Here's an alternative for when you ran out of 120 film to use!
Stuffing your Lubitel with 35mm in DIY seems like a lucrative task but not really. You just need to get yourself some rubber bands and Sellotape and follow these 3 easy steps.
Wrap around the elastic band at both ends of the 120 spool to keep the film intact (avoiding it to slant). Ummm, the photo shows two hair ties instead of elastic bands, there wasn’t any thick elastic bands laying around my area.
Tape up the 35mm film leader onto the 120 spool, nice and easy
Notice the film flap of the Lubitel 166B, the purpose of it is to keep a 120 film intact. Place the 35mm film on the flapper. That flap will keep the 35mm film in place and stable, no need for sponges or anything else!
This modification will work on similar Lubitel models, we all know that the Lubitel 166+ doesn’t need this, but hey if you got a the time and patience, then there’s no harm on doing this. In fact it’s fun! Now go out there and take some sprocket shots and spread the analogue love!
