    Well, I have recently discovered that my Brownie Jr can in fact, without modification, accept modern 120. I am looking for a film which will give fairly good colors, but not in a super vibrant way, for an old time-ish look. For this I am thinking about Porta 160NC. What do you think?

    Also, the Brownie Jr's two apertures... is it f8 and f16 or f16 and f22?

    I think there is enough latitude in NC160. Try a roll. That is the best way to know.

    The two apertures are probably f11 and f16. Enjoy, they're fun cameras!
