Newbie with SX 70

Postby AdrianCH » Fri 26 September 2014 / 18:00 pm

Hi There,
I have just received my sx 70 and have installed the film before the frog tongue. Can I install the frog tongue now that the film is in the camera??
Also which side of the film as it comes out of the camera is the side to protect (or both)??
Many thanks in advance for help.
Best wishes
Adrian :arrg:

Hi,

If you use an folding SX-70, you can install the frog tongue after you install the film.
(you need to use the darkslide (black card) to install the frog tongue.
After you need to protect the blue part of the picture. The frog tong help you, a lot, to shield the picture from light.
Fou de la photo pointue (RAW et compagnie), des technologies d'avenir (Lytro,...), je suis retombé dans le bain du Polaroid...
