    g617 loading problem

    I've just put the first film in my g617 and have manged to begin the film start arrow in the wrong place because I never had a manual with it. Then just found one on the net. It's about 2 inches further to the left than it should be. Am I right in thinking that the remaining 3 shots will be fine albeit in the wrong places or should I scrap it and begin again?

    How would you describe yourself compared to the other students . . .

    A decadant money squandering shelf stacker rolling around in silken robes with boutique chocolates falling out of my mouth. Nope, no Gaoersi. It's a Fuji G617. I could wind it back but then the first exposed frame is going to overlap the second and the whole film will be buggered then. This is my last purchase for a very long time!

    The final 3 frames will be fine. Great camera!
