How to load film
The link above will take you to a .PDF that is an owners manual for the Canon Sure Shot Z135
On page 14 it lists how to load film into the camera.

1. Slide the back cover downwards
2. Insert the film
- Make sure the film is positioned above the film guide
3. Pull the film tip across until it reaches the film tip marker
- Make sure the film is flat
4. Close the back cover
5. Turn the dial to (auto)
(Turn the power on)
the camera will automatically advance the film to the first frame.
6. "1" should be displayed on the frame counter

If this show zero there has been an issue, make sure you are using the proper film for the camera

I have an old Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 100 AF camera and I am having trouble loading the film. Can you use Kodak Advantix APS film in this camera or should I be using manual loading film instead?

This camera uses 35mm film, not APS film. 35mm is a larger format, giving MUCH better results, at the expense of having to manually pull the leader across to the take-up spool each time you load a roll.

On loading a fresh film into the camera the motor winds through to the last frame ie does not stop at first frame

That's entirely correct. Your camera winds all of the film out upon loading and each shot then winds the film back into the canister. Your frame counter works in countdown mode telling you how many shots remain rather than how many you've taken.

Many other camera do the same thing. The beauty of it is twofold: if the camera back is accidentally opened, then the shots already taken are safely in the film canister (except for the last shot), also when the film has finished you wait less time for the short length remaining to be rewound rather than the entire roll.

Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Loading film into it.

You pull down on the clip on the side of the camera. That will open the back of the camera. Pull out a little of the film from the canister. Put the canister into the side with the spindle. Put the end of the film that you pulled out over the roller on the opposite side of the camera then shut the lid and turn on the camera.

History of polaroid 600 quality.

It's probably more an issue of how/where that one image was taken in relation to the others than it is an issue of the physical condition of that one photo.

Different lighting conditions can fool the in-camera light meter and cause a photo that is either too light or too dark, and this is probably that happened. Or, sometimes someone doesn't notice and their hand/finger is over the electric eye. Generally if an image is "bad", it'll be dark or non-existant on Polaroid cameras, because of the process they use.

I loaded the film but display window shows a flashing zero

Go ahead and try anyway. A ruined film is far cheaper than a useless camera or a professional repair. In any case, if the film hasn't loaded properly it will only be the first short length of film which is ruined. As this is a newly loaded film you haven't any risk of losing any undeveloped photos.

Auto spooling film systems are great when they work, but sometimes are a real pain and some cameras seem really picky about having a film leader of precisely the right length. See if you can engage the the film onto the spool manually.

Camera goes into Shut Down Mode & Flashes the Letter H

Hey sonax,
This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.
