, that are made for the Nikon Digital SLR series, are fully compatible. Although, any lens, AI type thru D type will work.

One of the snags with Digital SLRs is that lenses designed for film cameras have different focal point characteristics, and therefore altered focal length when used on a digital camera.

A film frame is 24mm x 36mm. The CCD in a digital SLR (Charge Coupled Device, changes light energy into electrical energy, which is then recorded as a digital image file inside the camera) is not that large. So the light is focusing on a smaller area surface. This changes the focal length of the lens.

There are other undesireable effects using film camera lenses with Digital SLRs. One of the desireable qualities of old lenses is the cost. The D60 is a great camera. You lose some features with older lenses, but you still get the same image quality.

I cannot tell you exactly what zoom lens to purchase, because it's like you asking what car you should buy. There are too many variables to consider. Most pros carry the famous Nikon D 80-200mm F 2.8 ED, which is a pro lens, with big weight, superb optics, and no finicky soft spots.

It's clean all the way through the range, at every aperature. But the cost is high, probably more than you paid for the D-60 body. But if it were me, I'd spend the money.

Older equipment on newer equipment

Carry one of your lenses to a camera store and ask them to let you compair it with one for a Maxxum.

The Sony Alpha / Konica / Minolta mount is called a TYPE A bayonette mount. google the Maxxum and see if it accepts the TYPE A mount.

Camera lense stuck in

Gear box problem ( not so expensive to repair ) or lens impacted ( this type of problem can be sorted out only by replacing the entire lens unit and is often uneconomical ).

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
