    I would settle for Royal Gold 25 in 120, not Ektar 100! :P

    Dear Kodak,
    Thank you for Ektar. Please make it in 220.
    Sincerely,
    Sysygy

    Take a MF shooters poll and ask them how many of them use 220.

    That would be unfair, because you cannot use products that do not exists. You should ask how many would use 220, or are using 220 of those products that are sold in 220, which is quite rare.

    I would like to use 220 in my Mamiya 7 for most films.

    And, as we know, it's not a matter of manufacture, but more like a matter of organization of the packaging and retailer chain.

    Like it or not. 220 is slowly dieing. There is not hope for a change.

    The only way to get anything more in 220 and keep it alive, like most things, would be to use it I am personally going to give some 220 a try. I have never tried 220. I do have the back for my camera but it has just sat. 220 is quite a bit of color for me to shoot though. I would be cool to see Ektar in 220.

    Like HRST, I want it for my Mamiya 7. Ekta made an interesting point about the back. The 7 is the only MF I have ever used and I thought everyone could use 220 easily.

    Most MF shooters can.
    Even if they need to buy a separate insert, or even full back. These things are lot cheaper than a pack of five 220 films nowadays.

    Indeed, and for the most part - 220 backs can be used with 120 film without problems (except if one forgets that there are only half as many frames as indicated on the counter)

    I think we're very lucky in this day and age that they are making it in 120 at all, and it's too much to expect when just about every manufacturer is discontinuing 220 film to expect Kodak to start.
