Our Gang – Not quite as old as the camera

I had a fun time with the gang last night, photographing them on a 1920’s Kodak Pocket No. 1A which I bought at an antique shop on Whidbey Island for $20. It is is great condition and had one tiny pinhole light leak in the bellows which I repaired with a dab of liquid electrical tape.

I’m not sure I’ll use this camera much, but I can’t image a digital camera still working in at the turn of the next century. Another thing to consider – 8 shots to a roll, 8 shots published. Not sure I can say that about digital either.

    I assumed you used one of the recipes for using 120 film in it rather than having found a supply of 116 film newer than the 1940s?

      Ha! It is a 120 camera. It was manufacture BEFORE they came out with 620 or other such nonsense. One of the reasons I bought it.

    These are amazing! I think you should carry this camera around for fun 🙂

      He, he. Actually, I might get a Hola for a 120 carry around fun.
