    Before this thread starts a wild internet rumour, maybe the moderators could "correct" the title!
    Maybe "Fuji buys out Kodak film division!" instead?

    Yes, the basics of roll film photography.

    35mm still film stays on its original spool
    Reg-8 movie film stays on its original spool -- I'll admit it is very easy to accidentally double expose this film.

    120 still film moves to a spool you provide
    16mm movie film moves to spool you provide.

    Cartridge film stays in the cartridge.

    Fuji 120 spools with the tab and hole on the leader paper are one of very few improvements in the history of 120 rollfilm mechanics. Would that other manufacturers could adopt similar systems.

    It is almost worth using Fuji 120 roll films for that feature alone The fact that they are also fine emulsions is simply another benefit.

    A humiliation bump.

    Its not the worst post I've read, after all, I have 120 spools marked with film from companies I've never used. I just assumed the photo labs sent them to whichever film manufacturer. I hope, anyway. It'd be a nice recycling program.
