    828 & 620 film

    Hi guys

    i have found a US supplier of the 828 & 620 film for a couple of my old cameras and i want to try them out

    the supplier is in the US the products total is only $24 but they want $46 to ship it is this not a bit excessive for a small packet to go from the US to the UK

    I cannot find a european supplier of this film can any one help

    Thanks

    Martyn

    You can load 120 film onto 620 spools. Its pretty easy

    $46 to ship a few rolls of films to UK is way too much. Ask the seller if he/she is willing to ship the film by USPS First Class International Mail. It will be around $10 - $15 dollars for a shipping weight of about 1 lb. You can ask the seller to provide you the custom form number and you can track the acceptance by USPS of the package. The seller needs to submit a custom form when mailing it. The number starts with two letters LC and ends with another two letters US and with 9 digits in between. I have sold a few small photographic stuff to people in UK. It is insane to make profit from the already too expensive postage cost to folks in UK.

    If the seller insists to charge $46 he/she is trying to make a huge profit from shipping. Don't buy it. You can re-spool 120 to a 620 spool yourself. It is fairly easy. You just need to have an additional 620 spool.

    What is the cost if you double the order?

    I'm surprised to learn that 828 is available from any source. That's very interesting.

    Depending on the camera, you can also trim the plastic edge of the 120 spool and have it fit into the camera.

    I have done this on my cheap Kodak Brownie Twin 20 box camera and it worked great, but it did not work on my Brownie Hawkeye or Argus Seventy five due to winder and spool hole compatability issues.
