I am relatively new to this forum and this is my first post, although I do read things here from time to time. I own several very nice vintage cameras and I love using them. However, I have a problem with one of them that I hope someone can help with.
I have recently finished off a roll of 35mm film in my lovely old Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC (the one with the removeable film back). I rewound the film, inserted the metal shim in the back, and turned the latches at the bottom of the camera. Unfortunately, nothing happens. The film back will not release and come off and I cannot retrieve the film or use the camera at this point.
I do not own a manual for this camera so I have nothing to refer to. I can probably send this camera off for a repair and have the problem resolved but I wouldn't know how to fix it if it ever happened again. I am hoping that someone out there can lead me to some solution to my problem.
Thank you in advance for you assistance,
