    Ken, Thanks for the tip to 'speed up' the shutter. I'll have to give that a try. 1/40 is definitely causing me sharpness problems.

    I'm using a Target Six-20. I find it a pain to respool the 120 onto 620 spools, but it has been worth the effort. I use mostly Delta 100. Tri-X is a little too much for me with this camera.

    I am getting ready to try a few brownies that I have had for many years and never used: a Brownie Bullet camera (127 film), a No. 2 Box Brownie camera (120), and a Brownie Flash Six-20 (620). I have a lot of 120 size Ilford Pan-F plus 50ISO film, so will try that out also.

    In the dark ages before ASA and ISO film speeds, the 1943 Kodak Films pamphlet listed orthochromatic Verichrome's Kodak speed as 250, Weston speed as 50, and GE speed as 80. Recommended exposure for average subjects in bright sunlight was f/11 at 1/50 second. The 1948 pamphlet listed orthochromatic Verichrome as daylight ASA 50 with the same recommended exposure. The 1953 pamphlet listed orthochromatic Verichrome as daylight 64 and the same recommended exposure. A 1981 Kodak Master Photoguide lists panchromatic Verichrome as ISO 125.

    Ebay is very bad for your wallet, in that I'm christening a No2 Autographic Brownie with a roll of FP4 120 at the moment
    Two shutter speeds no less, 1/25 and 1/50, and an aperture range of 1-4.

    I was after the soft look so hopefully I'll get a result.

    Not bad for £11 to try out
