You don't say what kind of camera you have so this answer will be kind of generic. Get a roll of film you don't care about to use for test purposes. With the back of the camera open, load the film as usual and watch what happens.

Hello, Please help me I love my camera! The last 3 rolls of film I have taken only the last half of the roll come out the first part of the film is black I'm only getting half of the pictures I take. It's not the film I've had different brands of film in it Please help me Sincerely Christina

Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the sh ... Canon EOS Rebel GII with 35-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put film in, and take it out. I haven't gotten batteries for it yet. If it helps, the frame count is on 's'. So, my only problem is the film advance lever. Is it broken....?!?????!??!

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model) ... Digital Cameras

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.

The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Hi Experts, I bought an Olympus C170 camera 6 years before. It was good... recently due to some problem Technicians changed Lens in my camera.. Now the problem is I feel some delay time while I am shooting.. I am not able to grab the scene which I suppose to take. Once I pressed click button.. it takes some time to get flash/photo. Please clarify what would be the reason... Is there any setting needs to be done in my camera .. or its a camera issue.

I've been using this camera for just over 2 years now with the same 1GB SD memory card. but just a week ago at my high school graduation party and ceremony, I've taken a decent amount of pictures(maybe about 30 or so) and I know that isn't much for a 1GB SD card. I had some other photos and videos recorded on this card which are important to me.

T7 video A colleague of mine is interested in a new digicam. He likes to take short video sequences and was wondering if the T7 features proper optical zoom with continuous auto-focus, auto-exposure while videoing? I know the first generations of digicams only allowed digital zoom and wouldn't change focus from the point at which one started filming. Also, any general experiences of video on the T7 - how long can one film etc?

Hello\015\012\015\012The zoom does not work on the T7 while you video, you have to zoom first and then start to video, then it is fixed at that zoom setting.\015\012\015\012Other than that, the video is pretty good, I have taken video clips up to abo ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

Blurry picture Video works fine, however when I take a still picture, it appears as purple and blurry...almost looks as if the screen is runny. Sometimes when I take a picture it seems as if there is a film covering 3/4 of the shot.
