126 camera frame modifications?


Terry Martin
 

Hi All,
This could be the completion of an earlier posting attempt which my
computer (and its operator) may have fouled up.
Here's the relevant question: Since the frame advance holes in 35mm
film stop the film advance in 126 before a full advance to the next
full 126 frame, can the camera's frame window not be reduced in width
on SOME CAMERAS so that the advance fits right? I believe that there
are some 126 cameras where the advance stroke skips over some of the
35mm perfs looking for the 126 perf. Therefore narrowing the camera's
window might give a vertical oriented shot (like most half-frame
cameras) but work with a single stroke of the advance lever? Any info
out there? Help?!?!?
Regards/73
Terry
