    You can also just find some old 116 or 616 film, and some (old or new) bulk 70mm film, and roll a chunk of 70 into the backing paper of the old 116 or 616, and get all of that wonderful huge negative in your pocket! Repeat until your paper disintegrates, should take a long time.

    Yeah, that reminds me of conversations on this topic about 15 years ago. Tell you the truth, the conversion is easier, the film better what with what we have now and the reels have a wider spool diameter. You also don't have to buy 70mm tanks and you can shoot color and send it out.

    Tomorrow I'm 3D printing some "end caps" I modeled in Google SketchUp. They will snap on to the ends of 120 roll film and then (hopefully) slide into the cameras - I'm doing a set for a 122 format camera and a set for 130 format. To convert the film gate I just cut some aluminum flashing with a box cutter, sanded it smooth, painted it with cheap flat black spray paint. I'll glue the strips into place with some superglue type stuff.

    If it works, I'll do up a little tutorial. If it doesn't I'll hang my head in shame and drift away :-)

    Any comments/suggestions etc are more than welcome!

    I would love to be able to use my old Kodak Folding Brownie 3A. It uses 122 film, I have a few rolls (6) but it is such a PITA to develop that I just don't use the camera. If your "end caps" work out let me know.

    Why not convert the 122 to like a 4x5 back? Would that be more practical?

    How do you develop it? Is there an old SS reel you have to scrounge for?
