Question about Lomo Photography
Hello there, I have a supersampler and have just developed 2 rolls. Both rolls seem to have the same problem -a lot of unexposed film between pictures (sometimes 5-6 inch gaps) causing me to only be able to get 10 or less pictures per roll. Is this a problem with the advancing mechanism, the way I'm loading the film, the way I'm advancing the film, or something else entirely? Thanks ever so much!

SOURCE: Film won't advance
Perhaps you've already solved the mystery. There are 2 parts to the back of that camera, the film back + the part that it slips onto. And they have little safety latches/pins that couple in order to advance the film & release the shutter. I'm sure those just aren't in the right place. Here in Los Angeles you could take it to any major camera store or repair shop & they've help you out.

Hi, check the camera set in auto /manually in auto function, check battery might drain the current , dis engage camera to lense to release the mirror by pressing button beside lense , turn lense in left or right .

you most likely broke the tab off the rewind shaft or striped a gear. there are no new parts for this camera, so if you think you can do it buy another ME for parts ( not working do to electronics ) and replace the needed parts. study the mechanism after the top and bottom cover is off the parts camera.

SOURCE: 35mm film developed with streaks
I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.
