    Roll your own 116/616 film?

    Does anyone still offer 70mm film stock? I know Film for Classics used to supply 116/616 film and 122 film, but they don't seem to offer them anymore.

    Thanks!

    I don't know if any new production of 70mm film is still happening. I do know that there are plenty of sellers on EBay that do. Some of it is relatively new stock but most of it is old and/or expired film.

    Hope this helps.

    I did make one roll of my own Agfa D6 or Kodak 116 film format. It was fun! Since last summer I bought few original Kodak Verichrome rolls in 116. http://www.flickr.com/photos/26983280@N00/8105850884/

    It is - it is the same size as the wider, 70mm films.

    You can get it from Agfa though in most cases probably at minimum order.

    IlfordPhoto have announced a special run.

    hi chris

    i gave up on rolling film stock, and roll paper instead. i just cut it into strips, and tape it end to end ..
    i leave it rolled for a day or so before i use it ... modern rc paper is thin and in certain lighting conditions
    is about asa 25 ... ( and some box cameras have a yellow filter built in ) so it is the best of both worlds ...

    good luck !
    john
    ask me how ..

    To make #116 format I used 70mm Kodak Double X Aerographic film 2405. They are the same width. Rolling your own with out slitting the film is easy.
