Make sure the batteries are in good shape. The film discharge reqluires that the camera has enough charge to function

I HAVE A CAMERA OLYMPUS NEWPIC AF 200.I WANT TO KNOW THAT WHERE I CAN GET THE CARTRIDGE FILM.


APS film is no longer made, but you may find old stocks for sale on ebay, Amazon and similar online sites. Processing can be difficult these days as few labs can handle APS any more.

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).

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.

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.

Which films are used with this camera?


The clue is in the name. It uses APS film, but it's a dying format and is increasingly difficult to buy. When you find some buy just one roll until you've checked the camera works: APS cameras were crippled with a dreadful film transport design and it can be difficult to find one which still works. If broken, then just chuck the camera into the recycling bin: it's worthless and parts are not available.

Stuck remaining exposure count despite new film, new film unlded


You might try closing the film compartment without film in it and press the manual rewind button. This might reset the counter circuit.
