Brownie film advance? : LUSENET : Brownie Cameras : One Thread

Hi! Just got my first two brownies and I am getting ready to try them out and a question came to do I know how far to advance the film after I have taken a picture? Thanks in advance and any other input on using this camera is welcome. Trula

Trula.........there should be a red "EYE" on the rear of your camera. the film will have numbers. ( I use kodak Porta 160 ASA) After loading the film, you will see several things roll by as you advance the film. The 1st exposure will sneak up on you the first time you do this, so dont worry if you pass it and end up on #2. I did this my first time. Then just advance each time to the next number. I keep a piece of black tape over my "red eye" until i am actually advancing the film, at which point i remove it to see the numbers. I do this so that no excess light filters in and makes a cloudy pic. the newer films are more sensitive (especially color)

good luck
