    FIVE (5) rolls of 70mm Type II perforated Portra 160 for sale. Expiry 2003 but still good - those of you who've toured my space have seen my freezers... so you know I'm pretty serious about keeping film fresh. No likelihood of color shift but I'm still selling it on an 'as is' basis... great for Hassy A70, Mamiya, 4x5 rollfilm or other backs. $45 each plus shipping (shipping cost depends on where you're located). I'm in California.

    Also have the Linhof and Graflex RH-70 70mm film backs available for those who are interested.

    Hi - to cut a long story short... without meaning to seem flippant... any camera that takes 70mm film... generally these would be medium format cameras owing to the width of the film. But it's a 'plug and play' solution for any camera with a 70mm back... like those mentioned above. I guess it's a bit like asking 'which cameras can take 35mm film?' - well... those cameras that do... it 's a bit difficult to give you any kind of comprehensive LIST unfortunately...

    There are a TON of cheap Hasselblad backs for the film type... they tend to sell for around USD 50 these days... you'll get a LOT of shots out of one of these rolls. You'll need cassettes and a bulk loader to do so however (though if you're deft in the dark, you can probably get away without the loader)
