I have done a search already so if I'm treading old ground I apologise there didn't seem to be a specific answer to my question.
I've just shot and developed my first roll of 120..... yay...... and I'm pretty relieved to say it wasn't too bad - bit stressful but in time like the 35mm it'll get easier I guess.
I shot 12 pix obviously but only got 9 and a damaged tenth one. Here's the question - on 35mm you get the film leader to load in the camera and then to use when loading the spiral on 120 you're dealing with paper. Loading the camera was ok loading the spiral was a different matter.
Do you cut off the paper completely?, Or do you load the spiral using the paper (tried this it was impossible - too bendy)
I guess when I cut off the paper I fogged the last two & a bit pix taken - are you meant to load the spiral in the pitch black darkness then coz with the 35 mm you get the chance to at least put the film in the spiral.
I'm sorry this is so wordy I know what I'm trying to say I just hope you do too!
Pretty pleased with my first effort though - I know its practise
