My first ever 120 film has been loaded!


I am really excited!!!!

Can 120 film do doubles? As in, after I finish the roll, I take it out and load it into another camera? Like the Diana???

Please let me know! Cheers!

    You can double the 120 film, but as you need to rewind the roll to do doubles, you need to go in a dark place/dark room to rewind the film manually... it's easy with the Lubitel+ as this camera has the possibility of rewinding a 120 film... But you can also try some "simple" 120 shots first, before trying some doubles...
    Have fun by shooting your first 120 film!

    Okay! I'm not planning on using the first roll for Doubles yet. :) Just thinking ahead :p
    As for my Lubitel, it's the old 166B. Do I rewind it back onto the original spool in the dark room? Or, can I shoot backwards from 12 to 1 instead?? :p

    you need to rewind back into the original spool in a darkroom or use a changing bag. :)

    @coolsigg OK! Thank you! I will try 1 roll of "normal" shots first :D hehe. Thanks!
