    Oh! Okay, yeah should be normal after that. I would check with your sacrificial roll and make sure it properly advances through the end before cutting down anything precious. Depending on the winding mechanism, you might be able to score a few extra frames.

    Here's a thread discussing the slight difference in roll length and such:

    good to know, but I'll just go for it I think.
    all this precision is slowing me down...

    *looks for cigar cutter*

    Mine has the brand "Cigar Savor" on it. The one at this fleabay link seems to be the same one.

    I'd recommend getting a couple cutters and/or finding a good knife sharpener too, my cheap cutter started to go dull after a half dozen or so rolls. Still, compared to $10/roll for the 127 film, the cost of a cutter and a roll of 120 film is still much lower!!

    would you believe that I can't get one that size?

    in the last few weeks I've tried the UK, Warsaw and Italy... do you Americans smoke some sort of oversized cigar as compensation for something?

    I could, but ebay seems to find the idea that I have moved to Poland so absurd that they insists on sending everything to the UK, it then has to be posted again by the family, so all in all it takes about a month to get anything, not to mention the fact that stuff goes "missing" on the way too often to be coincidence...

    I'll just have to keep looking and hope that 120 film doesn't disappear before I can get one...

    I too could not find a cigar cutter with a hole large enough to fit the 120 through so instead I just bought a basic one for four dollars and using a heavy Fiskars scissors just snipped around the top of the 120 spool cutting it down to size to then fit thru. I also got a one bladed "guillotine" type of cigar cutter which worked great.
