Fitting 120 film in a 620 Camera
I have this adorable little Kodak Dualflex II camera that I found at an antique shop and last summer I decided I wanted it to be more than just a pretty display on the shelf. This camera doesn’t sit taller than an iPhone when the viewfinder is closed and only has three f-stop options but my gosh, it is cute. It fits 620 sized film, which isn’t manufactured anymore BUT there is a solution. [Insert 120 film]
If you are unfamiliar with 120 film, it is commonly used for a lot of, what is referred to as, Toy Cameras: Holga, Fisheye, Diana, etc. Places such as Urban Outfitters even sell it these days. I guess it really is cool to like photography ;p
The actually 120 film fits into 620 cameras; however, the 120 spools do not. Below are two resources I have used to walk me through either completely respooling 120 film onto a 620 spool(if your vintage camera still has one in it!) OR filing down the plastic 120 spool to fit inside the 620 frame.
I hope this helps! I am looking forward to developing my Dualflex II film as some images were taken at the Seattle Zoo and some on a road trip.
