    I'd like to finish a roll which has had seven frames exposed. The manual and various webpages only explain the typical fully exposed roll removal that I am familiar with. What is the best way to wind the partial roll so that it can be removed for developing?

    Put the lens cap on and fire off the remaining fames at 1/1000th and f/22 then proceed as usual?

    I thought of that but was wondering if there was a better way. Guess not. :tongue:

    Yeah, I think that's it. Don't need a lens cap and fast shutter/small aperture since you don't care about those frames...

    Wait, do you have a dog or cat. Those are perfect subjects for those types of shots! muhahahaha

    You can remove the back, then depress and hold down the pin that protrudes from one of the upper corners on the inner face of the back, then manually wind the dial on the side of the back until you feel no resistance. That'll do it.
