Pictures did not take-negatives were clear

I just recently went to pick up my pictures and none of 8 rolls took. all the negatives were clear. I did a test to see if the film was advancing by sacrificing a roll of fil and it was. What could cause this problem to happen? Lesson leraned--develop your pictures as you take them so you an catch a problem early on. Tim

I have a Nikon D 60. I just took a series of pictures, however when I went to preview them, none of them were there. I've checked the memory card, battery is charged, and setting was on Auto. What


The question is not clear. First you should check image shot count is changing when you press shutter button completely. If the shot count number changing, then your camera is functioning. But the shot count number is not changing then you have several possible problem cause! It could be main PCB, SD memory card, or CMOS control unit. Please give more detail of the problem.

Tip

Organize negatives for easy access


Over the years I have accumulated an astounding number of pictures and rolls of negatives. They were scattered all over the house in numerous boxes and albums that it started to get out of hand. A few weeks ago I decided to organize my collection of memories into something more together than scattered boxes. I have found that sorting developed pictures was really easy because you just put them all in albums and the problem of organization is solved, negatives on the other hand are a little more complicated.

Like developed pictures you have to protect your negatives from water, but they are also sensitive to dust and hands touching them. Since they can get easily scratched up you have to store them somewhere they won't get played with. You also have to keep them flat because if they get rolled up or folded they will be hard to use or even impossible to make more prints of the images on them.

What you want to do is get some clear plastic negative sleeves. A sleeve can hold an entire roll of 24 exposures so you can store a whole roll together. If you were some what organized before we started you should have information about the rolls of film like when they were taken and where. Using a pen or a sharpie you can lable the negatives for easy access.

Then all you need is a 3 ring binder to store all your negative sleeves in. If you want to get reallly organized you can even create a system of organization for your ablums so you can label the sleeves with the album information so you can easily find the corsponding prints.

The time that is takes to organize your library of photos depends on how many you have to begin with and how organized you were to begin with. I have been working on this for two weeks now and am almost finished!

Canon EOS Rebel S taking bad pictures


Your camera has a faulty shutter or shutter timer.

Given that you can buy a perfectly good Rebel S for anywhere between £1 to £25 on Ebay it's not economical to repair it.

2 rolls out of a 3-pack ruined.


I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.

Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time.

My negatives are turning out clear.


"Clear" = no exposure, right? Two possibilities: light not getting in; or film not advancing. To check the former, take a "picture" with the camera open at the back. See the light through the lens? Yes = OK, No = there is a problem with the shutter. Most likely the film is not advancing. Here's a test. Load the camera with a roll of film and take one picture. Open the camera and see if film moved. If not, go read the manual to make sure you are loading it properly.
