    Here's what I've just been given..

    A sealed single container of Fujifilm Neopan ISO 400 it also has the number 120 on it, not sure if that's the number of exposures? Expiry 12/2008

    A sealed roll of Kodak EKTAR 100 again it says 120 no expiry date I can see, ISO possibly 100 based on...

    A box of 5 Kodak EKTAR 100 again 120 ISO 100 with an expiry date of 02/16

    They've been stuck in a cupboard, they're all sealed but I'm not vouching for the condition etc. But I can drop them in my bag and bring them Saturday if they're any use to you or anyone you know

    I now realise120 isn't the number of shots so not sure how many shots but as I say I don't vouch for them. A friends nephew moved into a new place and found them in a cupboard so he passed them to me since he thinks I know something about photography (On the basis of seeing my G16) rather than just throw them out Gray said if he couldn't use them he knew someone who might

    120 is the film size, from the original Kodak type number, the same way that the standard 35mm cassette is 135. I think it's now probably the only medium format rollfilm size available, though there may be some 220 (twice as long, but only usable in certain cameras) kicking around somewhere.

    See here:


    The number of shots depends on the camera format, 6x9cm gives 8 shots per roll, 6x7 10 shots, 6x6 12 shots, and 6x4.5 16 shots. Many 6x9 format cameras had masks available to reduce the format to 6x6 or 6x4.5, so getting 12 or 16 shots, and some 6x6 cameras also had masks, to get 16 6x4.5 frames.

    There are also some rare specialist panoramic format cameras that take 4 frames 6x17cm, or 6 frames 6x12cm. A few of the early auto frame spacing 6x6cm cameras, such as the Zeiss Super Ikonta, only got 11 shots 6x6cm on the roll, because the frame spacing wasn't that precise. Some later ones such as the Balda Super Baldax manage 13 frames 6x6cm.

    That probably tells you more than you ever wanted to know, but if your friend or their nephew asks you what it was, you'll be able to come up with an impressive answer!

    Not sure if anyone is still interested but I have just checked the negative from a Vista 200 and it was marked CA24. Does that mean anything to anyone?

    Especially the Neopan presto. That hasn't been made for years.

    I got some Verichrome Pan to develop, 118 format. That should be interesting...

    Sent you a PM Gray- they're posted 1st class so hope they turn up tomorrow let me know they get there

    Seems to be a lot of photographic recycling going on right now with me a friend in my local who is happy to say he knows nothing about cameras gave me a Sony compact he found dropped outside is front door a few months back in case I could get to work if not I could bin it

    I wondered if it just needed new batteries so passed it to a friend who's been wanting something a little better than her phone camera but can't afford it, told her if it worked great f not just bin it

    2 AA batteries later she's over the moon as it worked fine
