Question about Leica C1 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

LEICA C1 Leica AF C-!. Yes, I know it's not really a Leica, BUT........... On inserting film the film symbol comes on as does 0. Then 0 flashes, but the film is correctly inserted. NO battery symbol shows. Does that mean battery is OK or exhausted on this camera? Any help appreciated. Thanks, Richard

if you check the operation for spliting to a photo tube. PG 49 you can see the procedure for using a camera (there is a control pin on the side of the scope (shown on pg 49) which you have to operate to switch to the camera output... you should then be able to take your photos :) http://www.vashaw.com/assets/84/84original.pdf

I don't have a C1, but in all probability it's the EV (exposure value) compensation adjustment, and should be variable between about +2 and -2. Usually the middle/zero/auto/normal (whatever they call it) setting is fine, but sometimes you want to overrule your automatic exposure settings, which are intended for an average-brightness scene. For example, a photo of a dazzling white snow-covered field will probably come out a soft, easy-on-the-eyes light gray unless you kick up the exposure a notch or two. Try taking your camera to an unusually bright/dim location (a beach, inside an old church) and take the same shot five times, with EVs from -2 through 0 to +2. Then look at the resulting photos and decide whether the effects are pleasing/useful or not (warning--sometimes automatic photo processors will try to reset the picture to average when they print the photo, so you may still end up with minimal differences in the shots). A good beginner-level explanation of EV compensation is at <http://www.imaging-resource.com/ARTS/EVCOMP/EVCOMP.HTM>.

Good luck!

SOURCE: leica m2 film advance lever is stuck

mandie22,
on this model two strokes are needed to fully advance the film and to set the counter to the next #,
so advance the lever, bring it back and advance again.

hi,
your camera needs cleaning of lens and lens shutter; because some time dust particles gose inside and effect the alignment of lens and cause camera not working.

please give me good rating if the solution works

I would like to know what type of film, which speed of film I need to use in a Canon AF.7s please.


The film you need is depend also for the particular occasion you gonna use your camera. If you gonna shoot on sports arena where there is a lot of action, you need a high speed film say "ISO 500" film and those type of film depends on the availability of brand of film in your area or country. Try to canvass in your local photo supply in your area. I hope this advice help you.

What film do you use for a canon af-7s


The Sure Shot AF-7 is a 35mm camera. That means it uses 35mm film (sometimes known as size 135). You can use black&white film or color film, either slides or negatives (for prints).
You may download a copy of the manual here.

Just found one at a swap meet, cheap. the lens will not close or open...is it worth fixing? Can I work on it? How much is an average repair on this model?


Not many of these were made, and they certainly weren't up to Leica's usual standards. Not at all bad, but certainly no better and possibly slightly worse than comparable high quality compacts from the likes of Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta and Olympus.
Spares are difficult to obtain independently although it's quite possible that the Leica repair centre in Germany may be able to fix your camera. There is no such thing as an "average repair" cost for your model as so few of them come up for repair. If it was a regular mainstream model you'd be looking at around £120 for the lens assembly plus labour costs, but that assumes that it's just the lens assembly and ignores the fact that Leica's optical components are always very expensive to replace.

However, repairs are likely to cost far more than the camera is worth. It's not particularly sought after by collectors, but you're still likely to make a tidy profit if you bought cheaply enough if you list it on an auction website as a spares or repairs example. There are enough uninformed speculators out there who will think that they're getting an easily repairable bargain.

If you want a comparable model (in my opinion superior in every way) then look out for the hugely under-appreciated Canon Sureshot 120 Classic. It's absolutely superb and has one of the best lenses I've ever had on any 35mm compact camera; exposure is outstanding as well and it has spot metering as well. Watch out though, as the word is slowly getting around about them, but until recently they went for around £5 to £15 in absolutely perfect condition.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea
