I've got a question, would a normal 120 roll work in a A24 magazine?
I would guess no, but I don't know for sure.
I dunno if the counter wouldn't cause problems. cause one thing is for sure, the roll would fit in
but on the other hand, why are there A12 magazines if you simply could use a A24 magazines for both, 120 and 220 rolls.
It'll go through fine but it will come off the spool like when you wind off normally. Just remember to shoot only twelve - you will be left with 12 'blanks' but you can shoot them off pretty quick.
thanks, I knew I could count on you guys
The thickness of 120 and 220 are different. Depending on the design of the camera, this might affect focus.
does that mean that fp4 has the same thickness? (I mean 120 and 220 rolls?) :scratch:
120 has a paper back and 220 doesn't. I'd just do some test shots with the lens wide open and see if it's still in focus. The way the Hasselblad loads it might not be an issue. I was thinking more about cameras with a pressure plate.
I have shot 220 in an old non-A 12 exposure back with the peeping hole covered and it worked fine. Sure there is the issue of film/paper thickness but my pics came out pretty sharp and in focus. I have never shot a 120 through a 24 back though. I'm pretty sure it works well if you know how to use the whole 24 exposures.
There are many 12 exposure backs on E-bay for dirt cheap nowadays. The older style (non A) are even cheaper and they work great.
