In all the procedures is better that you don't touch the shutter gears,and not wet it at all

Nice job. I personally think that this camera was underrated in it's life. They are still available on Ebay for very little money.
i agree,i bought mine for 5 $ on ebay,but the shipping for italy is too expensive...i think that this camera was not so much appreciated for the unvariable focus...
Thats great! I have about a half dozen of these and love it when I see other people using them. While you can re-spool film yourself if that's not something you'd like to try you can also get film for "obsolete cameras from http://www.filmforclassics.com/
personally i don't like to respool,it's boring...i trim the 120 spool to fit in the 620
Wow! I wouldn't have thought you could get film for something like this! You must develop it yourself, right?
i think that you mean that the new 120 format unfit the old 620 cameras(english is not my home language),well there's a lot of tutorials for adapt the 120 for 620 camera: <a href="http://mconnealy.com/vintagecameras/120in620/" rel="nofollow">http://mconnealy.com/vintagecameras/120in620/</a><br> <br> &nbsp;but if you have a dualflex the up-down layout of the roll allow you to make that cool mod:<a href="http://dinnerpicasso.blogspot.com/2008/02/loading-35mm-film-in-kodak-duaflex-ii.html" rel="nofollow">http://dinnerpicasso.blogspot.com/2008/02/loading-35mm-film-in-kodak-duaflex-ii.html</a><br> &nbsp;for get an image like this:&nbsp;<br> <a href="http://static.photo.net/attachments/bboard/00R/00RJJA-83253584.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://static.photo.net/attachments/bboard/00R/00RJJA-83253584.jpg</a><br> <br> <br> <br>
