    1920's Goerz Roll film Tenax

    I bought a nice Goerz Roll film Tenax 6x9 camera with Dagor 6,8/100 in january. It had an old wooden Agfa spool in it, so I guess it hasn't been used for decades. Today I loaded it with Pan F+ and took the first test shots.

    Ok, it's a simple camera, but the Dagor showed to be a good lens. Sharp and contrasty.

    The red window isn't red anymore, but almost uncoloured. It lets some light in to show up on some of the images. Does anyone know a source for red plastic foil? I guess I also could tape a piece of grey plastic over it (exposed film )

    Lithographer's tape is a quick fix for those red windows. It will eventually fade, but not for a long time. You might be able to borrow a bit of it from any place that does traditional graphic arts. An alternative is to use opaque tape, and remove it while advancing film.

    Thanks for the tip! I just butchered a scrapped Agfa Isolette and solved the problem. When there's no cover on the red window I always use black electrical tape.
