Question about Digital Cameras

Open Question

It has a Minolta 'A' right on top of it. It's made from all stainless steel with a maual winder on the Right Top and another knob to get the film started on the other side of the top. Right in the CENTER FRONT of it there is a black plastic roller knob that has numbers that go from B then there is a screw and then it has white numbers that go from 1 through 300. Right behind that black roller knob it has Minolta 'A' etched into the metal. Right behind that on the top is a place for the flash attachment to slide into 2 grooved brackets about 1/8 of an inch wide with a button or stud in the center. The front of the camera has a switch on the RIGHT side of the lense if you're holding the camera with an M at the top and an X at the bottom. Then it is raised a little bit with a series of numbers on a plate in front of the switch that has numbers with a mark right at each one and the numbers range from 11, 5.6 , 3.5 then it has like a little arrowhead then it has an R in red ink (or paint) with 5.6 right next to the R then it has 11 again. The front outside ring adjustment has OPTIER MX with a serrated tab sticking forward. Around the outside ring with the serrated tab it has the numbers in feet and they go in sequence 2.7 , 3.33 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 10 , 15 (with a circle around it, then 30 and then the infinity sign. The inside ring closest to the lense it has the words ROKKOR 3.5/45 THEN 1201049, then it has CHIYOKO. The top and the front of the camera around all of the adjustments is Stainless Steel colored but the rounded sides and back are a rough BLACK color. The Bottom has a dial you have to turn with your fingernail that has numbers that range from 0 then 5 little marks and a 5 then five little marks then 10 and five little marks then 15 and so on up to 35. You can just keep turning it round and round without anything unscrewing even though it has a screw slot in the center. There is another button on the bottom that doesn't appear to do anything but it is spring loaded and always comes back to dead center if you press on it. The other side of the bottom has what looks to be a screw hole so you can mount the camera on some kind of stand. It has a very nice brown leather case that snaps around the entire camera too. If you have any idea where I can get some information on this camera and what it's worth please let me know.

SOURCE: Door latch opens and shuts off the camera on my S2 Pro Fuji FineP

I also own a Fuji Fine Pic Pro (mine is a S3). If there are no authorized dealers around you that can fix your camera I would send it in. Here is a link to send it to Fuji. Send it Priority mail and siginature confirmation. It will cost a little more to do this but it will insure that you know who signed for your camera. Also insure it. Hope this helps.

I own a Minolta 7000 series that was given to me. I do not have the manual for it. On the front of the camera it also says AF. My question is, how do I rewind the film and take it out of my camera. ...


If it's a Minolta Maxxum 7000, it should automatically rewind the film when finished with the roll. To manually rewind the film, open the card door on the right side of the camera and press the rewind button. Open the back cover by pressing the button in the center of the back-cover release and sliding the release downward.

You can download the manual from

How to unload nikon fg 35 mm film


When the last exposure is made, the film advance lever will not move the film to allow another picture to be taken. Turn the camera upside-down; with the lens facing you. Locate a small button in a slight recess in the right-hand side of the bottom of the camera. Press the button in to release the sprocket drive mechanism from the film. Turn the camera right-side up again, and unfold or open the film crank knob from the top most part of left-hand side knob (the one with the ASA settings on it). Return or rewind the film back into the canister by gently turning the crank clockwise until you feel the resistance ease up completely. This indicates the film has been completely rewound and is now protected from light when the back of the camera is opened, next. To open the camera back, pull the crank knob gently up and away from the top of the camera. The back door will open and when the knob is fully extended, *** will be possible to remove the film canister from the camera body. You should do this in subdued light if possible - and return the film canister into the original protective container if available - otherwise, place in a light tight box, bag, etc.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

I have a Minolta X-7A and it came with an Electronic Power Winder and I'm not sure how to use it


This is easy, underneath the power winder you should see a slver wingnut type device, this turns a screw which protrudes up (its the same pattern as a tripod screw) this will mate with the base of the camera, make sure that the on/off switch is facing the rear, put a new set of AA's in and off you go.. BEWARE do not hold your finger down too long on the shutter release, as the winder will shoot at 2 frames per second, 12 secs to burn a 24 exposure film......
I hope this has answered your question

How do i change ISO/ASA on the nikon N65?


The ISO is automatically set by the DX code on your film canister - if there is no code, the camera sets ISO 100. If you load canisters yourself with, say ISO 400 film, you can adjust the exposure using the exposure compensation button at the top right side of the LCD ( " +/- " ). Using ISO 400 film set the +/- to minus 2 ( -2 ) so that it will UNDEREXPOSE 2 stops since the film is 2 stops ( 4X ) more sensitive than ISO 100 film.

I got another camera, Dynax 300i from ebay with exactly the same symptoms. While playing ( ! ) with the new one; I released the back and it reset into normal working mode. Tried the same on my 7xi and that has reset itself and is now working correctly.
Thanks for your time.

I just bought a minolta x-300 slr (film) from a second hand shop, and have no idea how to open the camera to insert the film. can you please help me


Hello

This is a nice easy one.

To open the back cover, you need to find the rewind crank, this is on the left hand side as you look through the camera.

The knob ontop of the camera has a small black handle that folds out from the middle, unfold this then grasp the whole knob and lift it up away from the body of the camera you will feel the a spring tension and the keep pulling and the back cover will pop open.

This link will let you download the owners manual for this camera,

I hope this helps.

Light streaks on the side of my photos they go from top to bottom on the left or right side of photo. It's a 35mm camera with color film


Check at the hinged side of the film door for worn or missing light tight foam rubber. It degrades after a few years and needs to be replaced.
