A thinner film would require a different focus adjustment just like a thicker one would.
    You must be blocking me and others. We explained the reason! It is that 120 is thinner due to the backing paper.

    No focus adjustment needed, as the emulsion side of the film always contacts the rails located at the plane of focus.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    With a fixed focal plain, thickness is not an issue.

    Why can't people accept the fact that Kodachrome is dead and move on ? why do they still "clutch at straws"?

    Quelle horreur... Here we go again, picking over the carcass of Kodachrome! Move along. Nothing more to see here.
    (elsewhere, a lively thread, again speculating on the Resurrection Day of Kodachrome, is in full swing...)
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    Sigh. Because we never saw it's like in another film, and likely never will again.

    Alas poor Kodachrome, I knew it well.

    Because even Michelangelo had a favorite set of chisels?
