    Which way do the negs go?

    I know that 120 negs, or maybe all, curl with the emulsion side on the bottom of the curl but looking thru my neg pages, sometimes
    the KODAK TMX100 ....1....2... numbering is at the top right side up, and sometimes backwards.
    Am i loading the film wrong in the camera , RZ67, or putting negs in the neg sheets wrong? Which way should they read? thanks!

    If you have images, the film went through the camera correctly. The numbers read correctly with the emulsion side away from you. I prefer to have the strips in the sleeves with the subject matter right side up, regardless of whether the numbers happen to be on the lower edge or upper. It's easiest to load the sheet with each strip in the same orientation if you're doing contact sheets, that way you're not continually flipping it to view the pictures right side up.

    Been there, done that. Loading 120 film backwards is not the most intelligent thing I ever did. By the way, you'd notice that mistake when trying to seal the roll: it doesn't work.

    Thanks for your help! Need to turn some of the negs around in the sheets since some of them the margin numbers are backwards.
