    I have a roll loaded in it with 15 exposures taken and without thinking I pulled off the lens... did I expose the film to light? I can't remember if that affects it or not:o

    It shouldnt, the shutter is closed. I used to change lenses off my film camera all the time.

    that's what i was thinking but as I was looking in it just looked all open. and I asked my friend who used to work at a college lab and she said she was sure I ruined 3 frames. what do women know about cameras :o

    you didnt ruin anything.

    The shutter is always closed till you press the button.

    wouldn't that suck if you had an SLR that you couldn't change lenses while it had film in it? Jesus.

    What would be even worse is ruining your film by removing the lens cap :noes:

    Wait, you mean to tell me that lenses keep light out of the camera?

    That must be what I've been doing wrong.
