Question about Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera
I just purchased a Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ for a photography class I'm taking at the local university. When I load the film (as per the instruction manual), close the camera up and turn the camera on, it starts to load the film--and then it automatically starts rewinding the film back into the cannister.
I've never owned a 35mm camera before, so I have no idea if I'm doing something wrong or what. I'm not pushing any buttons other than the ''on'' button. I have no idea why it loads the film to the beginning and then rewinds it, but I'd appreciate any tips or advice on how to fix the problem.
Not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!
