Default 220 film back +120 film

I have tried my 220 film back with 120 film and I had no trouble .. all you have to do is widen the area between the pressure plate and the film back ,I used some sticky paper the same thickness as the backing paper ,and it all went well ,I had a photo shoot with a couple of male models ,I did have one female model but she kept running away ,so I was left with the boys ,here's two prints 10x8 Ilford fibre based grade 2 paper scanned prints ,the white dog was taken with the 120 back and the other dog with the 220 back both taken on my Rolleiflex 6003 and 80mm 2.8 planar PQ lens ,all the negatives came out fully sharp except a couple that was my fault .Click image for larger version

For Hasselblad A24 back (220 back) you can insert the 120 film and instead of winding the film to the usual start arrow, stop winding about 90 degrees of rotation prior to the usual start. You can now get 12 exposures on the 120 roll. Perhaps this is possible with your Rollei.
