    I find it interesting that 220 commends a premium at B&H. I'm in Japan right now and 220 film is fraction cheaper than 120. There's stock of velvia, provia, fuji pro160/400 and 160/400 portras. Maybe something else I have missed as well.

    Makes me wish that I had a camera which takes 220 film. Might be time to get a 220 back for my hasselblad.

    I found developing 220 film with a Paterson reel inconvenient. The Ilford 220 b&w film felt even thinner than the Kodak stock. The nicest way to do regular tank and reel developing of 220 is with a Nikor wide spaced 220 tank and reel set. They are available on eBay and like most accessories for 220 film sell for much lower prices now. Very few people are interested in 220 backs or inserts at any price.

    I've processed Velvia 50 220 with a Patterson Super System 4 reel and tank, and it worked just fine.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I used 220 film in B&W in the 1980's and had no problem loading it into Paterson System 4 reels and there was no bit left over sticking out. There is/was a Spanish manufacturer of tanks & plastic reels which were often sold under various names - the reels could also take 220 films and I found the reels were, for me, actually easier to load than the Paterson ones.
