I have a 70 mm Hasselblad back with a bulk loader and a reel and tank.
I shot mainly plus x which I bought in 100 ft rolls and which would be
because of that amazingly cheap.
Avedon uses plus x.
Irving pen uses plus x.
Or used.
Cant be all bad.
I still use it in 220. They don?t make it in 70 with Hassy sprockets
anymore. But I may go sprocket less. Get converted. I have to go to classes
