FAK 616 – 120 to 616 Film Adapter Kit
Load 120 film on old cameras designed for the Kodak 616 film format!
FAK 616 is the Film Adapter Kit that let you load normal medium format 120 film in cameras made for the 616 film spools (cameras like old Kodak SIX-16 or Brownie). The 616 film went out of production in 1985 and are extremely difficult to find, and if found are expensive and and obviously expired! No original 616 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 616 film camera you’ll get 6 panoramic-format photographs with a size of about 11x6cm (4¼ 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!
Kodak box Brownies, Kodak Brownie Special Six-16, Kodak SIX-16Model C, Kodak Jiffy Six-16, and also some Agfa and Ansco boxes and folders, or even the Seneca 2A Box Scout. Every 616 camera can be converted: please read the list of compatible cameras at the bottom of this page.
The KIT come with four adapters. The one with a different hole is the “Key Adapter”.
- 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.
- Mount the other two adapters on the unexposed film and put it in the camera.
- Insert the paper leader into the take-up spool and roll up a little until it’s well inserted.
