Was it shot with the (I presume cine) camera upside down ? All I can suggest is that you get it transferred to DVD, copy it to computer, then use VLC (free) to edit it and invert it.

Step by step guide for rolling a film reel for developing


Rolling film on a metal reel can be very challenging and for years I avoided using these reels in favor of the plastic ones with the large lip for leading the negative around the reel. Over the last year or so I have been working on getting around this fear of not being able to roll the film.

The first and most important thing that you have to make sure is that when you cut off the "L" shaped piece make sure that you cut the film between the sprocket holes. Those first few holes are crucial for the ability to successfully loading the film on to the reel.

On the center post of the reel there are two very small hooks that you want the negative to hook on to using those sprocket holes. These hooks work to make sure that the film stays put while you roll and throughout the development process.

Once the film is hooked on you are going to slowly turn the reel around and around holding the unrolled film on the sides. Make sure to hold on the sides because you don't want your fingers to scratch the very sensitive negative.

If you practice in the light with dead rolls of film you can check if you rolled well by holding up the roll and looking though. If you can see between the rounds of film then you have done a good job. It is important that the film be rolled smoothly because if parts are touching then the chemicals can't get in and the film will not develop properly. Once you have mastered rolling this way in the light take some time to roll a dead roll of film in the dark before you get to the real stuff (no pun intended).

My Nikon N60 wont load film. I load the film but it doesnt wind the film, but when i take a picture it rewinds it. I dont know what im doing wrong


Hi. Pay careful attention to the way the end of the film fits through the take-up reel. Open the back (empty) and give the wind knob a few twists. That will tell you which way it is turning. Put the end of your film through the slot in the take-up reel so itd winds onto itself as it advances. There's usually enough extra unexposed wound onto the factory reel that it won't cost you and pix at the end of it. Pull enough out of the cassette to be sure your winding-load position is really going to hold when you advance. Good luck.

I have a minolta autodual 8 film projector but the front reel is turning backwards in the wrong direction. How do I change the direction to turn in the same direction as the back reel.


I assume you haven't put a reel of film onto the projector and looped it through to the back spool. The front spool usually 'freewheels' whilst the film is pulled through the projector and taken up by the motor driven rear spool.
It is possible that the friction drive and/or drive belt have deteriorated with age, as the mentioned projector is a rather elderly 'classic' of the dual 8mm series.
If in doubt, don't risk your family pictures. Try the unit with an old piece of film on small spools.

Film stuck in on right hand side


First, be sure you've pushed the film release button (usually located on the bottom of older film cameras) and then try rewinding. If the film is stuck on the take-up reel of your camera your best bet is to manually unwind the film from the reel and see if it will work properly again. If not then it wasn't a film problem but a mechanical one on the reel.

re-align the film roll on the Drum. This worked for me. There are two wheels on the outer-side of the film reel (the film reel is one of two reels on the main top drum). Take out the drum, not the green reel, but the other one. Check both ends and you can se/feel two little silver metal wheels (again, at the ends). Roll the film around with your fingers until it is aligned evenly with the wheels. The metal on the wheels should not be showing at all, they should both be covered by the film reel. Replace the drum

I have a Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload Super8/Regular 8mm Projector bought in 1969. During projection, when the very end of the advancing film is no longer engaged by the rotating teeth, the film...


The Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload was made that way ON PURPOSE. The last foot or so must be manually pulled from the projector. As described in the manual, "this safeguard has been designed to prevent the end of your film from flapping against the projector after your movie is completed."
If the entire film was going into the take up reel at the end automatically, then THAT was a defective occurence. It is not supposed to do that.

I want to know how to rewind a film reel or reverse an Elmo FP-A movie projector. I have an old Elmo FP-A movie projector that works fine. I do not have the instruction manual that would explain how to...


There are 3 round knobs and 1 Autostart switch on the control panel. The key to rewinding this machine is by pushing the gray button down, while turning the Motor Knob to the "Run" position. Of course you'll need to start the original film back on its reel, directly. (Do not thread the film as you would normally.) BTW, you can show your films in reverse by using the Reverse button on the motor switch while its running. Hope this helps. Now, if I can find someone who can guide me in re-assembling my Elmo projector's lens, which I dis-assembled in order to clean the crud off the multi-lenses in the main lens unit itiself.

Unloading my medium format camera


If i remember correctly there should be a button on the bottom of the camera opposite side of the film winder if you press that button it will release the tension on the film and allow you to reel the film back into the film canistor.BE CAREFUL when reeling it back in because you can reel the whole roll back into the film canistor, when you think your getting towards the end go SLOW you will feal the reel loosen up alot.that means that the film has let go of the other side STOP and you can open the case without exposong your film.GOOD LUCK if this helps rate me or leave some more info.Thanks.
