    Hi guys, I'm getting back into film photography and I'm having a bit of trouble with the camera i just purchased. It's an olympus OM10. When I try to advance the film, about half the time it fires the shutter. It only does it with film in the camera. Do you guys have any idea of how to fix this thing? Here is a video of the problem.

    EDIT: I just realized there is a repair forum, OOPS!
