    Thats really cool. I saw a different mod with coins, but this looks like it'll work quite well. Can you post the link or a keyword I can search for?

    Edit: On second thought its seems super simple, I just took out an empty spool and checked the dimensions of a roll of 35mm. The annoying part would be rerolling the film, or having to take it out of the darkroom.

    You could make two and takeup the film into an empty cassette.

    One of these works great in a 220 back for an RB67. I just use a piece of tape on a 120 spool as a take up, and unload the back in the dark.

    Except for the sproket holes and rebate letters what's different from just cropping a 120 negative?

    Some films are only available in 135 now. E.g. the HIE that I was using in the attachment. Neopan 400 is another example.

    Also, why waste half a 120 frame for cropping if you know you want pano...

    Besides that, it's fun and easy. And though I might have felt that sprocket holes and rebates are just a gimmick a few years ago, I am a lot more open to this sort of thing now that film is so clearly threatened.

    For me it is an ease of use issue.

    I have always viewed a sheet of 4x5 as also being a potential 6x12 panorama.

    I know a lot of folks insist on being able to print the rebate. And the sproket holes do add interest. So there is merit to the technique that I appreciate. But I have never understood the the idea that people have that they can't do panorama with existing equipment just by cropping.

    Sure dedicated equipment works better. But start where you are with what you have.

    Ok. Rant off.

    Shen Hao 617 back on a 4x5. Mine lives on a little Shen Hao TFC45-IIB with a 150 Nikkor lens. I can do vertical 617 as well as landscape and can carry a couple of 4x5 holders for a conventional photograph too..
