    I think you can also at least get Portra 160 in 220.

    No more 220 from fuji.Portra 160 and 400 are the only currently made 220 films,afaik.

    Keep the 220 backs so you can do panos with 35mm film.

    I gather this means Kodak 160 and 400 won't work for you...

    I just wish they would cut a small break on 220 considering it must be a bit cheaper to package.

    I guess I should be happy it's available at all.

    Kodak Portra 400 and 160 are made in 220, I think Ektar might.

    Doesn't matter anyway, you can just flip the pressure plate to 120..

    BTW, the 645 is a good camera, the AF is dog s*** and it's made out of plastic, but the lenses render really nice. I use mine for weddings :smile:

    There is still Provia 100F, Astia 100F, Velvia 100, and Velvia 50 available, but you have to import it from Japan. It will cost you arm and leg.
