It could be modified to use 120. I cut a 1/2 inch strip off the top of a sheet of 4x5 and it fits nicely, but then you'd be limited to "single shot" use.

Rollfilmback where available for The Bergheil, both 9X12 and 6,5X9 versions and they took 120 film.
The quest was a popular camera of the time, not a popular practical camera of the time
IIRC they even had some kind of quickload holders.
Hmm did the grafmatic holders exist back then?
Best regards
