Taken from the English Wikipedia on Feb 1, 2006

I've copied the page largely from wikipedia, editing along the way to remove useless links, does anyone see this as a bad way of doing things if the wikipedia source is good?

There is no problem with this, on the condition that we mention it somewhere, with the revision date of the Wikipedia article. --Rebollo fr 05:06, 18 June 2006 (EDT)

Deleted a sentence

"Due to better control of frame space, modern 645 format cameras get 16 exposures per roll of 120." -> That has always been the case, even at the time of the red windows, except maybe on some cameras equipped with some primitive exposure counter systems. I deleted the sentence. --Rebollo fr 09:23, 2 May 2006 (EDT)

That's not what I remember or misremember, which is that earlier cameras needed two windows, using both to read each number (intended for 6x9) from 1 to 8, and usually getting only 15 frames on the roll; while later cameras had a single red window for the numbers later added for 6x4.5, and usually getting 16. (For some reason I don't understand, some recent Fuji models only get 15.) Hoary 10:25, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

Deleted editorializing on the Holga

It is not really supportable to call the Holga a "fad," as it has been in continuous production for 30 years (Wikipedia entry and text of interview with inventor T. M. Lee from Lightleaks magazine #2, pg.5). I also suggest that 120 did remain a common snapshot format in many less-developed markets, even as the developed world came to see 120 as Pro film.--Vox 10:10, 20 February 2011 (PST)
