    go to any photo shop and ask a favour form them. or u can spend $20+/- to get a film picker.

    The old traditional way ... take a used or unwanted negative ... soak with water and slide into the file canister for a few round of turns .. then PULL OUT. Hopefully the film will come out ... remember the chemical side must be facing down for sliding into ....

    You may ask any of the CS member who has the film picker to help u to extract the film head this evening SEED

    After u load back the film, leave the lens cap ON the lens, set the camera to Manual mode with the fastest shutter speed and smallest aperture values, and snap 1 shot.

    cut a small piece of cardboard. the width same as the film canister's opening. stick a small piece of double-sided tape on one end. roll dat end slowly into the film canister. once u feel the tape sticking onto the end of the film, pull it out slowly.

    thanks to all the advise , but i manage to pull it out with a pin and result in one side of the edge torn , think i dont need the 1st flim anymore coz expose , 2nd maybe expose too and after cutting away the torn part maybe will start at the 3rd or 4th flame?
