Where and how do you insert film on a minolta vectis 2000 camera


Essentially, you probably don't as APS film is no longer made and is getting difficult to get processed if you do get some old stock.

But like on all APS cameras, there's a lock on one end of the camera and usually you turn it to open a small door on the bottom of the camera. The APS film cassette gets pushed into the compartment and when you close the door and the camera *should* wind the film ready for shooting and lock the door so that you cannot open it until the film is rewound. The cameras are entirely battery dependent and many used CR2 lithium batteries which are disproportionately expensive and hard to find except from online suppliers.

Unfortunately APS was a badly engineered system from the start, so the cameras didn't tend to last long before suffering major faults. You may wish to bear that fact in mind as those faults won't show until you load a film and any film you do find will likely cost more than you can buy another APS camera for. They're widely available for free or for about a £ or two from almost any charity shop (not from the one I work in though as I always put them straight into the recycling bin as they're a liability).

Take a phot and the phot dosent come out?. Yes there is a new film in the camera


Unless you bought the photo pack recently from The Impossible Project, then it's not new at all and is long past it's use by date.

Polaroid photo packs have the camera battery built into them, and by now every single one will either be stone cold dead or with only just about enough power to eject the cover slide and power the shutter. Even if the battery did work, you'd find the photo chemicals have also gone stale, producing odd colour casts, uneven contrast and usually the camera eject rollers fail to squeeze the chemicals right across the photo fully into the far corners. If the photo pack has been stored refrigerated the whole time before use then the chemistry may be good but the battery will definitely be as dead as a dodo as cold kills batteries.

You only have two fixes:-

1. Remove the current photo pack in total darkness and store it in a light-proof bag, and then modify the camera to take an externally switched 6V dc power supply (it only really needs 4.5V, but 6V is fine and easier/cheaper to get batteries/transformers for). Then replace your photo pack, it will wastefully self-eject the top photo as if it was a cover slide. As the camera was never designed to be dismantled this often results in a broken camera, but they are ten a penny at thrift shops and charity stores and easily available for free via FreeCycle/Freegle.

2. Remove and discard the current photo pack and replace it with a new one from The Impossible Project. Note that they are not the same as the original material: there's only 8 shots instead of 10 and the results are less predictable and far more prone to fading, so scan photos after taking them to preserve the images. The material is aimed far more at artistic users who wish to manipulate the images during development.

What is the price of this model


Nothing. Quite literally. It's a basic 35mm compact camera and so there is no demand. Charity/thrift shops are filled with similar models, unsold and gathering dust. Plenty of similar cameras are available every day on FreeCycle and Freegle.

The good news is that means that you have a very nice to use 35mm film camera which is robust and you don't have to worry about damaging it and affecting it's value. Use it, break it, chuck it away and get another for zilch.

Where do you put batteries in a polariod 600 one step camera?


The batteries are part of the photo pack, when you change photo packs the battery changes at the same time.

Unfortunately almost all unused photo packs will now have flat batteries as they've been out of production for two and a half years now. Photo packs advertised as having been stored in a fridge will definitely have dead batteries as cold kills batteries. Photo packs kept out of a fridge may have some residual battery power, but not enough to last the full ten photos, and the chemicals may have gone stale resulting in poor quality photos.

The only solution is to modify the camera to take an external 6v power supply, such as a battery or a socket to accept a plug in DC adapter. It involves opening the camera (not easy: it's all clip together and was never designed to be dismantled) and then soldering wires to the camera's battery contacts and feeding them out through a hole drilled into the bottom of the camera. A flat Polaroid battery may have enough residual power for you to determine the contact polarity using a test meter. Get it wrong and the camera is dead, but Polaroid 600's are ten a penny at charity/thrift shops and free on FreeCycle/Freegle. Modifying the camera without dismantling it is possible, but very fiddly and you need to be careful not to let the hot soldering iron melt any of the plastic camera. It's like trying to perform keyhole surgery!

I've done this modification myself a few years ago, but last year gave the camera to an eager photography student.

I need the brand new price for a minolta riva zoom 70 af please


These have not been sold new for a while (in the UK).

Do you mean the price of an equivalent camera, or the price (some years ago) when you could buy it new, and in which part of the world.

You can get a lot of them "as new" - from £5 - £20 (inc shipping) on eBay .. for example ....

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=minolta+riva+zoom+70

Local charity shops int the UK would have a price tag of £1 - £5 on it nowadays ,and not expect it to sell. Film cameras have died a death here, and this minolta was never a top rated model.

Where can I find a user manual?


Sometimes youcan go to the Olympus website and download it for free or you might have to buy it. Check there first. If not you might be able to locate one on ebay. If not there then go to a camera shop and they should be able to get one for you.
