    Haha, my dad and I fiddled with the backs for a good ten minutes trying to make sure I loaded the film right when I got my setup for the first time. It looks almost exactly the same loaded either way, but the way to tell is to make sure the end facing the dark slide is black. If it's yellow/white/whatever color the paper protecting your 120 film is, it's backwards.

    Also, artonpaper, I believe the default non-electronic speed is 250th of a second, but I could be mistaken. Anyways, that's the reason I'd prefer to have a Bronica S2a, but they're more expensive.

    "no film markings" no numbers nothing? It's not the camera or human error, lest the film be fogged 100% or fixed first... others said they say too.

    The no battery shutter speed is the fastest available speed (1/500 on my SQ-A). I believe the fastest is purely mechanical and for slower speeds a solenoid pulls some magic link to intercept the shutter closure, releasing it when the set time has past (though I've never seen an official description of the process).

    In Medicine there is a principle: "when it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and says QUACK!; it's a DUCK!" In this case a go for the film looking away from the lens.
