1) B II film sounds like "brownie 2", i. e. 120 film, doesn't it? I'm not sure this is correct. 2) Is is safe to assume that a 120 film camera will allways accept 620 film? Was there really a different version needed to use 620 film?

  1. I think that B2 was the name of the 120 film in Germany, a name at least used by Agfa and Zeiss Ikon, but I am not completely certain and that would need confirmation. I faintly remember having read that B1 and A2 were also film formats (something like 127 and 117 film, I think), again this needs to be confirmed.
  2. The 620 spool is thinner and slightly shorter, and the holes at both ends are smaller: the key that goes in the spool's holes needs to be specially adapted. I think that some cameras could use both spools, but not all of them can. :--Rebollo fr 05:41, 27 June 2006 (EDT)
By the way, the 620, 621 and 622 model numbers look like internal model names, and they certainly have nothing to see with the 620 film. I suggest to change the title of the page to "Rolleiflex Old Standard" because it is the way it is refered to in the article, and to avoid confusion with the earlier Original Rolleiflex. --Rebollo fr 05:48, 27 June 2006 (EDT)
