Since I have only three spools it limits my picture taking with these old box cameras.
    Ironically I'm looking for some VP127 AND I just re-rolled a VP620 onto a 120 spool ... oh well...

    PS you can still get 620 fresh at B&H ... no lie... there's at least two kinds, maybe 3

    How do I know this? Well, for some strange reason (a moment of boredom perhaps) I decided to look at completed sales of 620 spools and calculate how much they were actually selling for. I found about 3 months of sales to average; and having done the exercise twice since then, I can now report the figure above as the average price per spool over the last ~9 months. It encompasses eBay sales of just the bare spools, and only those sold in North America. It does not include shipping costs, although I have statistics for that too. Anyway, here is a histogram of the data:

    This is some great market research. Ebay is all over the map for some items. Changes in description and condition alone can't account for it all. It takes me months of browsing and bidding before I get my sought after item at the average, or maybe the mean price. I can't decide if it's simply that people know they overpay and have more money than patience, or if they simply don't understand that these prices swing wildly.
    I confess I'm a gear nut within my price range. ;)

    The "fresh" 620 is re-rolled 120 - "Film for Classics" is apparently B & H's supplier.

    I keep a few spares, but throw them all out. I just tossed a bag with about with about 70 spools in it.

    Ahh that's why they are tin foil wrapped... Either way it's still fresh AND available.... No searching for spools

    I keep the spools and backing paper, there's a guy on here experimenting with a 70mm cutter, I trade him my spools and he cuts my 70mm into 120

    Right now it's a trial experiment though, about to test out my first roll today
