You are missing the point. We want to play around with 35mm film in a Hasselblad not a Diana.
or in RZ67 or even in the Queen herself SL66SE
no, I'm not missing the point. I said "hack a 35mm back from a Diana". not using a diana. that's quite a difference...
And then epoxy the Diana to the body of a Hasselblad, Rollei or RB67?
Maybe 3D print something that sits between the Hassy body and the Diana back. Film plane distance would be even more problematic than having to crank the body and back independently.
I pay more for the same lenght film with type 120 than with 135.
Futhermore there is more choice in 35mm films.
I'm not too sure it's remotely close to economical here in Vancouver , 35mm Kodak B&W film is $14.99 per roll !
Yes you read that price correctly . Cheers , Peter
$US or $CAN?
^^Canadian , which still makes it ~$12.00 US . Peter
WOW holy crackers! Thats expensive. 120 is about $6/roll here.
have you seen this?
Peter do you mostly shoot 120 or 35mm?
As a person that had a Mamiya Pro TL land in his lap, I'm really curious about using these adapters with 35mm film. I have uses camera yet and I'm still trying to figure out the ins and outs of it. Has anybody used the adapters in I'm here yet? My big question is how to meet her at the film wind so you don't overlap. I do like the idea of hacking the Diana unit to a camera like this although I thought that the HC 401 back could be hacked to do Panorama. And we, I hope I hear from back from someone that's helpful not telling me that I shouldn't bother because of blah blah blah... Thanks guys
Mamiya offered such an adapter for the Mamiya 7 camera. I have one but have never tried because I believe there is an idea it is hard on the camera's mechanics. Has anyone else heard this?
I might be useful when I want to shoot a film available in 135, but not in 120.
Perhaps you could edit your post to make sense?!
For loading take a clue from the Agfa rapid system transferring film from one cassette to another. It may
be possible to use a standard cassette upside down on the take up side. Losing film on both ends then.
Mamiya made a 35mm film back for the Mamiya 645 Pro TL body, this would work better than any DIY project. They are usually available on EBay.
That is the Exakta way.
The 35mm back does not, however, give you anything more than a 24mm x 36mm frame. I understand the desire for more of a panoramic option. The orientation of Mamiya 645 backs and inserts would, of course limit you to at best an image area of 24mm x 45mm .
What some want is the image is to the edge of the film including the sprocket holes, the Mamiya back will mask the film defeating this purpose.
Print your own. My public library will do 3D printing of small items like this for free. A friend of mine printed these for me and they work well.
