The film I ordered came quicker than expected. Pleasantly surprised.

Brings life to Kodak Medalists... but be careful

This film is rewound 120 film. That means it's the same film physically as the 120 film you'd use in a Mamiya 645 / 67, Pentax 645 / 67, etc., but the spool is different. My Tri-X 400 came pre-wound to resemble a 120 spool, and in a nice little black canister. I get 8 shots of 6x9 medium format prints per roll from this film. This film works in the Kodak Medalist and Medalist II and any 620 camera... but be advised, 620 film has to be ABSOLUTELY perfectly wound in order to work in the Medalist and Medalist II as these are precision cameras. Thankfully, the 2 rolls of Tri-X 400 were close enough to fit in the feed side, but the plastic reel makes it hard to take out once the take up reel is completely fed. I had to use a spare reel as a lever to fish out the film. The film scans OK, it's grainy (it's Tri-X and not T-Max), but it's not as grainy in medium format as it is in 35mm. I find that I enjoy shooting it most using a yellow or dark yellow filter and having to eat 1 to 1 1/2 stops. It has incredible latitude, only underexposing when I was off by 2 stops, but never failing to let me down if I overexpose. If you have a brownie, tourist, vigilant, or a Medalist, this is your B&W film to make sure the camera works. It's forgiving, and in medium format, a bit sharper than you remember in 35mm.

Amazing

I was so happy to find that someone could make 620 cameras useable again. Ive had a few old Kodak cameras sitting on the shelf and finally found this. It is wonderfully crisp on the 120 format film as well. If you feel nostalgic and want to visit older cameras, pick it up.

Do you love B&W film?

My roots in photography go back to 35mm B&W Tri X. I am very happy to find Kodak and B&H still supply this great film. I use this in my dad's 1962 Kodak Duaflex IV camera and am thrilled to see the wonderful results. The film has great exposure latitude to make up for the age of the camera and the grain - love grain in my B&W film. Helps to give that classic film look. Great for art photography.

Worked great!

This worked great in my old Kodak Tourist camera. The only negative I can mention is that it is quite a bit more expensive than a roll of 120 (which is really all it is).

Convenient

This roll is amazing because it's the size of 120mm, but the spool is a different size. It's very convenient, wonderful product. I recommend it!

Nice packaging

I thought I was purchasing 120 roll film. I'll be more careful next time.

Excellent

I shoot this in a 1930’s folding Brownie. It’s a great film. Processed at home. Never an issue.

question

I just got a roll of this for an Old Kodak tourist camera. It comes so wrapped up. Do I have to load the camera with the film in the dark?
Asked by: Anonymous
It is recommended to load this film in as dark as possible of a location as possible. You will definitely want to avoid direct sunlight.
