Today we kick off a mini-series of Film Fun videos, in which I’m going to walk you through my first experiences in using and processing ILFORD black and white 120 medium format film.
I’m recording this brief audio introduction for release today, to let you know what’s happening, but for the following weeks, I’ll just release a small iPhone version of the video instead. Please come to the blog to view the full-sized videos and get links to the products required to develop your own film etc. If you’d like an email reminder when the following episodes are released, please subscribe to our newsletter.
Here’s a run-down of the entire Film Fun series.
- Part #1 – Loading and Unloading a Yashica-D TLR Camera with 120 Medium Format Film (video below)

Although I shot film for around 20 years until around 2000, I never had the chance to develop my own, so this whole experience has been very new to me and a LOT of fun. I won’t spill the beans on what happens in the future parts just yet, but as I mention a few times in the videos, I am sharing this first time experience with you, blow-by-blow, warts and all.
It’s not so important for this first video, but from next week I’ll also post links to everything that you need to develop your own film on B&H. Figuring this out was one of the largest hurdles, so I hope that will be useful for you too.
I hope you enjoy these videos!
