I am guessing that the film is supposed to wind itself on when you close the camera? If you open the camera you may see that the film "leader" has not been drawn into the camera. When you load the film pull a small amount of the film (1 or 2 inches) out from the canister and place it into the (usually) right hand side of the camera where you will see the gears waiting to engage in the sprockets to pull the film in. The film should also lay flat across the rear of the camera where there are gears top and bottom that should engage with the film.Also check you have fresh batteries.

Yes, the film and cameara compatible.

With point and shoot cameras you need to be a bit more careful about the type of film you choose. The Higher the number, the more sensitive it is to light.

If you are going to be shooting outdoors in bright sunshine, a 100 or 200 film is preferable. 400 and 800 films are better suited to indoors or low-light conditions. This doesn't mean that you can't use a 800 film outdoors, but if you do the pictures might be a bit over-exposed which will result in the colours looking a bit washed out when you get your pictures back.Likewise, if you use a 100 film indoors or at night, the pictures can look a bit dark.

Happy snapping!

Adding a lens to my camera


To be sure you can use the lens, buy a Canon EOS lens. The plastic ones, can be cheap. I bought my last lens 28 - 80 mm, couple of months ago, for 5 dollar. and a working EOS 500 was connected for the same price. (lens and camera are still in good working order) Don't try other brands, because even when you find a convertor, it could be the lens will only work on manual focus.

Night focus maxxum 7000


First auto focus SLR. Does not focus well in low light. Put on manual focus at infinity setting on lens scale, and put camera on tripod and set the lens to something likeF8. Set exposure time to different settings and see which one works out best. You might also check your local library from one of the Kodak guide books (low light photography, etc.)

How do I set the mode


Sorry, but there are no modes on the Kodak Cameo Focus Free 35mm. It's exactly what it is, a very basic 35mm point and shoot model. Even the shutter speed and aperture are fixed according to the film speed selected. Other than the provision of the flip up flash (turned on by using the flash switch and off by using the same switch or by closing the flash) your camera is absolutely as simple as it gets.

Perhaps if you explain exactly what you're trying to do with your camera I can provide further assistance, or perhaps you have a different make and model altogether?

Hi mfkcolumbus,

Did you check the firmware version? If it's not v. 1.02, then get it at the Kodak support site and flash that firmware to your camera. If it is 1.02, then you may try to reflash that same firmware. Sometimes this helps strait'n out things.

Hope this helps.

Film is stuck in kodak advantix tried a new battery and nothing happens - camera doee nothing


APS cameras are very rarely seen these days because the film loading and advance mechanism was poorly designed and engineered from the start.

Your fault is very common and given that the camera will be irreparable anyway (no spares, plus the small problem that the camera was never designed to be repaired anyway) then you need to decide whether to just chuck it away or whether to break open the camera in total darkness and manually rewind the film back into the cassette for developing.
