Rollex backsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Hi! I've been using Super Rollex backs and just got my first Rollex because it was a lot cheaper. I was surprised to find that it did not automatically set the counter to zero when the back is opened and that the only way to set it to zero is by turning the winder until it reaches that point. Have I not found the secret to zeroing it out? Thanks.

You did it correctly. For Linhof Rollex 6x6, 6x7, and 6x9 backs (in both 2x3 and 4x5 formats and in both black and tan colors), you set the counter to zero manually. This is my experience. Cheers,
