    Is it possible to use 120 film in the Hasselblad A24 back? My A12 is away for a service and I only have an A24.....and a stack of 120 film.

    It is, but due to increasing frame spacing, you'll only get 11 frames on a rol.
    So stop and wind on after 11,

    Thanks,QG.

    After I'd posted this I realised it can't be a unique question and did a google search - there is plenty on the subject! The general opinion is that you can,with no problems,as long as you stop at frame 11,which is exactly what you said.

    Thanks.
