    Bonica 135W Back loading instructions....

    Appreciate the earlier comments..... I see how to get the insert in adn out adn where the film goes...... the counter is what confuses me somewhat..... "S', presumably means "Start"..... mine advances about two full sweeps of the thumb winder and is ready to shoot and then starts counting a bit later on..... would really appreciate the proper sequence of evnets in loding this beasite!

    How many shots/roll..... 24 and 36?

    I can't find my manual, but had a look at the back.

    "S" means Start, then there's a bit more winding before you're ready to shoot. That's correct. Since I couldn't find the manual I'm not sure about the number of frames, but I think a 36 exposure film gives about 25 frames. Could it be 17 on a 24 exp. film? Anyway those numbers are marked in red on the counter.

    Loading: The cartridge goes in "the wrong way", at least it feels like that. Then the film goes over a roller through a sharp bend, under the window, around another sharp bend over a roller, and onto the take-up spool. When the insert is inserted in the back the cartridge is bound to "pop out", just stuff it back in. Start with the take-up side; it's easier that way.

    I think I advised you to wast a roll finding out how to do this - it's still my best advice! If you get it loaded correctly, you can expose it too, this is the ultimate confirmation that you're doing it right

    I just did a sequence of photos of the procedure (my wife shot her digi thingy over my shoulder while I loaded a back). I'll post a web page in a few minutes...

    I'll be back with the link.

    I posted a page with instructions (and pictures) for loading the Bronica 135 backs. You can find it here.
