Posted - May 13 2009 : 08:18:49 AM I got an old Horizont on ebay with a great little commemorative plate on the back and everything seems to be working fine, except I can't get the rewind knob to pop up to rewind the film so I can really make sure its in good condition before I go to Japan in a few days. Is there some sort of trick that I am missing?
Thanks a lot!

There's the plate Vlad. Thanks for your input, but if that's for getting the film out, how do you go about rewinding the film?

If I remember correctly you press and rotate then it pops.. if it does not happen it may be missing a spring... in this case maybe press, rotate then turn it upside down and shake it .. I'm intrigued by the commemorative plate on the back, would you mind posting picture of it?
