Today I used my recent purchase of a used Argoflex model E. I did a bit of research to ensure that the camera would accept 120 although it was designed for 620. The camera is in pretty good condition but it lacks the sport finder. So this morning I loaded the film and proceed to wind. And wind. And wind. And wind again. Something isn't right..shouldn't I see numbers in the little red window? So I open the back to peek and see that I had advanced past frame 2. But the indicators are not in the middle. I proceed to wind 3-4 turns, take a shot and wind another 3-4 turns for another shot etc. Although guessing how many turns to the next frame..I still kept my eye glued to the red window..but no numbers ever appeared. I have no idea what the pro shop will think or be able to do to create full frame prints. So much for my $$experience$$ for MF and ARGUS DAY.
I have a very expensive decayed light box aka Box-Tengor...that came loaded and the numbers appeared in that camera's window.
Scratching my head,
