Film advance Is there a feature on the N55 camera to advance the unused portion of the film? I would like to get them developed, but only used half the roll. Didn't want to snap off 12 more pics if I didn't have to. Thanks

My Mamiya C330 Pro only gives me 4 photos per roll


A few things to consider:
-Loading: Make sure you are not over loading the film before you start to shoot. I have sometimes turned the film advance too many times and end up cutting down on the amount of usable film.
-Are you loading the film in a dark area and careful to close up the back just after it has started to load to avoid exposing it?
-Shooting: Are you metering properly when shooting? Obviously underexposed images won't develop. You should consider a hand held meter.
-Shooting: Are you advancing the film more than it needs to be after you take your shot? Watch the film counter and feel for that click as it hits the next frame. I have advanced past the next shot many times by accident.
Hope that helps, Matt

I have a role of film w/ 15 shots and I need to finish the rest, how do I use it if it already been roled up


If the film has already been rewound into the cartridge then you need to use a film leader retriever to fish out the end of it again. You then load the film in the usual way and then in total darkness and without flash, fire the shutter 16 times and wind the film on between each shot. You need to waste an image to preserve those already on the film.

Note that you'll then have to tell the minilab operator what you've done: automatic processing equipment will look at the first few developed negatives to determine the frame spacing. When there's a gap halfway along the frame spacing will likely be out of register with the rest of the film, so you may end up with prints of half on e frame and half another. Also when the machine slices your negs into strips, it may cut halfway through some of the resumed shots. All this attention counts as special processing so may cost more.

But to be honest, the tool and the special processing is going to cost more than just losing the unused shots. Just get what you already have developed and printed and slap a new roll of film in the camera.

Recently after putting the film in and taking pics I take it for developement and no pics come out Do you think the film is not advancing properly Maybe I didn't get the new film far enough on the spool to...


Probably.  Most cameras give you a mark to which you pul out the film leader.  
If your cam is one of the power load/wind/rewind models then you must pull the leader right up to the mark
If is one of the older ones with an advance lever, then you can watch the rewind crank to see if it revolves when you wind on.  If it does not, then you have not engaged the film in the take-up spool properly.

Load film in camera press shutter release film dosent stop at 1 keeps going


This may be normal.
Since I don't know what you have, I can't say.
Some camera models are designed to advance the film all at once. then, as you take pics, it winds the film back into the canister, one at a time. If you then open the back of the camera by mistake, you do not expose all your film. Some early Canon Sureshots had that feature.
If your camera keeps trying to advance the film past the end of the roll, have it fixed or replace it.

How do i read a light meter on a Nikon N55? i see the f stop but i dont see the shuter speed, how do i adjust and how do i know its right?


Your camera is either fully automatic or fully manual. In addition it has shutter priority and aperture priority semi-automatic functions. With shutter prior. you pick the shutter speed you prefer and the camera will adjust the aperture. With Aperture prior it works the other way around. The exposure will be always the optimum (decided by the camera program).
You can adjust these automatics with the program dial.

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film


It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

F--


Unlike other cameras that start at frame #1 after loading and count up as the film is used, the N55 advance the film to the last frame during the loading process. When loading is complete, the frame counter stops at the number of available frames on the roll (usually 24 or 36) and counts down as photos are taken. I know it sounds backwards but it actually makes a lot of sense to engineer it this way. After the last photo is taken (displays 1 on the counter), the camera automatically winds the end of the film into the cassette and the counter shows a blinking E. I am assuming that that is what is being displayed and not a blinking F. it it is an F, perhaps there is a problem with the LCD display? If so, it probably isn't worth having it repaired.
