    Olympus OM-1N Rewind shaft fell in - help?

    Hi all! I've had my Olympus OM-1N for over a year and I enjoy taking pictures with it a lot. I've been dumb enough to turn the rewind crank the wrong way a few times before which causes it to fall off (yes I know, shame on me, I found out today that there is an arrow on the crank to point me in...

    Fujifilm Klasse Shutter Broken

    Hi, I have a Fujifilm Klasse 35mm point and shoot but the shutter will only open fully when aperture is set to f/2.6. As I change the aperture up the size the shutter gradually decreases e.g. when set to f/16 (the biggest on the camera) the shutter barely opens. When I first got the camera the...

    35mm Barcelona Street Scene - 2004

    I shot this beauty in 2004 on my first ever camera, MINOLTA X300, not sure if this is the 35mm or 50mm lens... It's all a bit wonky but that was just my untrained eye back then. A nice innocence to it. It hit me so hard seeing this again, just brought back so many memories. I think it was so...

    Minolta XD-7 Meter/Shutter Speed/Viewfinder issue

    Hello, I've just bought a Minolta XD7 seemingly in great condition, however it has one major fault: Light coming in through the viewfinder severely affects the shutter speed. i.e. when the viewfinder is covered (simply by holding the camera up to your eye), although metering correctly, the...

    I have just bought a Canon Speedlite 199a to use with my Canon AE1 (35mm film camera).

    I'm new to film photography and I've just finished my second 36-exp colour roll. I haven't the money or equipment right now to develop/scan the film myself so I'm going to rely on highstreet labs (though I've seen good reviews for PhotoExpress online). I'm planning on taking them to my local...
