Sorry guys I must subscribe to threads I post in!
Yes I do mean wind the film through the camera with the shutter open. My favourite shots so far (done in 1995&6) were full films ie 720mm long

The series I'm planning are day light and shorter so that I have some chance of getting them printed one day. 📷

My first collected camera was a Franka Solida II - my first was a Voigtlander Vito B. An excellent camera.
