Question about Photography
A accidentally hit the button to take picture whilst there was no film in the camera, and now I can't see anything. When I hold my eye into the viewfinder, i see nothing! Did I ruin my camera? Please help.
You don't state the make and model of your camera, but what you've described is typical of what happens on many SLR cameras which rely on batteries to operate.
If you replace the batteries you should find that the fault clears. Leaving the camera in this state for longer than necessary can cause the shutter magnets to stick though so don't delay.
Please return the favour by rating my answer, but wait until after you've replaced the battery. If new batteries don't resolve your problem then please add a comment to your question including the exact make and model and I or others will try to give a model specific resolution to your problem.
