Also try to cover the picture right when it comes out of the camera, impossible films has an extra cover for that purpose, it a black carton that you clip on to your camera, so when the picture comes out it covers it. when the picture is out take it out right away and leave it upside down on the table or put it in your pocket so no more light touches it. let it develop slowly in the dark for about i would say 10-15 minutes.

If you are shooting with the new film from the Impossible Project, you need to turn the button which makes the photos come out light or dark all the way to the dark side. At most cameras this little button is next to the lense. It's hollow and you should be able to see a little lense inside of it. You probably took your photos with the button to the light side, which causes your photos to come out lighter (this was useful for taking photos with a dark background). I also recommend you to buy a flash for your camera. I use a Polaroid as well and I noticed how my photos didn't get overexposed when I used my flash. Odd isn't it.

My photos come out a pink-violet hue. camera is set on auto.


That is a problem with either old film or poor processing. Unless you're using a filter on your camera lens, colors like that are related to unstable film or poor/contaminated film processing.

Why is my canon ae-1 only developing blank film


First thing I would do is sacrifice a roll of film. Load the film as you have been. Then with the back open and tension on the film (do not touch the film over the shutter, advance the film. It may be that you are putting the film on the takeup spool incorrectly. Watch how the film advances on the spool. If it is on the spool incorrectly it will disconnect then not advance. If that does not work it may be a errant takeup spool.

Why is my polaroid photos coming out white?


Probably because they were exposed to light. This commonly happens when the user opens the film holder after they put it in.

Just remember to place the film inside in a dark place ONCE. After that don't take it out again otherwise they come out blank.

If this continues to happen buy a new film or take the camera to a "doctor" to check it out

This probably means that the film did not wind on to the take-up spool, so no photos were recorded. Check the results when you process it - if its completely blank, that is what has happened.

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Picture film comes out blank

Although the camera seems to be working ok, and the loading process has been checked, my daughters b&w film prints do not come out when developed, the films are new and others in her photography class...


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.

Hasselblad 500CM. Film is blank when developped.Shutters seem to work and slide is removed before shooting.


The only possibilities are that the shutter is not working when the lens is mounted on the body, that the film is being inserted incorrectly with the backing paper facing forwards, or the film processing is completely wrong.

I haven't suggested that the film isn't winding through the camera as I'm assuming that when you remove it the film has all transferred to the previously empty spool. I've also assumed that when you describe the processed film as "blank" that you mean it is completely unexposed (clear) as opposed to completely exposed and washed out (opaque).

When i took pictures at christmas i used fiji film in my camera and when i took to get processed they were all blank. could this have been the film but the kodak also did this can you help me


There are 2 things to check.

First: Put in a cheap film and just press the shutter while the back of the camera is open to see if the film is advancing.

Second: Try pressing the shutter while there is no film in the camera and the back is open to see if the shutters are working correctly.
