    You may be correct but that is probably not enough to convince a manufacturer to produce a product in 220 as well as 120 (and it's fewer frames, not less frames!).

    I buy Fuji and Kodak slide films in 220. They are still selling it.

    It means I can carry twice as many exposures in the same space. Very important while traveling.

    I shoot 6x9 only in medium format. I vote for more 220! I rather carry my camera and 20 rolls of 220 then my camera and 40 120 rolls.

    I agree entirely Kodak exists to make a profit for their shareholders too, and they know their business or the company wouldn't have lasted so long, and they obviously don't think it's in their commercial interest to manufacture it.

    All of my 6x9 have a red window.

    Do you have something that does not? Can you tell me what camera it is?

    Maybe Kodak does not want any of the Portra 220 sales to be bled off by Ektar in 220. I know they are different films. But my last order was some Portra specifically to have some 220.

    I just picked up a pack Portra 400VC in 200. It will be my first 220 experience. We'll see how it goes.

    I think i can safely predict (assuming you already know and like the emulsion - i can't predict whether you will or not else) how it will go: you will notice that you have to change film less.
    Also that you have to carry fewer rolls of film.
