Bad film or Camera.

March 29,2008 I bought a Polaroid pz1710 35 mm. camera with a roll of Kodak Ultra max 24 exp.For Our Granddaughters wedding and as we were taking the pictures the camera locked up and wouldn't do anything no winding no nothing, we don't know if any pictures were gotten or not, maybe a few at the beginning but when the wedding started here she came down the isle DEAD Camera. I was so Mad I wanted to through the thing everyone tried to help and the camera was opened so there may not be anything on it now, after the wedding was over we took out the film and put in a roll of Fuji film I had and I tried it and so far the camera is working jut fine but we are still taking pics.and so I have-nt gotten any pics. yet. But what do i do now take a chance and spend money to get a roll of film developed that may or have anything on them or just toss it. I don't know what to do. Thanks D.Legg (memalegg2@verizon.net)

Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.

Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.

Cannot find film for our Canon ELPH JR. Stores tell us they no longer carry this film and think it may not even be made anymore. We need 24 mm film..400 25 exp. DH IX240 DXIX ADVANCED PHOTO...


Your camera is an APS film camera. The cameras are obsolete now as APS was a short-lived format, but you can still get film for them quite easily.

My cameras advance lever will not spring back and allow the film to move to the next frame. How do i fix it?


push the film release on the bottom of the camera and try to continue forward then. If you are trying to get 27 pictures on a 24 exp. roll you may have advanced your film so far that it is stuck on the piece of tape that attaches the film to the spool. Take only 24 pictures.

Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture


Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck

2 rolls out of a 3-pack ruined.


I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.

Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time.

My camera won't load film


Set your lens to the smallest aperture ( largest number on lens ) f/22 or f/32 and lock it in place with the small latch on the aperture ring. The camera won't operate in auto modes without the lens set there.

Problem in camera or film roll??


Hey msenile,
It is possible that each frame would have image data imprinted without and image being exposed. This could be caused by the shutter not opening while the camera still exposing the film internally with the image data recorded. It is unlikely that this bad film since the emulsion covers the entire surface of the film and if it were bad the image data would not be recorded either. Another cause of this but very unlikely is every frame was somehow extremely underexposed. This could happen if the camera is set to manual and the light level is low and the shutter speed is set to a fast speed and the aperture is set to a very small aperture. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right...


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only lose the last frames if the roll is indeed a 24 exp.
