645 220 Insert

Looking to pickup some expired 220, as well as experiment with the new Cinestill 220 that they're releasing, but I need a film insert to shoot it.

It looks like there are a few 220 inserts in the $25-$30 price range, but I don't want to deal with shipping from Japan and figured I'd check and see if anyone stateside had one that they wanted to part with.

You can use 120 insert for 220 film. I used to own the 645 system and I am pretty certain there is a small switch on the inserts that can toggle it between 120 and 220 format. So if you have a 120 insert, or can buy a 120 insert more readily, just a quick switch can convert it to 220. I would suspect the details on how to do that are somewhere on this site.

No longer needed. My 645 blew up and Iím thinking about abandoning my short affair with medium format.
