    Calumet Roll holder C2


    Just received my roll holder from KEH and it is in excellent condition ,like new actually.I had downloaded the instruction manual previous to receiving it and depressed the clutch button and turned the crank to the position between 20 and “S as per the manual. Tried a little dry shooting and the frame counter advanced normal. Loaded the holder with a roll of film with the counter reset to neutral and closed the back .And then turning the film advanced it never moved the frame counter and went to the end of the roll without stopping. Fortunately I was using a dummy load I dropped KEH a note. Meanwhile It is possible to use it and get 8 exposures by turning the crank and counting the revolutions. Any one else run into anything like this?

    Never mind!!! Just needed to tweak the counter knob a tiny bit. Just being overly cautious with a new piece of equipment .

    Did that with my SINAR roll film holder. I was being way too cautious.
