The cost of developing one over the other is minimal and you get a better picture from MF, so why even try to get a 35mm cartridge in there? If you want to shoot 35mm, just get a 35mm camera. They are selling on ebay really cheap now days.
    It is a way to take panorama photographs without buying an XPAN.

    Only if you forget that you create that same panaroma photo using 120 film, with extras.

    I'm with Ric: the only possible reason to run 35 mm film through an MF camera is when the emulsion you need is only available in 35 mm format, and the only camera you have or can get is an MF camera.
    That's why 35 mm backs and adapters for MF cameras are so terribly hard to find: there are too many people who know it doesn't make sense.

    Which is why I have not been chasing after one ...

    I was providing information to the earlier poster as to what the motivation is. It is neither an endorsement nor a rejection of the motivating factor.

    Whose motivation would that be?

    So it's just a reason to use 35 mm film in an MF camera you thought up, isn't it?

    I did not think it up. It was a Hasselblad product at one time. Are you getting hair implants now?

    And because they sold a back, you thought it would be the answer to the question why on earth one would want to use 35 mm film in an MF camera.
    I see...

    There are 35mm backs available for Mamiya 645 models that take interchangeable backs.

    As I see it, the reasons for using them include:

    1) some provide options for panoramic negatives or slides - good if you have access to more development options with 35mm film;
    2) some emulsions are only available in 35mm, and if you want to project 35mm slides ...
    3) useful if you want to use just one lens and shutter/need interchangeable backs and multiple formats (it's a lot easier to shoot 35mm in a MF camera than MF in a 35mm camera);
    4) some people have a pile of 35mm film they would like to use up;
    5) it is one of the easiest ways to find a 35mm camera that lets you use leaf shutters for fill flash work.

    There's a thing, yes.

    Yes.

    You can cut film to size, you know. Not just paper.

    Easier still: shoot MF film in an MF camera.

    Don't see how that would be a reason to run 35 mm film through an MF camera.
    To paraphrase something i read recently: it's easier to shoot 35 mm film in a 35 mm camera.

    How does that work?
    But anyway that might be, why run 35 mm film through that camera?
