616 Adapter

The 616 Adapter is the Film Adapter Kit that let you load normal medium format 120 film in cameras made for the 616 film spools. We include a 120 take-up spool so there is no re-spooling involved. Simply apply the adapters, shoot and process!

With 120 film in a 616 film camera you’ll get 6 panoramic-format photographs with a size of about 11x6cm (4¼ x 2½ inches).

This adapter features a stainless steel flange that perfectly reproduce the same hole that’s in the original 616 spool flange. They are laser-cut out of a 1mm thick stainless steel plate.

The plastic parts are printed with a very solid PLA organic polymer, which is even stronger than the 120 spool material itself! Note that your adapter color will vary from the one pictured.

Adapters are very sturdy - do not force them or use the wrong end. We import this product from Italy, so adapters are not refundable and we will not replace adapters that you break.

  • Use the small red window in the back of the camera for frame numbering: take first picture at n.3.
  • Take the pictures with the frame counter at: 3, , 8, 10½, 13, 15½.

If the red window is not available, use the following instructions.

  • With the camera open, start winding the film until you see the big vertical arrow, then close your camera.
  • Turn the film advance knob 8 times (16 half turns) so that the film reaches the correct placing for the first photo.
  • After the first photo is taken, advance the film by 2,5 knob’s turns (or 5 half turns), and do this for photo 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
  • Then wind the film until the end: the empty spool becomes the take-up spool. Put the key adapter on it and go shoot again!

A little trial and error is to be expected.

If your camera has not been used for a long time, check that there is no rust, or dry grease, or dust, or dirt… The feed mechanism in cameras that were left unused for a long time could be very tight and cause a strong tension on the spools during the film advancement. Make sure that the mechanisms are properly lubricated before putting the camera back to work!
