    Hi guys I've recently started shooting medium format film and am wondering if I should load it in complete darkness or is it okay to load it in light? I've already loaded a couple in the dark to be safe but I'm hoping it's not that sensitive.

    You don't have to load 120 film in complete darkness but it's best to avoid
    direct bright light such as direct sunlight.

    B/n Bronica and Hassenblad, you load the back, once you insert it into the camera, you crank it up. I don't recall light/darkness ever being an issue.
    Welcome to taste of FILM. I miss it :)

    Ditto what Compur said. There is enough lead on 120 to avoid fogging. But, worth repeating, avoid direct sunlight during the loading.
