thats looks like the start of a beautiful day !
just noticed 2 of my pics have vanished...hmmmmm
post a fishingboat here in a sec.
Conway box camera, 6x9 format, Agfa Optima 100 film, Handheld
nice photo, nice camera !
is 6x9 the same as 620 film ?
that camera looks like a kodak one i had.
i heard about respooling 120 onto 620spools (?).
help me out where i'm wrong with this..
you actually needed 2 sets of 620 spools : spool the
film once - and then onto a further set of spools, to
get it the right -way round. (?)
.. in absolute darkness hmmmm sounded tricky.
6x9 is the negative size.. 8 photos per roll of 120 film.
There are many ways to respool film onto 620 spools. You need 1 set of 620 spools. I usually spool the 120 film onto another 120 spool and then transfer that to the 620 spool. The last transfer is tricky as the film is not attached to the paper backing on this end. It is best to practice with an old roll of film in the light prior to using good film in the dark. That way you can see what is happening and get a feel for it. I use a film changing bag for the process. After some practice, it will about 5 to 10 minutes to do the transfer and be ready to load the camera.
thanks for knowledge PB !
