My huband is the photographer and I got him a Chinon 35 mm for Christmas, so I can't ask him this question: can he use the Fuji 120 film i received in the mail in this camera? thanks.

120 film is for medium format cameras. Only 35mm will work in that camera.

Of course he can. It all depends on how good he is with a pair of scissors in the dark. Then again, there's always Origami. }:^)>

Splitting the film to create a strip 35mm wide is not impossible, but trying to create the sprocket holes would be a serious challenge.
