120 Film has been around for over 100 years, and countless cameras have been manufactured to make use of this versatile format. Along with its mostly defunct relative 220 and the also-ran 620, 120 film provides probably the best compromise between quality and portability, and has become my favorite film to shoot.
The size of the negative is directly related to the ultimate quality of the print that can be made, but the tradeoff is that the larger the negative, the larger the camera must be. 120 cameras come in all shapes and sizes, and each has its pros and cons. The 120 Project is intended to be an exploration of the cameras that I own that use this film. Some of these I have never used, and the 120 Project is a great impetus to do just that.
