How the HELL do you rewind film in a vintage, Russian Zenit E without snapping the film or destroying the camera? Just watch....
I’ve read lots of tips about how to rewind film in a Zenit E and they’ve all been supremely convoluted. I searched YouTube for a How-To video and found LSI’s video for rewinding film in a Zenit 122 which was great, but it didn’t really help me and my Zenit E.
Tonight, I figured out how to do it FINALLY!! I decided a YouTube video had to be made documenting this occasion because if I had trouble doing it, I KNOW a lot of others have had trouble, too.
So, without further ado, my video. Enjoy!
Oh, that giggling? My daughter Phoebe. She thought this whole thing was just hysterical.
