My Nikon N60 wont load film. I load the film but it doesnt wind the film, but when i take a picture it rewinds it. I dont know what im doing wrong


Hi. Pay careful attention to the way the end of the film fits through the take-up reel. Open the back (empty) and give the wind knob a few twists. That will tell you which way it is turning. Put the end of your film through the slot in the take-up reel so itd winds onto itself as it advances. There's usually enough extra unexposed wound onto the factory reel that it won't cost you and pix at the end of it. Pull enough out of the cassette to be sure your winding-load position is really going to hold when you advance. Good luck.

What reel goes in a digital camera

Film stuck in on right hand side


First, be sure you've pushed the film release button (usually located on the bottom of older film cameras) and then try rewinding. If the film is stuck on the take-up reel of your camera your best bet is to manually unwind the film from the reel and see if it will work properly again. If not then it wasn't a film problem but a mechanical one on the reel.

Film is not winding on fully


Possible that the loading motor is having friction to load fully or that the film reel is too tight.
You can check the test without the film in place but by activation of the door switch.
If the reel pressure is good ,then the film reel might be badd or if the hand pressure stops the reel then the motor might be weak.
Hope the battery is charged. if not used recently let it run winding up to free.

Loaded film blank


Chances are the film had quite a bit of curl to it (often a sign of old film) and it was not pulled over quite far enough during auto loading, or perhaps too far and it had too much slack that the take up reel never grabbed it to advance it thru. You're not the first one this has happened to as the auto load is not as reliable as the older style where you had to load the film leader through a slot in the take up reel.

Unloading my medium format camera


If i remember correctly there should be a button on the bottom of the camera opposite side of the film winder if you press that button it will release the tension on the film and allow you to reel the film back into the film canistor.BE CAREFUL when reeling it back in because you can reel the whole roll back into the film canistor, when you think your getting towards the end go SLOW you will feal the reel loosen up alot.that means that the film has let go of the other side STOP and you can open the case without exposong your film.GOOD LUCK if this helps rate me or leave some more info.Thanks.

Turn it on


Actually, you don't have to "turn on" the Vivitar V3800N. Just be sure it has working batteries in it (takes two small alkaline button cells, unscrew the cover on the bottom with a coin--put new cells into the holder with the + side up). If the batteries are working, when you press the shutter button halfway down, you should see an LED light up in the right side of the viewfinder. This is the readout for the exposure meter: a red + indicates overexposure, red - is underexposure, a green dot means you've got the exposure correctly set. You just change the shutter and aperture settings until you get the green light, then shoot. When you load film, you also need to set the ISO film speed setting. Pull up on the outside ring of the shutter speed dial and turn it until the number in the window is the same as the ISO number on the film you are using. The batteries, by the way, only power the exposure meter. The shutter is fully mechanical (just like in the good old days), so you can use the camera without batteries if you have a separate exposure meter, or if you can estimate exposure. Film loading is about like any other 35mm manual camera: pull up on the rewind knob to open the back; insert the new cassette of film on the left and pull the film leader out a couple inches and hook the film to the takeup reel on the right. Move the film advance lever a bit to be sure the film is firmly hooked onto the reel, then close the back. Wind and shoot three shots to get the exposed film leader out of the way, and then start shooting. When the film is finished, press in the rewind button on the bottom of the camera and rewind the film into the cassette before opening the back of the camera. Good luck--these are pretty good little cameras. We buy a lot of them for the photography program where I teach, and I've only ever had one with a problem (meter was bad). The lenses are quite good, and they are "K-mount," which means that any Pentax bayonet lens, and gazillions of others with this mount, will all fit. --Michael R. Sawdey

Loaded film wrong??


I'm assuming you're not able to shoot pics. Its my best guess that the film just isn't getting loaded properly. Next time you attempt to load film there maybe a small red mark near the take spool (bottom edge where film goes) to indicate how far you need to pull the leader forward toward take up spool. I think the film isn't out quite far enough for the camera to do its auto load thing & when you close the back it goes thru its auto loading motions but the film just isn't getting loaded. Then close back & see what happens.
