Yes, this is possible! In this tipster I show you how!
The first thing I tested with a piece of paper, I glued on the empty film spool, how many clicks I have to turn, so I have no overlapping images. There are about 90 clicks, which are four and a half turns. I oriented myself on the groove above.
The more I roll up the film, the less I made turns. The film is in fact getting fatter. Therefore, more film per revolution is wound.
But now to the beginning!
First, I cut off a small piece of foam that fit into the opening of the frame counter.
Then I glued a piece of black plastic with tape (it’s also black thicker paper possible) over the opening and the foam.
To cover the second hole, I cut out a larger piece of the black plastic.
Then it went to the film loading. First I cut two thicker pieces out of my foam to position the 35mm film in the middle. Then I glued the beginning of the film on the medium format film reel and put it in the Belair. Close the cover and let’s go!
The aim to catch the right frame is difficult and of course overlapping images result. So it is with analogue experiments.
Here you’ll find at last the best results:
