    Kodak still makes and sells 220 Portra films.

    I'm thinking of purchasing 220 Portra to use at the Art Car Parade next month. Not having to change film as often will be nice.

    I don't have anything to add to the Hasselblad discussion. I will be using the 6x7.

    Fujicolor pro 160s 220 for black and white

    For those talking about 220 b&w, I use fujicolor pro 160s 220 film, which I've been able to get on a lot of websites. It's not cheap (about 8-10$ a roll), but I find I can get decent results cross-processing it in black & white chemistry.

    Recently, I have seen expired rolls of Black and white 220 selling for over $10.00 per roll on the big auction site. I just can not believe that there is not a market out there for a fresh run of B/W 220. I really think the major film companies are missing the boat on this one.

    Anyone who can use 220 can also use 120 - this is the problem.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Here are 11 different [color] emulsions in 220, slide and neg, from 3 different suppliers.
    As always, check with the suppliers regarding their cold storage methods,
    and if the film is short dated.

    Marc, you are an awesome guy, thanks!

    Out of 8 backs for my Blads, only one is 220 for this very reason, rapidly shrinking film choices in 220 and none in black and white. The only reason I even bought a 220 back was for shooting aerials but now it gets used with Portra 400 mostly. I might buy a few more bricks of 220 E6 before it gets "CGW'd".....

    I used to use the 220 back on my Bronica ETRS when I went on holiday or a walkaround to avoid having to change rolls as often. When I went out with shooting in mind or my photo group, I usually loaded the 220 with a general purpose color but seldom used it, preferring the shorter 120 roll since it was unusual for me to take 15 shots by the end of the day. It used to tick off my buddies who would go through 3 rolls or so in the same time.

    It was not unusual for me to process a 220 short roll with around 1/2 of it shot. I do miss 220 but I used it so seldom, it is easily replaced. It might push up 120 sales somewhat and enough to maybe halt the discontinuance of more 120.

    Is it absolutely necessary to finish a roll by the end of the day though? Why not just continue the next day or later?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I have never understood this either, maybe that is why I have 7 x 120 film backs, not even tempted to blow through the last frames on a roll....
