oldcam1 lg Using 120 Film in a 620 Camera

Dane sent in this hack of 120 size film as a substitute for older cameras that use the more expensive 620 film. It’s an interesting modification of the film canister that allows it to fit in the camera. I have a few cameras that use 620 film that I picked up on ebay for $1 each. [Thanks Dane!]

Literally all this involves is grabbing a knife and cutting off the extra plastic on the top of the spool, and then sanding down the lid so its about 1/16 of an inch in thickness. if it fits snuggly inside the camera and can spin, then chances are it works.
