    220 Is there any chance the new film companies will make it?

    So I'm wondering. Is there any chance the eastern European companies would make 220?

    I think Frank was refering to his own question regarding the length of a roll Dave.

    lol @ Dave, I think he means he's asking a 'stupid' question... not Nick!

    Never having used any 220, I'd GUESS, not quite twice as long as 120! (2 x usable area plus leader plus trailer)

    Okay, I apologize then I read it wrong....

    I guess changing the epmphazise, does change the meaning of the question..

    Hold on Frank, I can get the answer to how long a 220 roll is..

    A 220 Roll is 5 feet 5 inches long as opposed to a 120 which is 32 inches long or 2.5 feet, I only measured actual film length and did not include leaders and such

    I think 220 would be a curse for me
    I would get that shutter happy 35mm approach to my MF, the lack of which has often been its only saving grace...

    Who am I kidding - it would be nice! Do cameras need any mods to take it vs 120?

    Depends on the camera. Some have different backs or film magazines or inserts, etc. Some only require resetting the pressure plate. Some, not at all.

    What cameras you got? Somebody will know.

    If I could get Efke 100 and J&C Classic 400 in 220, I'd use them in my Bronica S2A (alas, the DaYi 617 back relies on the film window for frame counting, so I'll have to stick to 120 for that at 4 frames per roll).
