    As for me, I get nice prints from a really great custom lab, may consider getting a scanner.

    I used to use 220 film. And my favourite film is still available in 220 today, so i would again.
    But i do not so much anymore since i have to pay not twice, but three times as much as for the same emulsion in 120 at my suppliers. Used to be, long time ago, that a roll of 220 was even cheaper than two rolls of 120. It wouldn't surpirse me that the increased price of 220 where i get it from is due to it being a slow mover in the market.
    I like the convenience of fewer rolls for trips, but not that much.

    the thing I like about 220 vs 120 now though is this:

    developing price per roll. Most labs will process 120 and 220, but 220 is generally only 50% more price-wise. This is great when you are shooting for clients(like most of the people I assist for, those who are still shooting film), because it allows more shots to be taken, with a smaller budget for processing/scanning.

    220 is great too if you like to shoot your MF camera like a machine gun . I do sometimes, and a 220 rolls can sometimes only last a minute or so !!!

    but the real answer is this: IF WE WANT 220, WE NEED TO SHOW THAT WE WANT IT(I.E. BUY IT!!!!) kodak and fuji will need to make more if we buy and shoot as much as possible.

    Dan,

    You speak my language

    The lab that I use... 220 vs 120 is actually less than 50% more per roll for processing, that means more shots/less time in changing magazines... better budget control... cash wise and time wise.

    I too, use my ELX in "A" mode. Nothing and I repeat, nothing is more annoying than changing magazines 4x a minute (with an A12 mag), Nothing and I repeat nothing is more likely to kill the mood of a good spontaneous shoot, than annoucing to one and all, "Excuse me, while I change magazines... I'm out of film"

    I find that, barring fashion, MF for me is a more contempative meduim. When doing portraits I find that 12 shots is a good run for me before an adjustment in hair, outfit or makeup.

    I am hard pressed to put a roll of 220 though my camera in a day of wandering around at my own pace shooting.

    I do travel with an XA and a 35mm rangefinder or slr in the same bag as the mamiya 330f I lug on these sort of days.

    I should I suppose shoot it faster, since I have a stash of about 40 220's and 300 120 rolls in the freezer at the moment.
    my real name, imagine that.

    According to the latest list I have from Kodak and my contact at Fuji, I'm pretty certain there are only two 220 films left in production - Portra 160NC and 400NC.

    Matt,

    Within the last few years I have vague recollections of the Fuji colour neg and transparency films being advertised in 220. A format I hasten to add that I've not used, but would if available for black & white stocks. Especially 400 speed film in sub-optimal weather conditions.

    Provia 100F and Astia 100F are available in 220 in the U.S. They may not be distributed in other locations.

    Yes... but when you filter out the choices, there are only 8 "slide films", 2 of them are Kodak -100VS, the remaining 6 are Fuji.
    Is E200 gone?

    120:220 film sales ratio, is around 100:5. Or even 200:5, according to my limited knowledge.
