Where can I get film for Minolta Vectis 300 camera online?


The Vectis 300 uses APS film, which is almost a dead thing. You can still find some here. If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

What type of film does Minolta Vetis 20 take?


The Vectis 20 takes APS (Advanced Photo System) film, which is a smaller format than the more common 35mm format.

CANT BUY FILM FOR CAMERA ARE THEY OBSOLETE


No manufacturer makes APS film any longer. Kodak discontinued production in around 2004, Fuji in around 2006. You may be able to find it on Ebay or amazon, but it'll be expired or near expiration.

Where and how do you insert film on a minolta vectis 2000 camera


Essentially, you probably don't as APS film is no longer made and is getting difficult to get processed if you do get some old stock.

But like on all APS cameras, there's a lock on one end of the camera and usually you turn it to open a small door on the bottom of the camera. The APS film cassette gets pushed into the compartment and when you close the door and the camera *should* wind the film ready for shooting and lock the door so that you cannot open it until the film is rewound. The cameras are entirely battery dependent and many used CR2 lithium batteries which are disproportionately expensive and hard to find except from online suppliers.

Unfortunately APS was a badly engineered system from the start, so the cameras didn't tend to last long before suffering major faults. You may wish to bear that fact in mind as those faults won't show until you load a film and any film you do find will likely cost more than you can buy another APS camera for. They're widely available for free or for about a £ or two from almost any charity shop (not from the one I work in though as I always put them straight into the recycling bin as they're a liability).

Minlota Vectis 2000- I want to open the film door without battery power. Is there an emergency release?


In short, no. The camera must be dismantled. If the film hasn't rewound, then if you wish to save your images you must dismantle it in total darkness: not easy! As the camera is usually a write-off anyway I just slowly crush APS cameras in a vice in my darkroom until they pop open enough for me to extract the film.

If the camera is faulty and not just in need of a fresh battery, then after recovering your film just chuck the camera away; it's not repairable and it definitely isn't collectable. APS was a poorly-engineered system from the start and 35mm has outlasted it largely because APS cameras were generally highly fault-prone and unreliable. It also didn't help that the image quality was worse than on 35mm because of the smaller negatives.

It's not all bad news: 35mm cameras of most types are now mostly near worthless and so commonly available for free on FreeCycle and Freegle as are APS cameras if you really want another.

Hopefully you will just need a fresh battery, but either way I hope that you manage to recover your film successfully.

Exposed film cartridge will not eject.


Well, I'm not sure exactly what I did, but the problem is solved. I opened the case to see if I could get the film out that way, but it would have entailed totally disassembling the camera, and I didn't want to do that. I put the case back on and tried the manual rewind button, which wouldn't work before. It rewound the film this time, and I was able to eject the cartridge. So I don't know exactly what the problem was or what I did that fixed it, but the camera is working properly now!
