70mm???

Hey guys.

Just read something about 70mm film. Seems like people use this as a bulk loading option for 120 cameras. Am I right here? If so, can we use 70mm in a rolleiflex?

It’s pretty cool as a device goes... fun engineering.
Takes the fun out of a tlr for use if you asked me.

Yes 70mm film can be slit width-wise (it is wider than 120) and re-rolled into a paper 120 roll. Some emulsions are available this way on ebay, mostly color neg from China. I bought a 70mm respooled to 120 roll of B&W Plus-X Aerographic 2402 film from Beccini in Germany. So yes it is doable but rather labor intensive. Could go in a Rolleiflex or whatever.

Here from the internet is how you do it.

70mm to 120 film slitter by Nokton48, on Flickr

And some results with F2.8 Rolleiflex:

[quote=DKimg;2729253]I've dabbled in some 70mm film and Kodak Vision3 film (65mm). Wanting to explore even further. Have purchased most of the equipment online throughout the couple of years (ebay) but haven't completely made it working yet. Nonetheless, here's a frame from Kodak Vision3 250D film, hand spooled. Shot on a Rolleiflex 2.8F

There must be people out there doing this, you can buy the supplies online to make 120 bulk loads.
