Re: [Rollei] 120/220

The following was posted here several months ago.  I have the #1
modification.  Look just in front of the right back hinge pin, just back of
the strap clip.  There might be a little button there that can be slid
forwards.  If it is there, it should be moved forwards after the #12
exposure.  You will then hear a click or clunk and the counter will reset to
'0' (zero).


There are three conversion systems available

1.- the switch by the strap clip is available for almost all 3.5 and 2.8
cameras except T and GX (and all them crappy Magics - I am now open for
flaming) - Still available for about 100 bucks
2.- the gut and replace transport mechanism kit available only for the
cameras that do not already have the 12/24 bump on the crank side.
Sometimes available for about 200 bucks
3.- the 12/24 kit for the cameras that have the 12/24 bump on the crank
side. As far as I know this is no longer available, although some New Old
Stock kits may still be floating around.
