Holga Lens with SLF Turret "no lens attached"

So I've just gotten the lens I mentioned in the title, and I'm a little bit bummed! I've aligned it all correctly and could use it right now, yet my camera keeps telling me "no lens attached", so it won't let me take a photo! I was curious as to if anyone knew how to help me, because I want to start using it asap!

Thank you for your time,

Emily

What kind of camera do you have? I use a dreamy diana lens on a Nikon but haven't done so in a while so don't remember the details. These lenses don't meter or autofocus on digital cameras. You have to put the camera in manual mode (it's possible aperture or shutter priority will do instead, but they won't meter). The way I did it with the diana lens is figure out my setting with a regular lens on my camera, assuming an f/8 aperture (similar to the diana lens). If you're not used to setting your camera, do this by putting your camera in aperture priority setting, turn the aperture to f/8, and see what shutter speed is recommended. Switch the camera to manual mode, set the aperture and shutter speed, take a photo to test it, and then switch lenses. As long as you stay in similar light, you should be fine.

I have a Nikon D40, and that worked great; I just needed to tweak it a little bit, and it started taking pictures immediately! Thank you very much smile
