Question about Samsung Instant Cameras

1 Answer

Samsung Maxima 105 zoom

No manual. The settings seem to work or at least you can step through them. It has three buttons SET MODE and FLASH that have no explaination of what they do. set seems to do nothing. Once the film is placed in the camera, it advances to 1 exp and the shutter does not work although it works during dry firing. It advances film, the lens cover works and the zoom works, Just no shutter. Open the back and when you close it the film advances again but the shutter will not fire. Is this an easy repair or a hopeless one.

    The camera cost me less than three dollars along with several other cameras which I purchased at a flea market. There is no sense in using the plan you offer when I can replace the camera after taking it apart and learning what I can from it. It is a cheap education. Apparently your site offers no solutions without the payment so I learned even more. Thanks for the continuing education.

I have the manual. I'll scan it for you & email it. My problem is that the manual doesn't identify the batteries & I lost the ones I'd removed for storage.

How doI set up f11 on this camera

Do you mean set the aperture at f/11?

If you want the camera to set the shutter speed for proper exposure, turn the mode dial to the A position for Aperture Priority. Press the +/- button to display the shutter speed and aperture. Press cursor-up/down to change the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to give the proper exposure.

If you want to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself, turn the mode dial to M for Manual. Press the +/- button. Press cursor-up/down to set the shutter speed, cursor-left/right to set the aperture.

Full details are in the Shooting Mode section of the manual.

Cant find the zoom button on my samsung PL221 10 x

That's because it's not a button. It's the ring around the shutter release button. There's a little grip at the front of the ring. Push it one way to zoom out, the other way to zoom in. See the illustration on page 13 of the manual.

We put the new battery in our Canon Prima Super 105 38-105mm zoom lens camera and the top window next to the on/off button flashes H. The camera doesn't work. What is wrong?

since there is only one battery (CR123) (not one to back up the clock) .. i am wondering if its not waiting for you to set the clock .. "H" might be asking you to set hours ..

for what its worth here is a nice catalog in PDF .. it shows all parts and an exploded view and dissassembly .for your camera

The flash is not openning

The flash may be set on "Suppressed" - meaning there will be no flash. On the back, by your right thumb, there is a round button. It's the ring around the MENU button. On the right of this you'll see a symbol which looks like a lightning bolt - (Flash). Turn on the power. Push down on the right side of this ring type button, towards the lightning bolt. Everytime you push, it sets the flash for a different mode. Try changing the flash mode and see if it doesn't fix your issue.

N75/ fEE

The camera requires you to set your lens aperture at the minimum setting, usually orange coloured. I.E. f22 f32. Nikons control the aperture through the camera, not setting the ring manually like old style SLR's
