Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
I inherited a ME Super SE 35mm Pentax camera, and I do not know how to load film properly without ruining it. I am new at this and this camera means alot to me. Please help, Thank you. =)
The "magic needles" while making the camera easy to load are about as intuitive as a dead skunk, I had a similar confusion when I got an ME Super. Put the film can in the left side of the camera back (the side with the little thing sticking out is the bottom, it looks upside down this way, but that is correct). Next push the film winder down, this will semi-lock the can into place. Now pull the film-lead across the camera and push it down between some of the white "magic needles on the opposite spool(push it in a bit so that it will stay). Next advance the lever; release the shutter. If the spool starts to turn you are doing it right. Now close the door and continue advancing and clicking until the little frame number window on top reads 1.

I found this site. Someone has scanned in the user manual for the Pentax ME Super and put it on-line.
Here is the link.
Hope this helps!
Take care & Happy Imaging!
