    If you would like to see a 616 camera pictured, go here:

    And if you would like to see the results of using 120 roll film in one, go here:

    http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphot...88&ppuser=6479

    I've been thinking about running a couple of more rolls through this, with the hope that I would be able to send out a contact print for the current Postcard Exchange.

    Nice photo, Matt. Occasionally, I've been tempted by a Super Ikonta D on eBay. If real 616 or 116 film were available, it would be even more tempting.

    I have one of those arial plus-x 9.5" rolld from ebay, maybe some film could be cut from that??...I could give it a shot if there is any interest-

    are these cameras that special?

    my Kodak medalist is worth respooling 120 to the 620 spools because it has a great 100mm lens- I sure wish someone still sold 620 though.

    The Medalist sure is a nice camera. I know a fellow who has one and I've got to tell you, that is one damn fine lens on that camera. The rangefinder is easy to use too - very crisp and clear. He had his modified to accept 120 spools. The conversion isn't drastic, shouldn't cost much to have done, and works perfectly.

    Way too big. Unperforated 70mm. But then the backing paper and spools

    I have an old Kodak 616 box camera I got from my parents years ago. Once I found a couple of rolls that fit it in the late 70's and tried it out. The slides came out OK but were very soft focus due to the fairly cloudy plastic lens on the camera. I never tried re-spooling any other film for it. It now has a place on my shelves of collectibles.

    check this out, you may still be able to get your film.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    I think Film for Classics stopped selling direct and only sell thorugh the likes of BH Photo and Central Camera.
    You may want to sit down while you look at the price.

    But it is avaialable if you want it. Yes B&H is one of the sellers. Isn't it worth putting a few rolls through your Medalist n other classic cameras? You betcha!

    You can pick up a few old rolls of 116 on ebay and use the backing paper and spools with unperfed 70mm. Wouldn't be too hard that way.
