if film is stuck or not rewound


Date: Mon Nov 10 2003 - 18:52:14 PST

Just FYI if you ever get film stuck in a camera don't open it if you're not sure its rewound. You can take it in a completely dark room (give your eyes a few minutes to adjust to make sure its dark) and open the camera and wind the film back in by hand. Also, if you ever open a camera and see film that's not wound, shut it as fast as you can. Many of the pictures may be salvagable. Also, you can take the camera to a photo processing place and they can take the film out for you safely.
