    I'm pretty sure you can still get a 220 Hewes from Freestyle (and I'm sure other places); it fits in a regular stainless tank.

    In theory, certainly.

    Would the market support it? Sadly, I think the absence of 220 product offerings pretty much answers that one.

    It surprises me that Kodak still produces color Portra in 220. There must still be enough film-based wedding photography to support it. I'm actually thinking of laying in a supply even though it commands a premium over two rolls of 120. Changing rolls every 10 shots can be a drag, and being able to carry twice as many exposures in the same volume and similar weight is quite attractive.

    Jobo 1501 reels, and 2502 (and the rare no longer made 2501) will take 220 film.

    Would the normal plastic Paterson reels take 220? I use it with both 36 exposure 35mm and crack it up to use the 120 format. I distinctly remember it "fills" all the way with 135/36 but leaves quite a bit of room when using 120......
    If so I might give those 220 Portra a crack at it.
    PS: To the photography gods out there.. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE B&W 220!

    The normal Paterson reels do take 220.

    Remember that the 220 Portra requires a C41 process, not the standard black and white process.

    I have a stainless reel for 220, it fits in the same tank as the 120 reel, no problem.

    Thanks Matt! I'm aware of the C41.. I just need an simple silly excuse to drive me over the edge and get me into C41.
    Carrying 20 shots (6x7) at a time in my camera does sound VERY appealing.

    I have a couple of the fat stainless tanks and reels for 220, got them just as kodak discontinued that size Tri-x, naturally. These are a larger diameter than regular tanks.

    Thanks for the heads up Matt! I did not know that the bugger was chromogenic.
    That tears it, it's going to Dwane's. I will stay with Tri-X and Ilford H.P+.
    The good news is I still have a bulk roll of the old Tri-X emulsion in the freezer.
    Kodak has stopped making Microdal-X, but I can brew the original Microdal myself.
    Digital anyone? Ha!

    The search term you are looking for is "70mm" I get about 60 frames of 6x7 per roll.
