120 film spool

1,00€

If you’re using the FAK Adapters to convert some vintage camera to the 120 film format you may need an empty 120 spool to use as take-up spool. You sure know that every time you shoot a film in 120 medium format camera, the remaining spool is to be swapped into the take-up chamber: so you always have an empty spool when you shoot a 120 film.

But if you buy a vintage camera (Brownie, Hawkeyem 616, Autograph, whatever…) for the first time and you don’t have another camera in the 120 format, you will probably need a spool.

These are simple original empty spools coming fromn Kodak, Fujifilm, Efke, Foma, Ilford and others. Buy one in combination with a FAK Adapter!

FAK 116 – 120 to 116 Film Adapter Kit
Use normal 120 film on old cameras designed for the Kodak 116 film format. FAK 116 is the Film Adapter Kit that let you load normal medium format 120 film in cameras made for the 116 film spools. The 116 film was introduced in 1899 and discontinued in 1984: it's extremely difficult to find, and it's obviously expired! This adapter features a stainless steel flange that perfectly reproduce the same hole that's in the original 116 spool flange. They are laser-cut out of a 1mm thick stainless steel plate. The plastic parts are printed with a very solid PLA organic polymer, which is even stronger than the 120 spool material itself! With the 120 film in a 116 film camera you'll get 6 panoramic-format photographs with a size of about 11x6cm (4¼ x 2½ inches). The KIT comes with four adapters, two for each spool in the camera. The one with a different hole is the “Key Adapter”. TheKey Adapter features a 1mm laser-cut stainless steel flange that perfectly reproduce the same hole that’s in the original 116 spool.
  1. Load the the empty spool (take-up spool) with two adapters mounted at both ends, making sure that the Key Adaper corresponds to the camera’s film advance knob.
  2. Mount the other two adapters on the unexposed film and put it in the camera.
  3. Insert the paper leader into the take-up spool and roll up a little until it's well inserted.
