    Hey, NJS, I did exactly SQ-A, shots about 8 shots, then noticed the film counter was still on 1. At first I thought I'd not loaded the camera properly, then when I got home I noticed I'd left the multi-exposure lever engaged. DOH! Live and learn.

    You can see each exposure if you will just multiplex. :o

    Is this like shooting photographs with the lens cap on?

    In the case of folders, a lot of people think it's better to wind before the shot than after, because opening the camera from the folded position can create a vacuum effect and pull the film away from the pressure plate. Winding on should take up any slack and give you flatter film. I don't know how significant this effect is in the real world, especially since folders aren't that great at film flatness anyway.

    The main thing is just to have a consistent routine. Even so, with any camera that doesn't have an interlock between winding and cocking, it just seems to be a law of nature that double exposures happen occasionally.

    If you don't yet have a problem with the second mentioned, you will, sooner than you think! Habits become more important.
    OMG, how do you know me? Are you looking over my shoulder? Are YOU my evil twin? Or am I the evil twin? I know, our wives met at WalMart and started comparing notes.

    The shutter is a basic simple type that re cocks after every shot. You can activate the shutter time and time again just by hitting the shutter release so that is one reason I forget to advance the film. When I got off of work this morning I stopped by an old cemetery near where I live and took two landscape shots and one portrait shot of a tall monument all on the same frame. Who knows, it may come out in processing as a good shot but the two landscape shots were just bracketing the same shot with different settings. It's just going to take time getting used to this camera.It's good to know that this is not just me, thanks for the input y'all.

    I've always left mine on "1", maybe it is an old wives tale, but that is the advice from the old timers, like on Graflex.org. It is easy to adjust if they do go off, though.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Carbon printing can use a neg of extremely high contrast -- I was using out-dated (1979 and unrefrigerated) Tech Pan. I purposefully over developed (by perhaps 100%, no record kept) in technol.

    Sometimes one does get lucky! Develop!!!!
