ME Super question

I am scanning lots of old negatives, some from an ME Super and some from a Zoom 70. I can't remember which is which, but the strips give the clue - if I hold them up with the numbers reading left to right along the bottom (the right way round!) some of the films have the images the right way up, and some inverted.

Now if any of you know what the ME Super (or the Zoom 70!) does I'll be able to work out which is which! Unfortunately all the recent film from the ME Super is slides, so I can't check without damaging a mount which I don't want to do.

My zoom 90 inverts the image, compared to an SLR because of the way it loads the film. If I hold the negative in a way I can read the info like "KODAK GOLD 100" and the number of the frame, the images from my zoom 90 are upside down and the SLRs are upright.
Hope this helps!

In the ME Super you put the film canister upside down; but the image is also upside down so the numbers should be on the same orientation as the image

In the iq-zoom cameras the canister is right-sde up so it should give upside-down images

Thanks all, that makes sense - I've just gone from the ME Super images (orientation of image matches numbers) to the Zoom 70 (orientation is inverted).
