Question about Photography

1 Answer

I have a 35mm film camera. I took pictures without realizing that I didn't have film inside. Afterward, I pushed the button on the bottom of the camera. I tried rewinding it to pop the back open.

You know how the button on the bottom lifts back up once you rewind your film and open the back, well it lifted but my back just will not pop open like it should.

What camera is it? On most older film cameras you lift the rewind crank to release the back or a separate lock for the back. Not having a film in will not affect the back opening mechanism. Check the book for your camera.

The same happened once to my A-1. If I rememeber well, button popped out again after sliding the double exposure lever under the shutter lever and then winding the shutter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problems rewinding film.

Your film is already rewound (if I understood you correctly). Your camera is beeping because the film is rewound and there is no film for the camer to take the photo on since it has been rewound.

I bought this camera at Value Village for $1.99. It came up with an E. I assumed this was an E for empty. I loaded a film and it is fine. [email protected]

SOURCE: Film Rewind Button Problem!

mistermanage,

turn the advance lever to charge the shutter.or open the film door and rotate the drive sprocket to the right, this will release the button. if the button didn't pop up then the bottom cover will have to be removed in order to release it manually.

Hello, just found my 35mm ae-1 camera. took some pictures and its not rewinding back up . little crank is moving but film is not going back in. am I missing a step?


Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.

There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.

Either the development house you took it to is not reliable, you're shooting out of date film, or in bad light.

Remember that film is designed only to look good in sunlight outside. They sell colored filters you can place on the front of your camera if you need to shoot inside without the colors looking off.

Okay this is completely on memory. With the button on the bottom pushed in the camera is waiting for your to rewind the film back into the canister after this is done lift the wheel (not the crank it can break) the wheel is just below the crank and the back of the camera will open so you can take the film out. Reload a fresh roll close the door and advance to the first frame you are back in business again.

Minolta X-7A - the film advances, but the counter


The film counter moves without the film inside the camera.
You will need to replace the film counter assembly.

What is the button on the bottom of Olympus Stylus zoom 140


No. You just rewound the film. The pictures you took are safe, but you probably 'lost' the rest of the film you did not shoot.

Film advance


I removed the advance lever cover as suggested and tightened the screw. This did not solve the issue. However, I then realized the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera was stuck on the "in" position. I could not get it to release which meant I could not advance the film lever to free up the shutter. To solve this issue I removed the bottom cover from the camera (taking out the 3 small screws) and then pulled the advance lever button all the way to the right. This released the button that had been stuck in and allowed me to advance the film lever properly again and take more pictures. Hope this helps!
