    Please be gentle with me‚ I am very new to cameras like this· I am used to the simple walmart cheapo cameras that are dummy proof

    I just inherited a Pentax P30· I have no idea how old it is‚ the batteries in it work and the film was half way used· (Don't ask)

    I finished the film out by playing around taking some photos but now I can't figure out how to get the film out! (I know you are all laughing)

    Please help me! I have pushed every button on this thing and can't figure it out· I looked for an online manual which I found but it doesn't say either·&#8194

    Thanks

    IIRC you pull up on the winder -- the knob under the fold out handle.
    At least that's how other Pentax's of the same era worked.

  3. First of all rewind the film by pushing the little button on the bottom of
    the camera. Keep it pushed and rewind it. When the film is completely
    rewinded, pull that little thing, and it will come out.
