My first roll of film passed through the Zenit ET. Time to rewind. But… HOW? I took a while to find the rewind release button. When I found it, it was hard to push down. Guess I didn’t do it well enough, because the film snapped right of.
Although I didn’t get that until I opened the back and let the light in! But you learn from you mistakes, and I can enlighten others about them, so here’s how you do it.
The rewind release is around the shutter release-button. On the Zenit ET is protected of a halfcircle of plastic. I now use the casing of a pen to press it down, ALL THE WAY DOWN!
Ok, rewind the film with the film rewind knob. Lift it up to open cameraback and take out the film. Now, I don’t know if its just my cameras rewind release thats a bit stuck but I hade to screw the button a bit to get it back up again.
For forther reading look at the Zenit B, E and EM manual.
