620 film was first brought to market by Kodak in 1932. It has exactly the same image dimensions as the better-known 120 film, but the spool is slightly different. This means that 620 film cameras can’t accept the 120 spool.
Kodak had intended that 620 film would replace 120, but this never materialised. Despite 120’s dominance across the 20th century, the big suppliers only stopped production of 620 film in 1995. Fortunately, for box camera lovers all around the world, this wasn’t the end of the format and you can still buy 620 film today. There are now a couple of small independent manufacturers who hand-roll 120 film onto 620 film spools.
So if you have an old box camera or vintage folding camera that doesn’t quite accept 120 spools, buy 620 roll film from our selection below and breathe new life into that camera.
