What I find interesting about the Omega reels is what looks to be a device to facilitate loading 2 x 120 roll film on a single reel. Now that would come in handy. Processing a roll of film in a plastic tank takes between 600 - 700 ml. to cover the film. That's far more developer than necessary for the 80 square inches of film to be developed and is typically enough to process 2 rolls. Being able to load 2 films on a single reel is conservative of chemistry and time. I've tried butting the ends of two 120 films and taping them together and it's not easy to do accurately in the dark nor is it reliable. Unless you get them lined up perfectly, you're looking at a jammed reel and possibly damaged film.[/QUOTE]
You've hit the nail on the head.. That's what is attractive to me.. I am using the tape method now, dicey at best.. You save sooooo much chemicals doubling it up.
