    If yours does't have f/stops or focus it doesn't matter, its still a great camera to shoot. On the right side at the bottom front of the silver shutter release/film advance unit should be a small tab sticking out, thats the shutter cocking button. The shutter should self cock upon winding the film to the next exposure. You dont have to set to B or L to use it, just take the shot then push the button and push the shutter release again. You should be able to do this as many times as you want.

    I don't have to wind the film to take another photograph. I can shoot as many as I want on the one frame...at least, until I severely overexpose that frame.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning...It smells like...PHOTOGRAPHY!

    I have had some success trimming the edges of a 120 spool rather than respooling the film. It totally depends on the camera. With my Brownie Bulls Eye, I need to use a real 620 spool for takeup, but for the film I can just trim the 120. What I do is use a nail clipper and go around on each end basically taking off the last 1/8" or so until the plastic is about even with the film. It saves tons of time vs respooling and is worth a try.

    That sounds like a great idea. I've been searching the 'net for all different ways to either re-spool the film or just trim the edges of the spool, ect... I figure that I'll have a lot of spools after all of this. ;D

    Better to sell that 127 roll and buy two 120's with the money!!

    Make sure any lab you take your film to returns the 620 spools. It would be a shame if they threw them out and you had to find replacements.
