UNIVERSAL ROAMER 63 120/620 6X9 FILM FOLDING CAMERA

WE HAVE FOR AUCTION THIS UNIVERSAL ROAMER 63 6X9 120/620 FILM FOLDING MEDIUM FORMAT CAMERA IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT COMES WITH A UNIVERSAL SYNCHROMATIC SHUTTER, THE SHUTTER BLADES ARE OIL FREE AND THE SPEED SETTING ARE B-1/25-1/50-1/100-1/200. THE SPEED SETTINGS SOUND CORRECT AND ARE CONSISTENT FOR THEIR SETTINGS BUT I CANNOT VERIFY THEM BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE A SPEED TEST METER. T IS ALSO A PC CONNECTOR FOR A FLASH ON THE SHUTTER AND A HOT SHOE ON THE CAMERA. THE LENS IS A UNIVERSAL COATED ANASTIGMAT 100MM f/6.3-8-11-16-22 APERTURE SETTINGS. THE LENS IS VERY CLEAR AND CLEAN WITH OUT ANY SCRATCHES FUNGUS OR HAZE. THE CAMERA HAS A WAIST LEVEL VIEW FINDER FOR EITHER VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL VIEW EXPOSURES. T IS ALSO AN EYE LEVEL VEW FINDER FOR MORE CANDID SHOTS, BOTH OF THE VIEW FINDERS ARE VERY CLEAN AND CLEAR FOR EASY VIEWING. THE BELLOWS IS NICE AND SUPPLE WITH OUT ANY LITE LEAKS. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO WORK PROPERLY THE OPEN LATCH BUTTON WORKS FINE YOU PRESS IT AND THE FRONT OF THE CAMERA UNFOLDS TO ITS OPEN POSITION AND YOU THEN PUSH DOWN ON THE SIDE ARMS TO HAVE IT LOCK INTO PLACE. TO CLOSE UP THE FRONT YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE LEVER ON LEFT OF THE BELLOWS AS YOU LOOK AT THE FRONT OF THE CAMERA AND IT FOLDS BACK UP AND ALL YOU DO IS SNAP IT SHUT. THE LEATHER ON THE CAMERA IS INTACT AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR A CAMERA THIS AGE AND SO IS ALL THE STAINLESS FINISH. THIS WILL MAKE A NICE CAMERA TO START IN MEDIUM FORMAT OR IT WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO SOMEONE'S COLLECTION. IT ALSO COMES WIT A INSTRUCTION MANUAL, A LEATHER FIELD CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION+, ITS ORIGINAL BOX.AND 3-620 FILM SPOOLS. T IS ANOTHER USE FOR THIS CAMERA PLEASE READ BELOW..........

T IS ALSO ANOTHER USE FOR THE UNIVERSAL ROAMER 120/620 FILM CAMERA. THREE 620 SPOOLS (SEE LAST PHOTO)COME WITH THE CAMERA. YOU CAN ALSO USE IT TO SPOOL YOUR OWN 620 FILM IN DAY LIGHT. THIS CAN BE DONE WITH FRONT OF THE CAMERA FOLDED CLOSED OR OPEN . IF YOU DO THIS WITH THE FRONT OF THE CAMERA FOLDED OPEN MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT TRIP THE SHUTTER AND RUIN YOUR FILM , SO IT IS BETTER TO LEAVE THE FRONT OF THE CAMERA FOLDED CLOSED. TO START, YOU FIRST INSERT AN EMPTY 620 SPOOL ON THE TAKE UP SIDE AND A 120 ROLL OF FILM ON THE FEED SIDE AND FEED THE FILM AS YOU NORMALLY WOULD TO THE 620 SPOOL . FEED IT THROUGH THE WIDE SIDE OF THE SLIT OPENING OF THE 620 SPOOL. WIND YOUR TAKE UP KNOB UNTIL YOU GET A GOOD TWO TO THREE WRAPS OF THE FILM PAPER ON THE 620 FILM SPOOL AND MAKE SURE THE FILM PAPER HAS A GOOD TIGHT FIT ON TO THE SPOOL. NOW YOU CLOSE UP THE FILM ACCESS DOOR AND WIND THE FILM SLOWLY UNTIL THE FILM PASSES THE NUMBERS 1-THROUGH- 8 PAST THE RED FILM NUMBER EXPOSURE WINDOW UNTIL THE FILM COMES OFF OF THE 120 SPOOL AND WIND IT TO ITS END ON THE 620 SPOOL. OPEN THE CAMERA BACK DOOR, GRAB THE END OF THE FILM PAPER AND TURN THE TAKE UP KNOB ROLLING THE FILM UP TIGHT. NOW T SHOULD BE A PAPER TAB WITH "EXPOSED" WROTE ON IT AT THE END OF THE ROLL OF FILM. REMOVE IT AND REMEMBER HOW IT WAS ON THE END OF THE ROLL. REMOVE THE EMPTY 120 SPOOL AND TAKE OUT THE 620 ROLL OF FILM YOU JUST SPOOLED AND INSERT A EMPTY 620 FILM SPOOL ON THE TAKE UP SIDE. THEN INSERT THE 620 SPOOLED ROLL OF FILM ON THE FEED SIDE THE WAY YOU WOULD NORMALLY AND FEED IT TO THE TAKE UP SIDE SPOOL EXCEPT WITH THE "EXPOSED" PAPER TAB FED WITH IT. THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS AS YOU DID BEFORE WITH THE 120 ROLL WHEN YOU COME TO THE END OF THE SPOOL YOU WILL HAVE RE SPOOLED IT SO THE FILM WILL FEED OFF OF FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE ROLL OF FILM. I WILL SUPPLY THREE EMPTY 620 SPOOLS, THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO RE SPOOL TWO 120 ROLLS OF FILM ON TO TWO 620 SPOOLS WITHOUT HAVING TO PURCHASE ANY 620 SPOOLS TO START. IF YOU DO NOT PROCESS YOUR OWN FILM ASK YOUR LAB YOU WOULD LIKE THE EMPTY 620 SPOOLS BACK AND THEY WILL USUALLY GLADLY RETURN THEM TO YOU. THANK YOU AND SEE PHOTO'S
