    Well, I trimed the 120 down with an exacto knife, fits great. Now I have another delima, and dont laugh, lol, I'm not shure how to tell if I am advancing the frames corectly. Experiment and learn, that's all I can say.

    You can tell if the exposure number shows in the red window on the back of the camera. When the #1 appears, you are ready to shoot. When you advance the film, remember to watch the red window every time. The backing paper has the numberd printed on it, and thats how you know.

    Yeah, I figured it out. Wasn't to hard, lol. I'm not fimilar with older cameras like this, but love to expirment with them. I went out and took some random pictures just to see how they look. I didn't like the fact that you can not adjust the exposure, or focus. It is just a point and shoot. Next to figure out is my Graflex Crown Graphic. Hummmmm............

    I have a Duaflex II that has a basic four zone focus and a whopping 3 f-stop range.

    I never understood the zone system. 3 f-stops, wow! Well, it's more than that Argus of mine has. So far on the Graflex..... I figured out how to open it and work the shutter, lol. Guess I need to search out a manual online.

    Open it back up and find the offending part and clean it. There should not be anything really bad, maybe just a little dirt on a roller. Sorry I cant nelp with the Graflex. If you have the model number you might be able to find some instructions at Butkus.com.

    I have one of these cameras. A word of
    caution: Cover the red window with a square
    of gaffers tape and lift it up to advance the
    film. Otherwise sunlight through the window
    will penetrate the film back and imprint the
    frame number on your image.
