    I've just read all the posts on this thread and it strikes me that all the wishful thinking, hand wringing and hair tearing in the World isn't going to to make it commercially viable for the manufacturers to make monochrome 220 film in a digital era, film makers exist to make a profit for their shareholders, not to enhance the art and science of photography, sometimes we just have to accept things as they are and bow to the inevitable, and be content with the fact that they are making film at all .

    Dumb question from a 135/126/110 shooter: are there any 220 only camera bodies? I thought most MF could take 120 or 220 backs. No 60mm wide bulk film? Rare as hen's teeth? I know I wish I could still get B&W 126 but it seems all I can get is color or try to bulk load my own.

    There are a few, but not many. One of the old Yashica Mat models is supposedly 220 only, but I doubt they sold many. I have never seen one.

    I cannot think of anything else that is 220 only.

    So if they aren't 220 only then I guess the question is, why not get a 120 back and shoot 120? It's kind of like being upset because it is nearly impossible to find 12-exposure rolls of 35mm film then, isn't it?

    I think the analogy would be more like being upset because 36 exposure rolls were discontinued and all you can get now are the 12 exposure ones.

    For someone shoptong a lot more exposures is easier.

    Yes of course I had it backwards... duh.

    I must say I used to prefer a short roll so I could finish it faster but now that I'm processing my own I sure like to fill up the reels! So I guess for processing too it would be faster to do 220 rolls. I didn't think of that...
