Question about Canon EOS Rebel X 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Film fast forwards

When I put in new film it fast forwards to last frame and stops. Then I try to take a photo and it counts backward, one # per photo taken. Whenit gets back to #1, you take it out like you would normally. What is up?

This is normal operation for the Canon Rebel film cameras, they are designed to pre-wind the film so each time you take a picture the camera winds it into the film cartridge. This means if the camera has a problem or the film door gets opened by accident your pictures are safe in the canister.

If a horse its filmed during a race at 100 frames in one second, there are 100 photos of the horse, so if you played the film at 10 frames every second, how long would the film play?


You only filmed the horse for 1 second, getting 100 frames.
Playing it back at 10 frames per second would give you "slow motion" for 100 divided by 10 equals 10 seconds.

I've taken many photos so far with my Canon T70 but have no idea how many and when to stop.. i'm not counting the number of photos i've taken, haven't heard any beeping and don't know...


The maximum number of shots possible is 24 or 36 depending on the film length, although sometimes you can squeeze an extra one out of a film. If the film loaded correctly you will get a frame counter in the LCD. If the film did not load correctly, then you have not taken any photos as the film is still in the canister and unexposed.

Take the camera to a totally dark room (and I do mean absolutely pitch black) and open the camera. if you can feel the film canister and just the short leader then it didn't load and you can turn on the lights and try loading again. if there is just the canister and no film sticking out, then the film has rewound and you can turn the lights on and send the film for developing to see if the camera worked. If you feel film going from the canister right across to the take-up spool, then your film is still being used and you should close the back of the camera before turning on the lights again. The latter does not necessarily mean that your camera is OK though as it should be showing frame numbers, but it may be usable still. If after a few more shots the camera is still behaving just the same then it's got a fault.

A faulty t70 is really not worth repairing. It's complex, spares are mostly unavailable, and they are almost worthless even in perfect condition. Any of the earlier non-t-series Canon FD-mount bodies are far better and a lot more fixable. They are also usually near worthless and can be picked up free or very cheaply, but as they have less to go wrong and were designed with repairs in mind then many common faults can be fixed.

Is there a manual rewind on nikon n65?


If by manual you mean turning a crank to rewind the film, no. If you mean to do it at a point other than the end of the roll, yes.

To rewind film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for approximately one second. The film will then rewind and the frame counter will count backward. The film is completely rewound when the E appears in place of the frame number.

The two film rewind buttons are marked with a red film canister symbol with left-pointing arrows. One is the exposure compensation button next to the control panel, the other is the self-timer button next to the mode dial.

If you need a manual, you can download one from

I didnt use all of my film but i pressed the rewind button and when i turned it on the film rewond on its own. what do i do?


Nothing. You pressed the rewind button and the film rewound: it didn't do so "on its own", it just did what you told it to.

Get it developed and put another film in and don't make the same mistake twice.

You can buy a film leader retriever which fishes out the end of the film from the canister enabling you to reload it, but you need to remember exactly which frame you were at. To get it back to the correct position you then set the camera to fully manual and using the fastest shutter speed and smallest aperture, leave the lens cap on and cover the viewfinder and away from bright light you fire the shutter until the counter reads one lower than you were last at (if your frame counter counts down to zero shots remaining). If the subsequent shots don't register exactly with the old shots, the automatic film processing machinery will likely cut into some frames when cutting the negs into strips. You'll also find that a leader retriever costs more than another roll of film and can take some skill to use.

In summary, your Minolta 7000 is behaving exactly as designed and the cheapest fix is to just drop in a new roll of film.

Camera does not rewind after end of film it spins, but does not engage the film. Joe M.


it is likely that this model of camera spins the entire roll onto the take-up spool, and then slowly rewinds one frame at a time until the last picture is taken. Then it has already almost rewound,

This shows up when you load the film. The cameras digital counter counts up to the number of pictures available, and counts downward each picture taken.

Can't advance film, press shutter, no result


Do you have film in the camera? If so, is it an old film or you have just loaded it?
If it's an old film, could it be at the end of the roll - to check this, 'lightly' turn the rewind lever backwards and forwards. As the camera is pointing away from you, turning the rewind knob clockwise will normally rewind the film (don't press the rewind button in, we don't actually want to rewind the film yet), turning the knob clockwise should be tight and a firm stop, if the film is at the end, you will feel the same tight firm stop if you turn it counter-clockwise. Don't turn the rewind knob backwards (counter-clockwise) too hard, you'll unscrew it and it may fall apart. If turning it backwards rolls freely in a full circle, then you have film left.
Another option is that, since it's been so long since you used it, the loading of the film may have gone amis and sometimes the cassette will flip backwards, jamming the film in place so it wont advance - if you have loaded the film and not taken any pics or have not been able to advance it at all, it should be safe to open the back as the film will be in it's original loading position, if you have left the film in it from some time and don't know what stage it's up to it may be best to take it to a camera store where they will have a "Black Bag" to put the camera in and manually open and unload the film. Make sure you get an experienced person - some pimply-face teen that's never used a film camera can easily put their fingers through the shutter while it's in the black bag - I've seen it plenty of times.
OK, that's enough to get started, did this work or do we need to try more options?

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.

Pentax MZ 50 film winding problem


Well, I'm not a camera repairman, but it sounds to me (and probably to you too) that the electronics are damaged or perhaps there's dust in the contacts inside. I also have an MZ-50. There's so many electronics involved and they don't age so gracefully. I would consider buying another one off eBay or you can get a ZX-30 (same as MZ-30) for $75 from Blue Moon Camera & Machine with a 1 year warranty (parts and labor). The best way would be, in my opinion, to get a manual, mechanical camera from the 1970s and put a good lens on it. Those seem to last forever. No electronics to worry about. Advance and rewind the film manually. You can use a digital camera as a light meter to set the aperture and shutter speed. I'm thinking of going this route when my MZ-50 finally conks out.
