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.

  1. 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?

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