what's on the film?


I bought this instamatic at a jumble sale with used film still in the camera, there was one exposure left so yesterday I took a photo and wound on the film and this week I'm going to get the film developed.

Ofcourse I will forewarn the photo lab that whatever is on the film is not mine but lets hope the film is undamaged and we are likely to see a few kingswoods (circa 1970), perhaps some VW kombi vans with roof-racks full surf boards or perhaps some vintage holiday snaps from the Amalfi coast : )

Watch this space...

Is it 35 mm film? It might have a film cartridge setup. They might have to send it overseas to process it! (like they do with Super 8 film) What a journey those photos will have had if that is the case! Ooooo!

I just bought two little instamatics at a thrift store so I was excited to see your post today that you have one as well. Is it the 126 film? I love finding old rolls of film that once belonged to some one else and getting it developed. How exciting!

A fantastic find! I miss the anticipation of getting film developed. Can't wait to see what's on this one. You should hold a "what's on the film" comp.

You know... you are a delight, Ms White.

angela said...

It's very exciting!! Thank you for all your comments, I did try a photo developing place today who could only recommend another place in Carlton.

After a little bit of online research I've found out that it needs a special kind of film (type 126) and it's 35mm film, but are in square format.

I'm back looking for photo labs tomorrow!

Haha, can't wait to see what's going to be posted sometime soon! How fun & great find! :)

myf said...

i used to have this same camera- it didn't wind the film on properly so all the images overlapped in a totally random way.

i love that you were compelled to develop the mystery film

btw, i'm off to japan in march courtesy of amazingly discounted tickets. yay!
