    still not sure what you meant by "rewind." Does the 645 really rewind the film under some circumstance?

    I wonder the same. Why does it need a rewind...

    Not sure why either. Maybe they are mistaken. 120 film does not "Rewind" back.

    Yes, a mistake. No MF camera that I've ever seen that uses 120 film can rewind the film (there is never even a rewind knob for that on the camera). If it DID rewind, you'd have no way of knowing when the end of the roll was reached, as it isn't attached to a film cartridge like 35mm. The paper backing would probably peel off if you tried to rewind it anyway, then you'd really be up a creek.

    It doesn't rewind but on the last frame shot the motor drive winds off the rest of the roll and while shorter in time sounds the same as a 35mm camera that automatically rewinds at the end of a roll.

    I think "wind through" would be a good term for it.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    BTW, be sure to blow out the camera before reloading, as you probably got some fibers from the blanket in it.

    I used the wrong term. Of course the GA645 does not rewind the film.
