    I bought it years ago...thinking I'd take up photography....well, here I am, and I don't even know how to open the %&# thing to put film in it!!! :greenpbl: LOL!!!

    Can anyone help me??

    Pull up on the rewind knob to open the back.

    Here is an owners manual.

    If it's in good working condition, yes, it's a decent camera.

    Thank you!! I appreciate your help! :wink:

    Oh...one more thing...what kind of film does this thing use (I don't recall seeing that info in the manual), and where does one find film for such a camera? LOL!!

    :O)
