    How to change films... when rewind is secured

    There are those nasty motorized cameras that got a tiny rewind button located in a circular recess, and need a tool to activate it. And still do not deliver such tool (eg. fixed to the handstrap).

    The renown Olympus µ-1 is such a camera.

    Seemingly one is expected to have a ball-pen, tooth-pick etc. around.


    By lack of such tool:

    Fold the end of the tongue of the fresh film. Do it in the middle between two perforations, in order not to weaken a perforation.
    You gain a sharp corner enabling you to activate that button.

    Unfold that crease again before loading that film.

    Not nasty at all are those cameras that got a slit through that hole, enabling one to use ones fingernail.

    Concerning the Olympus µ-1 I have to correct myself:

    It rewinds the film automatically after full exposure. In this case that recessed knob serves only for mid-film rewind.

    lots (well the couple I've had) of those cameras have a thingy on the strap for doing that.
