In this video I’m going to show you how to
load and unload a roll of 35mm film in a manual film camera. First open the back by pulling up on the rewind
knob. Put the film in and stretch it tight across
the back. Insert the film leader in the slot on the
take-up reel and wind the film on with the advance lever.
Make sure the holes are lined up evenly with the sprocket.
Now you can close the back. Wind and fire the camera until the frame counter
reaches one. while you are doing this check to see that
the rewind dial is rotating with each wind. set your ISO dial to the film speed.
insert your box tab in the reminder slot if you have one.
Now you are ready to shoot. Now we can unload.
When you have reached the end of your film press either a rewind button on top of the
camera or on most models the release button on the bottom.
Use the rewind knob to wind the film until you hear the clicking of the film releasing.
You can continue to wind to be safe or you can take it out at this point.
Open the back and remove your film.
