If you email them and threaten to complain to CVS about their poor customer service they will send you an email. They are not even in this country. Had I known that before sending my film off I would of tried another option. They advertise 10-14 days delivery. I have never received my pictures. I do get an email from someone about once a week telling me they are shipping them express mail and blaming our Postal Service. Good Luck

SOURCE: what type of type of 120 film should i use in my

You can use any 120 film in your Ansco. The ideal choice will depend on your intended use. As the selection of such film is dwindling, you may find your choice largely made by what is available.The manual for your camera is available at < http://www.cameramanuals.org/agfa_ansco/ansco_titan_20.pdf>. You will need a light meter, or be willing to learn how to estimate exposure. Google for "sunny 16" which is an old rule of thumb asserting that you can set the shutter speed to the film ISO number and the aperture to F16 for photos in direct sun.

SOURCE: Although the camera seems to be working ok, and

The F90x is like many other automatic winding SLR's in that it winds film back into the cassette as the film is exposed rather than by pulling the film out (which then has to be manually rewound back into the cassette after the final exposure).

So if the developed films are coming back totally blank (i.e. clear, apart from pre-imprinted information such as frame numbers and film edge markings) it can only mean that the film has not been exposed. This will happen if the film was not initially wound out of the cassette at all or if the shutter mechanism is not exposing the film. In the first instance, there will be a blackened frame or two at the start of the film after the initial darkened film leader, where the same frame has been exposed repeatedly. But if this fault occurs then it also shows up as the film does not get wound back into the cassette with each new exposure. I therefore strongly suspect that the shutter assembly is faulty and it's not an uncommon fault.

The official fix is to replace the shutter assembly, but it's not cheap to buy and labour is also expensive and on some models the parts can be difficult to obtain (I haven't repaired an F90 for a while, so don't know one way or the other). In reality, repair costs far outweigh the cost of the camera so it's better to consign the F90 to be cannibalised for spare parts and to obtain a suitable replacement model.

Both autofocus and earlier manual focus Nikons can be easily obtained for free or peanuts on FreeCycle/Freegle or on auction websites.

SOURCE: how to open the film compartment to an ansco memar pronto camera

If you look on the left side (held up like you're taking a picture), there's a strip that's black and silver. On the bottom of the strip is a really small, very hard to see tab that kind of blends in with the strip- push down on it with a fingernail and the back should pop open. Not sure about the one without the Pronto, though.

Step by step guide for rolling a film reel for developing


Rolling film on a metal reel can be very challenging and for years I avoided using these reels in favor of the plastic ones with the large lip for leading the negative around the reel. Over the last year or so I have been working on getting around this fear of not being able to roll the film.

The first and most important thing that you have to make sure is that when you cut off the "L" shaped piece make sure that you cut the film between the sprocket holes. Those first few holes are crucial for the ability to successfully loading the film on to the reel.

On the center post of the reel there are two very small hooks that you want the negative to hook on to using those sprocket holes. These hooks work to make sure that the film stays put while you roll and throughout the development process.

Once the film is hooked on you are going to slowly turn the reel around and around holding the unrolled film on the sides. Make sure to hold on the sides because you don't want your fingers to scratch the very sensitive negative.

If you practice in the light with dead rolls of film you can check if you rolled well by holding up the roll and looking though. If you can see between the rounds of film then you have done a good job. It is important that the film be rolled smoothly because if parts are touching then the chemicals can't get in and the film will not develop properly. Once you have mastered rolling this way in the light take some time to roll a dead roll of film in the dark before you get to the real stuff (no pun intended).

I just got a vintage camera. It's called an Ansco Memar. The full name may be "Ansco Memar Pronto." I didn't receive a manual with it. HOW CAN I open the little compartment where the film goes?


If you look on the left side (held up like you're taking a picture), there's a strip that's black and silver. On the bottom of the strip is a really small, very hard to see tab that kind of blends in with the strip- push down on it with a fingernail and the back should pop open.

I am having CANON Camera SURE SHOT 80 Tele. Whenever i start camera there is one msg which only shows H and stop working further. What can i do now..


There are two conditions under which a blinking "H" will appear in the
LCD panel: (1) when the film has been loaded incorrectly or (2) when the
camera's self-test process detects an internal malfunction. If a
blinking "H" indication appears, perform the following operations in
attempt to resolve the situation:

1. Rewind and remove the film using the rewind button, then remove the
battery to clear the memory.

2. Clean the contacts at the base of the battery compartment with a
clean pencil eraser to ensure proper contact between the camera and
battery.

3. Replace the battery, power the camera back up and operate it as if
it had film loaded, pressing the shutter release.

If the "H" display stops blinking, the problem is corrected and you can
continue using the camera normally. If the blinking does not stop, or
if it subsequently returns, the camera should be examined by an
authorized Canon service facility.

For factory service, please forward your camera to the Factory Service
Center shown below. When shipping your camera, please be sure to remove
the film (if possible) and batteries. You are not required to send any
accessories or manuals when shipping the camera. Be sure to include
your name, street address (no P.O. boxes, please), telephone number, and
a letter describing the issue with the product. If it has been less
than one year since the camera was purchased, we ask that you also
include proof of warranty in the form of a copy of your sales receipt.

As we do not provide RMA numbers for service, we suggest using a
traceable and insurable service (i.e. UPS, Federal Express, Priority
Mail) to ship your camera. Please package the camera very securely in a
sturdy shipping box to prevent damage during shipment.

Please send your camera to the following Factory Service Center:

Canon Factory Service
1440 Chase Ave.
Elk Grove Village, IL 60007

Telephone: (800) 828-4040
Business Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight ET, and
Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET (excluding holidays)

Upon arrival at the Factory Service Center, your camera will be logged
in to our repair database and assigned a repair number. Next, the
camera will be examined and you will be advised of the findings. If the
required repairs are covered by the warranty, the repairs will begin
immediately. When the repairs are complete, the camera will be shipped
back to you via Federal Express or UPS.

The length of time for the repair will be dependent upon the nature of
the repair and availability of parts, if needed. Usually, warranted
repairs are completed within approximately ten to fourteen business days
of the camera's arrival at the Factory Service Center. Please be
assured that your camera will be returned as soon as possible. We
appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

All decisions regarding warranty coverage are made by the Factory
Service Center at the time of repair. If the repair entails something
that is not covered in warranty, or if the camera is out of warranty, a
written estimate will be sent to you at the address that you have
provided. The repairs to your camera will not begin until you approve
this estimate and make payment arrangements. If, after receiving the
estimate, you do not wish to have the camera repaired, please inform the
Factory Service Center of your decision as soon as possible. If you
decline the estimate, the camera will be shipped back to you
un-repaired.

Once you have confirmed with your shipper that the camera has been
delivered, you are more than welcome to contact us for repair updates.
Please include your name, address, and telephone number, as well as the
serial number of the camera, in all repair status inquiries. If you
prefer to contact us by phone, please see the above contact information.
