How to Load Film Into a 35mm Camera
- Introduction: How to Load Film Into a 35mm Camera.
- Locate the Rewind Knob, on the left side of the camera, and pull up until the back of the camera opens.
- Cut a Leader for your film to load into the Take-Up Spool.
- Place the film into the left side of the camera.
What does S mean on film camera?
The “S” is probably indicating that the start of the film (the tongue) hasn’t been moved yet. You normally have to advance two frames before you actually get to usable film (since the tongue protrudes and will be exposed when loading). Try “dry firing” the camera without any film loaded.
How do you know if a film camera takes pictures?
To check if there’s film in it, don’t open it, just lift the rewind knob and turn it gently in the direction of the arrow. If it moves freely round and round, there’s no film in it, if there’s resistance after half a turn or two, there’s film in it.
Can you load film in daylight?
Can you load film in the light? You can load film in the light, as only the leader should be exposed. But try to avoid loading your film in bright daylight if possible. You can simply turn away from the sun or shield your camera from the light with your hands.
How do you tell if a roll of film has been used?
To know if APS film has been used, look for the four numbers at the top or bottom of the film canister.
- If there is a white dot next to “1”, then the film has not yet been exposed.
- If there is a white half-circle next to “2”, then the film has been changed mid-roll and is ready to be reloaded into the camera.
How do you know if a film is loaded properly?
Don’t worry, there is an easy way to determine if the film is moving forward or not. When you use the film advance to wind the film, you simply have to check if the knob on the left (that you use to rewind the film) is turning. If it turns, good, it means that the film is properly engaged.
What happens if I open film camera?
The film that is exposed to light will be ruined. The unexposed film still rolled inside the film cannister will still be OK. If you closed the camera back immediately after opening and exposing the film you will maybe loose for or five frames (overexpose). There is nothing you can do about it.

Only the film that is outside of the canister will have been exposed to daylight ( ruined ) when you opened the camera. So any film inside the canister will be fine.
