    Dumb me, I bought a couple of boxes! But they've done better than good customer service, Ektar is incredibly smooth and with E100GX they've got a solid customer in me. Shot several rolls in Zion earlier this month and can't believe how well the film scans and prints... could make wallpaper from 6x7's.

    Just bought a 5-pack of Ektar in 120.

    Where's / what does the start mark on its backing paper resemble? It's been a while since I've loaded any 120 film into the Hassy.

    I was one of those who boycotted Kodak, although I never bashed them, preferring to support Fuji's Velvia and Pro 160 lines. I was very happy with the Fuji until I was "forced" to buy some of Kodak's Portra 160 VC & NC as my local shop had run out of the Fuji in 220.

    WOW! The Portra films are a dream to print. It's almost as if my Super Chromega D Dichroic head was reading my mind. No more chasing my tail between cyan & red.

    I look forward to trying the Ektar 100 in 120, and I'll be happy to pay for it!!

    Thanks. Actually what I had meant to ask was where to advance the roll to frame #1 for those who use old 12 backs, with the peephole in the back. The answer is it's the same as Portra in 120: those double 1s that are easy to miss.

    Kodak has a standard for printing the paper roll and there is no reason to change from that.

    I picked up one of those last week. I haven't tried it yet - I need to sort out the sticky shutter.

    Is yours 120? mine is 116 and needs spacers to make 120 spools fit.
