    My Yashica T5 skips frames on film advance

    I just put a new film in and noticed how the camera keeps skipping frames, which causes the film to be much shorter than it actually is. What can i possibly do? My guess is that the film magazine (takeup spool) is not working properly. I wonder, what if i put a different DX code to the film...

    Raising aperture = more sharpness?

    I know it gives you more DOF but does that automatically give me more sharpness in a picture? Maybe i am overthinking it or simply going in a wrong direction with this. Either way, while we at it, what do you do with your camera to get the most sharpness? Thanks in advance.

    The F8 rule: doesnt work for me

    I tried this F8 thing that supposedly gives you better pics but in order for me to even see something, i have to crank up the ISO and shutter speed something serious and then the pics are super-grainy (because of the ISO obviously) - did i misunderstand something about this rule?
