The film did not automatically rewind after the last shot. How do I get the film to reqidn without exposing it and losing pictures.


You'll have to do it manually. Take the camera into a totally dark and lightproof room: if you can see anything at all in the darkness then it's not dark enough.

Open the camera back and remove the film can. Wearing clean lint free gloves, gently but firmly pull on the film to slowly unwind it from the take up spool, as you do so turn the spigot on the film can to wind it back in.

Note that on a manual wind camera, you would have been able to press a rewind button to disengage the film take up sprocket gears, but on your you can't. If the film seems at risk of tearing then try pulling it out at a right angle to the back of the camera. This ensures that you're not pulling it back over the sprockets and it should then come out quite easily. If your film is likely to contain important and irreplaceable images then you may wish to buy 12 or 24 exposure cheap film and borrow another 35mm camera to practice the method I've recommended in the light where you can see what you're doing.

The rewind button on my diana camera is stuck OUT - as well as that I can't rewind my film as the rewind lever is stuck - can you please help?


Take your camera to photo developer who has the dark room. They will open your camera in dark room and remove the film without any damage to it. Once film is out you can see whats actually the problem, it can be gear tooth misaligned or something.

EOS 30 how to remove film from camera, as camera is dead no reaction to new batteries


The easy way is to use a film changing bag, if you don't have one follow the instructions below:

You need to get the film out manually. In a darkened room, just a very small/dim lamp, or door open where the light is in the next room.

First check where the lever/switch is for opening the camera, remember where it is. Then put the camera under some jackets/blankets to protect it form any light. Put your arms under the covering keeping them flat with the surface so no light can seep in.

Open the camera by feel then pull out the film canister and start winding the film back into the canister manually by turning the canister spindle, always keeping the camera and film and hands/arms protected from light under the covers. You might have to tug a bit on the film to get it from the take-up spool inside the camera.

Some cameras have a button on the outside underneath the take-up spool, which you press to release the spool, I doubt that your camera has this because it is auto winding & rewinding?

Film has not rewound but has 'reverted' to showing


On the toplate of the camera, to the left hand side, is a button which slides to the left. It is marked with a film cassette outline, and two arrows to the left <| <|

At any time, you can use this button to rewind the film back into the cannister. It should make a whirring noise for 5-10 seconds, and will stop automatically.

If it makes no noise, you may have a flat battery, or the film may already be rewound.

You can insert new power (battery) without affecting the film cassette, if need be.

However, if really unsure, then:
1) Slide the rewind button to rewind(i.e. to the left).
2) Familiarise yourself with where the back opening latch is.
3) Go into a pitch black room. Preferably under a quilt in a pitch black room.
4) Open the back and take out the cassette. If it comes freely, its probably fully rewound. If its still attached to the take-up spool by film, then (holding the film by the edge only) pull on the film to release it slowly from the take up spool. Whilst it can be quite a tug, they are designed to let go of it "under protest". (Do not pull it so hard that you strip the gears, but fairly firmly).
5) Using the spool winder on the top of the cassette, wind the trailing film back into the cannister. If you've never seen a 35mm cassette, then in the dark one end has an elevated round part, the other end has a void into the cassette. You can tell the elevated part, and start winding - it should only wind one way and feel like its winding onto the reel (wind the other way and it feels like its unwinding - even in the dark!)
6) Only when you are sure film is in the cannister, can you turn on the light.

Films are very sensitive to light, so if you do not feel comfortable doing this procedure in total darkness, go to a photo processing store who will do this for you, usually for no charge (other than the hope you'll let them process the film). They put your camera in a sort of black pillowslip, but the procedure is the same.

Hope this helps

35mm film broke rewinding in camera


Take the camera with the film still inside to a reputable business that develops and prints pictures. The usually have a means of retreiving the film with out futher damage. If you want to do this yourself, you will need a place that is totally dark. You will also need something that is totally light tight. A solid plastic film canister may be sufficient. Take your camera into the "dark room" , open the back and gently try and release the film avoiding as much as possible only touching the edges of the film. You can turn the lights on once you have the film inside the light tight canister.

35mm manual SLR keeps taking photos even though it must be the end of the film?


You probably didn't get the film leader caught by the takeup spool - they might be no pictures taken at all. Go into a dark room and open the back, you can feel if the film is loaded.

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.

Film stuck in camera


First, replace the batteries, turn on the camera and try again. If that dose not work, you need to take the camera into a darkroom, a room that is 100% totally dark. The slightest light leak could fog your film. If you do not have a room in your house that you can make light tight during daylight, try doing this at night, Once you are in the darkroom, you will need to work by feel. Open the camera back and feel for the film magazine. If there is no film protruding, you are ok and can turn on the lights. If not, you need to pop the magazine out and use the protruding knob on the end to manually wind the film into the magazine while you alternately pull the film off the take-up spindle. Once all the film is in the magazine, you can turn on the lights.

Film advance


First make sure that the leading edge of the film is aligned with the red mark ( close to the pick- up spool ). If this is not your problem then you will have to take your camera in probably because it looks like the spool motor is not turning the pick up spool.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?


Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
