    Here is one, with a cog-wheel inside.
    It works, but I think red window on the back works better...

    Thanks for the pictures! It's the counter I thought about. Doesn't the wheel push that side of the film out of focus?

    A spring holds the wheel and the film pressure plate pushes it.
    But I don't think it pushes entirely. So one side of the film may be some out of focus.
    I have not made pictures with this camera, but I think you are right.
