    I've tried to find if I can use 120 film in a camera made for 105. I think the film size is the same, but maybe not the bobbins?

    Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Hi marek,

    If you're talking about the 105 film size mentioned at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/620_film you may be in luck. Sounds like the film is the same, but the flanges or bobbins are somewhat different. I hope this will help you.

    yes, you can use 120 in the Kodak panorama, it is good to have at least one 105 for the take up, but it will work.

    I use 120 spools in my Panoram #1 and have no problems at all. Good luck!
