    I think the term to consider is "proprietary", and that often has limits of acceptability in a marketplace.

Or are there spring back cameras (like the 2x3 Graflex you mention) that the Adapt-A-Roll will fit and a Calumet 120 holder won't?
    Thats it exactly. Adapt-A-Roll made a version for 2x3 cameras that is equally happy with spring backs and graflok backs.

    I think the Kodak Medalist is one of the biggest reasons to want 620 film to be easily obtained.

    Fortunatelly I have a draw full of 620 and 120 take up spools (amongst others) so I think I'll try trimming down a roll of 120 and using a 620 take up spool.
