Question about Ansco Photography
Posted by Anonymous on
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

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.

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.

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.
