Accidental Rewind

June 28th, 2011 by

My grandfathers camera has a shutter problem where if the shutter speed is too slow for the amount of light, it will remain open. Not knowing if I had a shot or not, I re-wound the film. I still lost 13 shots out of 36 to darkness.

Film: Kodak Portra 400 35mm
Camera: Pentax Asahi

  • I have taken notice that in cameras, special receptors help to aim automatically. These sensors of some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others make use of a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, specially in low lumination. Higher standards cameras from time to time use a blend of both devices and may have Face Priority AF where the video camera can ‘See’ a face while keeping your focus only in that. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this weblog.
