The other thing to remember is that a lot of films just aren't available in 220 these days, whereas pretty much everything can be obtained in 120. Trying to use one film in the other kind of back may not work, or even cause damage (can't remember where I read that, but Google is your friend).tasman said:Because of the differnt backs that are available, I was wondering, what is the difference between the size of 120 and 220 film?

I bought a used ETRSi. Just waiting for it to get here. I can't wait to start using it.
Thanks for the info.

This from personal experience. The 220 has half as much thickness as 120, (as mentioned above) but this also changes the focal distance. Not by much, but infinity will change, as well as the sharp focus ability of the camera. In addition. Warning to all who don't know but use the Mamiyas and blads. (fortunately the ETRS doesn't have as much of a problem). Putting 220 into a 120 wont affect it much, but 120 in a 220 back can damage the spring. Also, a 220 back wont stop at exp.12. A 120 back can be severe damaged if you try to advance it further than exp.12. So use the appropriate back.
