Load 120 film on old cameras designed for the Kodak 122 film format!

With these adapters mounted on the 120 spool, your camera will work exactly as it would with original 122 films.
No original 122 spool is needed for this system: you don’t have to respool the film from one spindle to another.

With the 120 film in a 122 film camera you’ll get 4 panoramic-format photographs with a size of about 14x6cm (5½ x 2½ inches).

This adapter features a stainless steel flange that perfectly reproduce the same hole that’s in the original 616 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!

MOUNTING:

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 122 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.

Description

FILM WINDING & FRAME NUMBERING

  • With the camera still open, start winding the film until you see the big vertical arrow, then close your camera.
  • Turn the film advance knob 10 times (20 half turns) so that the film reaches the correct placing for the first photo.
  • After the first photo is taken, advance the film by 4 knob’s turns (or 8 half turns), and do this for photo 2, 3, and 4 (the last one).
  • Wind until the end of the film: the empty spool becomes the take-up spool: put the key adapter on it. You’re ready to shoot again.

NOTES: The No. 3A Kodaks have a little red window in the back of the camera: it was used to read the frame number written on the film’s paper. It’s highly unlikely that you will see some sort of numbers or signs on the 120 film paper because of the totally different film format. But if this is your case, use it as a helper for controlling the film position in the camera.
A little trial and error is to be expected.
