Hi, definitely don't open the back until you've wound the film back into the canister. What model is it? I'm sure someone will help.

Hello,

You don't rewind 120 film. It has a paper backing to protect it. At the end of the roll you crank the lever a few times to ensure the roll is all the way in the take up spool. There is typically a sticker or tape that says EXPOSED you use to keep it from unwinding. You take it out and the swap the empty spool on the left to the right so you can load the next roll.
Hope this helps.

*EDIT* found this video on Youtube:

Thanks,

Here is a link to the 6x7 manual:

Pentax 6x7 Manual

It goes over film loading/unloading.

I recall drooling over this and a Mamiya but both were out of my price range. Did loading or unloading need to be done in the dark? With no canister, how did light not ruin the film?

Hello,

120 Film has a paper backing that protects the film. The paper has a long leading and trailing extensions that as long as it is properly wrapped around the spool (at the beginning and at the end) it is safe to work outside of darkness. Of course if you open the back mid roll it will be ruined.

Thanks,

Thank you for that! As you described it, I started to remember my dad's camera that used something similar, back in the early 1960s or before.
