Question about Vivitar PS12 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Vivitar PS:35 camera

An s shows up in the display area instead of the # of the film. What does that mean? I'm trying to find out if the film is advancing without taking the film out and exposing pictures.

Try putting a little pressure on the back door right of the finder. If the counter worked, then when film is finished and removed with the back door open you can see a metal lever in the slot that the door fits into. It should be straight vertical if not straighten with a needle or pin to vertical.. No parts are avail. for this model.

What kind of film does this camera take?


It uses 35mm film, sometimes known as size 135. You may use black&white or color, slide or print film, according to your preferences. You should be able to find a small selection of films at most department stores, drug stores, or supermarkets. A camera store, of course, will provide a wider selection.

How do i use the mode setting to insure quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions


Something we have all been wrestling with over the years, LOL.
quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions ? I suggest using the flash as often as you can in those conditions, and get yourself a tripod.
When the skies turn grey, there's less light, so the camera keeps the shutter open longer, which means more likelihood of a blurred image due 2 camera movement. Flash use speeds up the shutter, but will use more battery power. Another issue: with 100 ASA film, the flash is only good for about 12 feet. Distance improves with higher ASA film, but quality suffers due to film grain.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero


Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

Evoca 115 stopped working after 22 shots


I think you have run out of film. 22 panoramic shots is the equivalent of at least 35 regular shots. Did you open the camera in a darkroom because if not you might of ruined the film. You need to try rewinding the film putting in a fresh roll and I think it should work. Hope this Helps.

Can't take pictures with my camera


If it's showing an "E", then the film is not uptaking properly, even though it may be advancing. Try reloading the film, or, if for example you're shooting Fuji film, try switching to Kodak, or another brand. Mine will show an "E" for Fuji alomost consistently, but not with Kodak.
