Top 20 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

It's collectable, but really isn't worth much at all even in absolutely perfect and fully functional condition. Plenty were made, they're not that special, they certainly aren't usable any more and so they have very limited appeal.

The few really good ones I've seen over the last ten years or so have typically sold for around £40-£50 maximum, and often haven't sold on the first attempt. In any other condition they're either worthless or go for up to £20-£30 depending upon how much interest there is on the day. Basically they are simply worth what any buyer is prepared to pay when you happen to sell them. Id sold at auction, collectors rarely compete as they know another one will be along shortly.

My prices are UK indicators, you can expect prices in N.America to be around 30% lower and in mainland Europe to be around 10-15% lower.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The cost of transportation and labour makes repair of many very old cameras uneconomic (plus the issue/cost of custom built spare parts) so unless its particularly rare or of sentimental value, another option to consider would be buying a working one off ebay.

Worth a thought?

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Trying going to the Kodak website, perhaps the store/shop, to see if you can order a replacement "shoe". The attaching plate or "shoe" is specific to your tripod so you will most likely need an exact replacement.

There is a great little device at Bed Bath & Beyond right now that is inexpensive and easy to use. You just pop them in there hit a button and do the next one. There are also 6 extra converter trays for around $20 so you dont have to spend all of your time waiting on one to scan so you can put the other one in. You can find it here http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=15800313&RN=2017
