Finally got my second working roll of flim developed and printed. But there seem to be a major problem.
Firstly, I'm using a Minolta X-700 camera with the frame counter broken (it won't work) so I wouldn't know the exact number of exposures shot.
Now, I took a roll of flim recently to the botanic gardens for some shot but it seems like after getting it developed and printed at colour labs (adelphi). The index they gave me only shows 10 photos. with about 3 of them with black patches on the left (they won't printed anyhow).
The funny thing is that the number goes like blank, 0a, 1a, 4a, 5a, 6a, 11a, 31a, 35a, 37.
What does this mean? Does this mean that I've actually managed to use up to the full 36 exposures because it ends at 37?
Then what could have happened to the frames between.
I'm considering whether is me not loading or the advance lever not working properly cos, At the last few exposures (I think), I could push the advance lever and still shoot unlimitedly but it needs me some force to force the lever though. Does it mean my flim ended too?
Sorry if this is too much questions to digest hehe. I hope you guys can help me troubleshoot.
