    perhaps I'm a miser, but (after licking and sticking) I put the rolls into the empty package of the next film. I open them cautiously at one end. no need to buy containers, boxes or so. after 40 years of practice one doesn't even think about it. works for 35mm as well.

    kind regards

    I like them and buy a few every time I make an order there.
    I don't see this on their website. They do have them for 35mm, but not 120

    Or if you buy Adox film in 120, it comes with the canisters! No need to buy 'em separate.

    Yep, and the Adox canisters are preferable IMO. Simple design with a pop cap. Not some weird space-age looking bulky corkcrew thing.

    WOW. Since when did people START their photographic education shooting with hasselblads...?? It wasn't that long ago in my memory when you had to take a second mortgage on the house to get one... guess times have changed.

    If you learned on the job in a studio, loading Hasselblad magazines was about the first photographic task you had to learn. Right after, how to sweep the floors, clean the bathrooms, etc.

    I used to do that... ha! mag loading and darkroom flunky - printing for clothing catalogs... i'm just saying 'what happened to starting with more lowly equipment and working up'...?? seems kind of a shame not to have any 'next level' camera to look forward to and be blown away by....

    Thanks everyone. I did notice the sticky tab thing but I wasn't sure it would hold the roll of exposed film tight enough or I didn't pull it back far enough (HP5 if that makes any difference).

    I dare say I'll get use the regime (I find loading Leicas easy and don't know what the fuss is about). When I did finish exposing my first roll I was all rather sweaty palms about the whole thing which made me nervous.

    Regards,

    M

    120 film is not as fragile as you think. I've opened the back and found out that I didn't wind far enough, saw backing paper still loose and thought, "OMG, I ruined it!" but I developed it and it turned out just fine. In fact, my scarf once caught the release slider on my RB67 and opened the back when I was on frame 9/10 and the first 5 frames were perfect, some fogging on 6 and 7 and 8 was pretty much toast. That little piece of sticky paper holds it just fine.
