    Yes, a No. 2 Brownie uses 120 film.

    Another thought for film choice: You
    might consider Tri-X developed in
    Diafine. The combination gives you
    tremendous exposure latitude -- you
    should get printable negatives when
    exposed anywhere from EI 100 to
    EI 1600. You can shoot pretty much
    anywhere you can find decent light.

They're great for eating through 120 at 8 exposures per roll, but they're also good for beginners contact printing and the alt processes.
