Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I purchased the Holga Starter Kit, which came with a roll of medium format 120 film. However, the film roll does not specify what processing it needs: C-41, D-76, etc. Do you know what film type the kit includes so I can give my processor an answer to develop my film?

If it's color negative film it will be a c41 process film. That's just about all there is!

Where can I get Kodak 620 films developed??


I would take the film to a custom processing lab; that is where professionals take film. The only difference between 620, which is no longer used, and 120 is the spool that the film is wound on. A custom lab can remove the film from the spool by hand and process it for you. It will be more expensive than you normally pay for processing. You can save money by having them develop the negatives only and then taking the negatives to a low cost lab for machine printing or they can make professional quality prints for you at a cost, of course.

How to format the GE X500 Digital Camera


The camera has less than 14MB of internal memory. At its finest resolution three pictures is about all that will fit in there. You really do need a memory card, just as you would have needed film for an analog camera. The main difference is that you need only one memory card, instead of having to buy roll after roll of film. Even the smallest memory card you're likely to find will hold hundreds of pictures, and you can easily download them to a computer and reuse the memory card.

Lost the battery plug for a mamiya 1000s camera. It is a threaded plug.


Nice camera! Do you mean the battery housing cover plate? It should swing open like a small door when you press the cover latch.

If you are referring to the circular threaded hole on the bottom of the camera body, it is actually the attachment point for a tripod mounting plate. Mounting the camera is optional- no need to have anything screwed in here. Load film, load battery, advance film with the crank arm, and shoot away! Have fun.

Here's a link to the user manual with illustrations:

What type of film is best for the canon elan 7e, I just purchased this camera and it is my first real 35mm camera, I want nice pictures but don't want to pay out the nose for film, what is the best type of...


The first thing to decide is what sort of pictures do you want to end up with; black and white prints, colour prints, or colour transparencies. Then, in what format do you want to keep them; in negatives in storage, in digital format, or as prints in an album or book. If b/w and as prints, the best film to start with is Ilford either FP4 medium speed or HP5 higher speed. If colour print then Fuji or Kodak 100 ASA film. To get started really cheaply there are loads of these types of films available on ebay listed under Lomography, mostly out of date films, but they will work fine to get you started. Keep in the fridge as soon as you get them, but let them warm up before you load or shoot them. Supermarkets will develop only colour C41 process. I think a few will still scan to CD for you. If not buy a negative scanner, then you can print your own without a darkroom. For fine grain go to slower film speed (50 ASA), for higher speed you will get more grain.
Best thing of all is to process b/w yourself. Anything else just email me david@dtmpower.com Bye

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images


You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

I may have loaded film roll that has already been taken?


Usually when you finish exposing a roll of film, you rewind it until you are sure it is all wound into the cassette. There is a change in the sound as the end of the roll leaves the camera. An exposed roll would have no film sticking out of the cassette. A new unexposed roll will have a bit of film sticking out of the cassette to pull across the ack to the take up roll.

Film Loading Error


This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right...


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only lose the last frames if the roll is indeed a 24 exp.
