Anyone have an idea on where I might find some instructions or a manual (prefer online) for a Frank-Six? Neighbor gave me this camera a couple of years ago and I've finally gotten around to checking it out. It appears to be inoperable--shutter doesn't cock or fire----or I'm doing something wrong. Usually I can figure a camera out fairly quickly, but I'm having trouble with this Frank-six.
It is a rangerfinder, folder. Focusing is via a thumb wheel on the back of the camera. It has a Tosei 80mm 3.5 lens. It has Frank-six in script on the top housing along with a V and R. Serial number 1838 below the VR.
I like to use any cameras in my "collection" at least once before shelving it, and I think this one would be interesting to use. Not to mention I'd like to have a MF folder and this one seems to be able to shoot 4.5x6 and 6x6 frames
Any help would be really appreciated.
