Water or any liquid is a camera killer, unless it's a under water camera. don't know of any camera repair shops that will repair liquid damaged camera's Reason---- cannot guarantee them. So it looks like you have a neat paper weight.

Using nimh in old film camera?


Yes you may. The caution against NiCads is that they have a different discharge curve and won't last very long in a camera. NiMHs are much better, though they still won't last as long as alkalines.

Hi, I have inherited by dad's old Nikon FM camera - well I think it's a FM! It has not been used for centuries and I was able to take one picture before it the view screen went black. I have taken...


The mirror has locked up, blacking out the viewfinder. Mirror lock up is usually due to flat batteries, so replace them as soon as possible. Extended lock up is bad for the camera.

The FM uses a pair of SR44 batteries, you can use the cheaper LR44's but the voltage characteristics are different and exposures will be a little off, but if you're using print film then you're unlikely to notice any problem.

The batteries are very widely available, the link I've provided is for the mail order supplier I use in the UK. Even if the supplier is of no use to you the information they provide shows you most of the other names that the identical batteries are sold as by various manufacturers.

If new batteries don't fix it then the camera is effectively beyond economic repair.

OK it's worth asking which Impossible film you're using, as they're selling two kinds. One being old outdated and repackaged Polaroid made film, and one being their new production run film.

If you've purchased the old stock stuff there's a VERY good chance those old batteries in the pack are simply exhaused beyond use and the film pack is therefore useless. I'd personally contact Impossible for support.

Mamiya 645 AF back won't advance film.


The battery in the film back is only used to supply power when the back is off the camera, when it is on the body power is supplied by the six batteries in the body so try them and also make sure the film insert is properly seated.

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light...


Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

I am looking for my polaroid camera film. 600 plus


It's been out of production now for about two years. Any you do find will be past the expiry date, so you'll likely either find that the battery pack has insufficient power to last an entire film pack or that the film itself is "off" and has poor colours and that the emulsion does not get squeezed by the film rollers into the photo corners.

Any film packs you do find are likely to be expensive AND a total gamble. A company was recently reported to have announced plans to put the film packs back into production next year, but prices are likely to be at least £30 for just one (ten photo) film pack and I've heard nothing more since then.

What I did with my old Polaroid camera was to fit an external 6v battery pack of my own design to the camera. I then kept an eye out for old stock film packs which have been kept refrigerated; this meant that the batteries in the film packs were always flat but the photo chemistry itself remained fresh and fully usable. I'd post links showing you how I modified the camera, but lost interest a few months ago and sold the camera and photo packs to an enthusiastic photography student. It is a straightforward job though which simply involves opening the camera, soldering one wire to each of the two battery terminals and then running the wires out through the base of the camera to any suitable 6v battery pack. I used a slim LiPo battery left over from a dead digital camera.

Dawn

remove the battery and check that it is good. replace battery and open back door, close the door and it should run the motor / transport. if so, load film up to the drive sprocket being sure film will catch on the sprocket.
or move the latch holding back cover, and open the door fully. check the pressure plate on the door, gently pull the plate up a little to increase pressure on the film. bring the holding lever out toward the latch and close the door to lock the lever back to position.
