Not that they are made of gold or anything.. but it is a bit disappointing.


$ 5 and 1h 18 min to go ..... for the same model as mine (though not an original Zeiss lens) - you're right, it's not gold but ...

Make sure you can find someone to process it for you first, though.

Many rollfims, e.g. the Ilford XP2 Super, can be progressed in the C41 process like any other colour negativ film.

There aren't a lot of places left that process ANY type of film near me.

Most places now have gone to digital only on-site - and send disposables and other film out for processing (which always makes me nervous).

Great Cameras---love them.

I would love the Bantam - and the last one (I have one similar).

It is the worst to find film for these older cameras and even worse to find that you can't get it developed anywhere. Although it's not that hard to develop your own black & white with a closet and a kitchen sink (really!!). Just have to be able to read & follow directions. And you can still get reels and tanks for "home" developing pretty easily.

Let me see if I can find an easy one for you.

Here's pics and instructions in pretty easy to understand fashion:

Back in the heyday of film cameras you could rent a darkroom for an hour at our local camera shop. I don't suppose that is possible anymore.

our community college teaches photography , both full-time and evening courses .
camera clubs might be a way to gain access to a dark-room .

Cool cameras you've got there. if nothing else you should hang a shelf and display them. With a shot of your grandfather of course. Any photos of him with a camera?

Why not?
But not at your local drugstore. Better go professional.

Yep, the 620 is identical to the 120, just a different spool.

Developing costs about 3,00€ here ...
