What would lenses for a 120film camera equate to in the 35mm film lens standard?
The focal length would roughly double. For example, if you have a 60mm lens for a Hasselblad, and managed to hack it to fit a 35mm camera, that same 60mm lens would be roughly 120mm in a 35mm camera.

I don't think they will fit any. The lens mount was changed right after the Canon T70. Someone told me they will fit a Nikon so I'm trying to find that out. (They don't fit Ni…kon cameras.). Canon T70 lenses only fit Canon SLR's (single lens reflex) made between 1964 to 1987.. The T70 uses Canon FD mount lenses. FD lenses can only be focused manually. All of the exposure communication connections between the camera and lens are mechanical. An EF lens will not fit onto an FD body.. In 1987, Canon introduced EOS cameras that use EF (electro-focus) lenses. All of the exposure and focusing communication connections between the camera and lens are electrical. An FD lens will not fit directly on to any EOS camera.. The Rebel XSi camera is a Canon EOS digital camera that can use EF lenses or the smaller EF-S lenses made for APS-C DSLR's.. Adaptors are available on a popular internet auction site that will connect an FD lens to an EOS body. The price in 2008 is just under $40, including shipping. Lens functions are manually adjustable only, and are not very convenient when used in this way.
Millimeter if you're American, millimetre if you're not.
35 or 50 mm in a fixed lens, or a 35-70 (approx) zoom. Buy the best lens you can afford, and learn to use it well before moving onward. It is better to become proficient with …one lens than confused by several. . Remember that quality photography is not produced by the camera, but by the photographer's mind. The camera is the tool that records the image, nothing more. A great photographer can take great photos with a disposable camera. A poor one will produce junk from a Leica.
We are unsure what you are asking. Most 105mm fixed lenses are about 3 inches long. The magnification is roughly twice that of a "normal" 35mm lens (40-50mm).
They should work on Minolta digital cameras, and possibly the new Sonys as well. Check carefully into the camera specs.
All EF series lenses will work with the film Rebel or any other EOS film body. EF-S lenses are not compatible with film cameras or full-frame digitals.
It depends on the brand of camera and the type of lens.. Most Nikon film SLR lenses will work (in manual mode) on their digital SLR cameras.. Many Canon lenses will work on …new Canon SLR cameras, but you have to check compatability between the camera model and the type of lens.. Sony purhcased the Minolta digital camera division, so all Sony Alpha DSLRs will use Minolta lenses.
To get the film out, if its not already done you will have to wind the film in. Under the camera there should be a small button, press that in. Now, at the top of the camera (…usually on the left) there should be a winder to reel the film back in, as i said if the film is still stretched across the camera reel it in, you will be able to feel the film coming back as it suddenly gets loose, keep reeling for 5 seconds just to be sure that the film is in the canister. Now with the winder on the top of the camera, pull it straight up. It may feel as if it were going to break or not do anything but keep pulling, it should come up relatively easy. One this happens the back should pop open and you can just tap the canister out. Store it in a cool dry place until its ready for developing. :-)
The F65 is a 35mm film camera.
The 28mm will have a wider view. So you can get more in the photo without taking a step back.
Yes, when using a 35mm format film, the 50mm prime lens is considered a "normal" or "natural view" lens. This does not hold true when using a Digital SLR camera (DSLR) becaus…e the sensor for most cameras is not 35mm size (36 by 24mm). Entry level and enthusiast level DSLRs often have sensors that are about half size (18 mm wide) and therefore the 50mm lens is equivalent to a slight zoom. A 35mm or 28mm prime lens is closer to that natural view. Some of the more expensive DSLR cameras have a full size sensor and thus have the same magnification and characteristics of the 35mm film camera.
Sigma builds lenses with mounts to fit Sigma and other cameras. I own two which are made to fit a Canon body. These would not work on a Sigma camera as they are, but I'm sure …the lenses are also available with a Sigma compatible mount. This involves the type of locking ring as well as the location and number of electrical contacts for the motor. So when buying a lens, make sure it has the mounting configuration for the camera you own. The specs should say "for Sigma" or "Sigma mount", etc. I have tele-converters made by both Canon and Sigma. The mounts look the same, but if I recall correctly I can't use my Sigma converters with certain Canon lenses. In some cases, the equipment may fit, but the combination is not guaranteed to auto-focus. Or the focal length of the lens plus converter may be mis-reported in the EXIF information. Check compatibility tables. Without a converter you shouldn't run into many problems. But before investing a lot of money, It helps to locate a shop that carries the lens in question and try it on your camera.
Yes, if your camera has the detachable lens option (lens' are able to be removed from the base of the camera). All brands that are the same as your camera will fit.
Hopefully never, but all good things must come to an end.
With a suitable adapter lense, you can use lenses from a size as small as 9mm, up to 18mm and 25mm, and at over 35mm you can find 50mm and 85mm lenses.
To purchase a 35 mm film camera, one could try their local camera shop. Big box stores and major retail chain pharmacies sell also disposable versions.
