I'll admit to only having one of the systems (the 645) so I could be very wrong, but I would imagine that said mismatch is not going to align properly. Width-wise, maybe, but do they match top to bottom?
    They do not match.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    wiltw: Thanks for that, I hardly thought about it, I guess it must've slipped my mind. And thanks very much for measuring the different start film position for both 120 & 220 film..great help.

    ignatiu5: Dohh (slaps forehead). Yet another thing that I missed completely. Guess the bottom line is that it won't work eh?

    Well, here I go searching for a 120 SQ-A that's priced reasonably. Not that I have an SQ-A, lost out on it on fleabay, lost out on a lot of things these past few days...oh well..sigh...

    You can run 120 film through an SQ-A 220 back just fine. The spacing might be slightly off, but you will fit all 12 shots on a roll. I haven't even had to move the start point. "Shoot" atleast to shot 15 before you open the back to unload the roll.

    ive run 2 120 rolls through a 220 back on my bronicas. the first was a SQ-AM and the motor kept winding, but didnt advance the film past frame 9, so wasted film. the second through my SQ-A and hand cranking worked fine, but it did take a lot of effort later in the roll, which i found a little scary in terms of potential wear and tear on the gears.

    I have ran one roll of 120 through a 220 back with no problems. My daughter has ran many rolls that way.

    David
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower
