    Solida 11 1953

    July 19, 2013 by Jackflash15

    Does anyone know how to retract the camera lens for the Solida 11  1953 model .  I am NOT a camera buff. I was given the camera, I opend it pulled out the concertina lens, no problem trouble is it wont go back. I think there must be some sort of procedure to do this. Its not broken it seems to be locked ??    Any help please

    Help with Olympus Trip

    December 9, 2012 by MeriPlay800

    Hi!! I would like to buy a good Olympus analog camera to my mum. She loved the Olympus Trip AF30 (that I broke) and she doesn't like the Olympus III U-120, which she bought a lot of years ago after the Trip one. 

    Now, I would like to find a compact camera (even used) similar to the first one but much better than it. 

    Can you help me, please? Because I do not know anything about analog cameras.

    Thank you

    Olympus OM40 Repair

    November 28, 2012 by SmashGuru

    I have a Olympus OM40-Program 35 mm camera and the film advance lever is stuck on it -- it won't budge for me to reload film and/or advance.  Does anybody know why this is or how to fix it?  If so would it be an expensive fix?  And would it be a simple DIY fix if I opened the camera up or should it be best left to the repair-technician?  Any knowledge or advice on the subject is much appreciated. Thank you!

    I am writing this article because we cannot find any information on the world wide web regarding this old tool.

    My girlfriend´s parents bought this camera from the housekeeper that sold furniture from a German or Austrian photographer. This photographer passed away in 1970 or 1971, hence why the housekeeper was selling all the furniture. Supposedly he left all his belongings to this housekeeper. Unfortunately, we cannot remember the name of either of the two persons.

    Apparently it was a quite famous photographer in Madrid, Spain. He made photo´s of the Royal Family in this country, amongst them Alphonso XIII (He was King until 1941).

    Two years after her parents bought the camera, in 1973, there was a story about this photographer in the ABC (…
