As far as I know 3X4 format film is nolonger manufactured. You might be abble to find out of date film on E-Bay, otherwise you will have to cut down 4X5 film to fit your camera.

Um, er, ah, taboo subject coming. I've been sitting on a pristine 3x4 Adapt-A-Roll (takes 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 shots on 120 film) for a while, meaning to get around to cannibalizing it for a spring. Sooner or later I'll solve the spring problem (need one for the one-way clutch in the wind mechanism of another A-a-R, anyone have one?) and put the thing up *******. It really is too pretty to kill for a spring, even though I got it for very little.

Don't hold your breath waiting for mine, but if you really want to use the camera and don't need to shoot on 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 sheet film you can probably find another one. My point is that there's more than one way to make an apparently totally obsolete camera usable.

Cheers,

Dan

Hello,

3 1/4 X 4 1/4 sheets are available through Film For Classics http://www.filmforclassics.com in T-MAX 100, T-MAX 400, and TRI-X. 25 sheets for $35 is the current price. Expensive but at least you'd be able to use your classic the way it was intended!
