First off, I apologize if this was the improper place to start this thread, and if it was, please feel free to move it, admin or mod. Recently, for my 17th birthday, my Dad gave me the old SLR camera that he used when he was in high school. It's really cool and I enjoy using it, but when I took the film to be developed, two of my rolls were screwed up. On one of them, only one frame out of 24 was actually exposed. Every other frame was blank. And on another one, only 13 out of 24 exposures came out. I didn't load the film incorrectly to my knowledge, I followed the instruction booklet step by step. Plus my dad helped me with one of them. The only thing I can think of is that even though the film is advancing, maybe the shutter isn't opening? I've been thinking about taking it to a repair shop, but I don't know what they'll be able to do, because it's really old. And I really really want to be able to use it. Anyone have any suggestions?
