    The A24 back can be used with commonly available 120 film with a few small caveats:
    – If you start the film on the arrow, then the twelve frame will be very close to the end of the film. This is because the film is transported at a very slightly greater rate in a 24 back
    – The gaps in between the frames are greater , and get larger as you go through the film
    – You will need to remember to stop shooting after the 12th frame!

    In The Hasselblad Manual (second edition) by Ernst Wildi, there is a description of how to use 120 film in a 220 magazine:
    120 roll film can be used in a A24 magazine. The spacing, however, becomes becomes somewhat wide towards the end of the roll but all twelve images still go on the film. The first image is very close to the paper leader. To place it a little further away, move the black line with arrows about 5mm past the red index. Although the A24 magazine is not designed for utmost quality with 120 film, the images are satisfactory for anything except the most critical work.

    We are confident you will find the results 100% satisfactory. If you are not happy then please return the item and we will even pay your return postage!

    This back has a matching insert. Backs and inserts were finely adjusted as a pair at the factory, to ensure a perfect image. The inserts were marked with the serial number so that they could be identified.
