Week 276 - Folding Ensign 3¼
The Folding Ensign 3¼ uses the long obsolete 118 roll film, which is 3¼" wide, hence the name. The negatives are 80mm x 105mm. As the film is no longer available, I'm using 120 film, with the take-up spool "padded" to accommodate the narrower format. Using an old film/backing paper combination, I worked out how many turns of the wind on knob would be needed between each exposure, I should get around six negatives from a 120 film.
