20 Most Recent Kodak Advantix C470 APS Point and Shoot Camera Questions & Answers


To the best of my knowledge all 35mm cameras load identically, apart from a few automatic models that claimed to be self loading.

A new film cassette has a tongue of film protruding. Once the cassette has been loaded into the recess on the left and the rewind crank pushed down and engaged with the film spool, a couple of inches of film is pulled from the cassette and the tongue poked through the slot in the takeup spool - it might be necessary to use the film advance until the slot is visible.

With about a half-inch of film pushed through the slot, slowly advance the film until the slackness is gone while fully engaging the sprocket holes at the edges of the film on the teeth of the sprockets. Advance the film a little more to check it is properly engaged and once you are satisfied close the camera back firmly making certain the catch is engaged and it won't spring open again.

Once closed, advance the film until it stops which signals the shutter is set and is ready to take a photograph, however the first and perhaps the second frame has been contaminated with light and so press the shutter release, advance and press again and the third advance is where the photographs begin. If there is a frame counter it is best to be guided by this.

Cameras that have a manual advance usually have a manual return crank that will be seen to rotate as the film is advanced. When all the frames have been used the film will be felt to come to the end. At this point the clutch button must be pressed to disengage the wind-on mechanism and the film wound back into the cassette using the crank on the left.

Again, most kind of you to pass on this information. Was there any particular reason behind your doing so ?

If you are disabled, and use a walking frame, you should be able to get assistance from the Social Services department of your local council
