FILM WINDING & FRAME NUMBERING
- With the camera still open, start winding the film until you see the big vertical arrow, then close your camera.
- Turn the film advance knob 10 times (20 half turns) so that the film reaches the correct placing for the first photo.
- After the first photo is taken, advance the film by 4 knob’s turns (or 8 half turns), and do this for photo 2, 3, and 4 (the last one).
- Wind until the end of the film: the empty spool becomes the take-up spool: put the key adapter on it. You’re ready to shoot again.
NOTES: The No. 3A Kodaks have a little red window in the back of the camera: it was used to read the frame number written on the film’s paper. It’s highly unlikely that you will see some sort of numbers or signs on the 120 film paper because of the totally different film format. But if this is your case, use it as a helper for controlling the film position in the camera.
A little trial and error is to be expected.
