This recycled 120 take-up spool will help save the day whenever you pick up a 120 film camera that's totally empty!

Because when you load a 120 film camera with film for the first time, it will need a 120 take-up spool in order to wind on the film. Note that this is only needed for the first time you load the film - after which you can use the spool from the first film to load the second film etc

Can also be used in conjunction with our 35mm to 120 adapters, allowing you to shoot all 35mm films with your medium format camera.

120 Film Take-Up Spool

Useful to be able to purchase the 120 Film Take-Up Spool, I purchased two as the price was very reasonable and this enabled me to bring back into play two medium format cameras I had purchased that didn't have the take-up spools present. These I can request to have back when using the Wonderlab, thus recycling the take-up spools for future film projects.


Dead cheap & always handy to have around; usually when buying vintage 120 cameras, they rarely have an empty spool inside.

Phillip Challinor

I have tried many 120 take-up spools in my life in my worldwide quest to find the ultimate 120 take-up spool. I have to say that this one, the brand of which escapes my memory at this moment, exceeded all expectations of exactly what a take-up spool can be. The marriage of 21st century, cutting edge technology and visionary design have resulted in something more than a 120 take-up spool. It is, quite simply, perfection itself. I may purchase another one day but such moments need to be savoured like an appreciative connoisseur and not exploited repeatedly like an adrenaline junkie with ADHD. In short, I can thoroughly recommend - nay, ‘implore’ you, to buy one of these.

Useful when getting into Medium Format

Excellent pieces of kit, I purchased two and they have allowed me to bring back a couple of older folding Medium Format cameras into use and experiment with 120 film

Very helpful

I decided to pick this up in case my new camera didn't have one and I ended up needing it straight away. I worked brilliantly and such a great price.
