The Rollei sl66e that i recently bought from a forum member here may have a film loading problem.

When you open the film chamber back door and remove the film roller insert, is the film frame counter on the side of the camera suppose to reset to Zero?

The counter on this camera stays reading "1" even when the back door is opened and the insert removed.

It seems that loading should be straight forward ie: put the the empty roll on the the top, the roll of film in the bottom, thread the film under and across the insert and into the top empty roll, attach the film to the empty spool, closed the back door and turn the knob on the film magazine until it stops. The counter should read "1" at that point.

Any help?

thanks,
Robert
