I used one of these for my last short and there is one thing I could never understand: why are the sprockets located on the top wheel of each section, rather than the bottom, since when using single-perf film, the film moves from left to right with the perforations on the bottom edge of the film (as when using a flatbed editor like a Steenbeck)?
Last time, I just turned the thing around, but the wheel with the frame numbers was not visible, so I had to keep turning it back around in order to see what frame I was at. I'm guessing I was just doing something wrong.
I plan on buying another soon, hence the timing for the question. Here's a picture. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
