Good morning all. I’ve had a nightmare with my Pentax this morning and I’m really panicking.

I have a Pentax loaded with a 36 exposure film roll. I’m on 33 photos and decided I didn’t want anymore so I pressed the film release button on the bottom and began to rewind the film until the handle broke off! I then panicked even more by testing to see if there was film still left, so I pressed the shutter release button a few times and seemingly took some photos , like 3 or 4.

Have I ruined my film roll? Is there any way to rewind the film and get it out? The handle on the camera that broke off is also what I need to open the back of the camera (something I won’t wan’t to do just yet as the film would get exposed!)

Not that it makes a difference but there are some precious holiday photos on there so I want to make absolutely sure I can salvage a few if I haven’t ruined them all already!

Taking it to a camera shop on my lunch break but until then I’d love to hear something that’ll calm me down

Hi

You have almost certainly lost some frames with double exposure, but the rest should be fine and you can take the film out in the dark or in a changing bag and rewind it into the cassette by hand.
