Hello to the group. I have a Six-20 Brownie Junior.Recently,I've gotten interested in wanting to get it out and actually use it.This group and all of the other information on the web has been a great help.I have found so much on adapting 120 film to 620 reels.It's been great. I have some questions. If you adapt 120 film to 620 reels and the numbers won't exactly match in the red window on the back...how do you know when to stop turning the film advance?Is there a set number of times?
Also,I have another box camera and can't find anything about it on the web.A Kewpie No.2,made by The Conley Camera Company Rochester,Minnesota. It appears to operate just like the Kodak. It looks a bit older than the Brownie that I have. Can anyone on the group tell me about this camera? Take a look....
It's ironic..to me anyway..I took the picture of these camera with a Kodak DC 25 digital camera..not the best resolution...I'm sure the Brownie would take much better pictures! (Brownie $5...DC 25 $250...hmmm..he he) Thanks again to everyone. Marc

You got me as to the Kewpie camera, but the lack of info on the net may suggest that you have a rare camera. I wonder if it is related to the Kewpie dolls that you used to be able to win at carnivals? As for rolling your own 620 film, I really don't know how much you'll save over Film For Classics prices, and if you roll it yourself, you pretty well have to develop it yourself.

Dev'd a lot of film in my time, yet to see a roll of 120 where the numbers wouldn't line up in a 620 camera. By definition, if the numbers on some films line up, they all must, else the film wouldn't work in a 120 either.
