Acros was special, and I still have about sixty rolls of 120 as well as about 20 rolls of 35 bought at $1.95 years ago. The high prices made me stop buying more several years back, but I sure am sad...

approximately one per three rolls of 120, and oddly one in four from my 35. I wonder why my 35's are so rarely chosen for printing, and have no idea why the 120's are printed o much more often.

It turns out that you are all correct in that it will not fit. The back is half the thickness of a 4x5 filmholder so the whole idea stops here.

I will likely return the rollfilm adapter but am...

safelight plug on 500H head?

Does anyone know what the style of safelight plug on the Ilford 500 is called and where they can be bought? It seems to be some sort of strange and perhaps proprietary outlet. I can't find any...
