A Blog About Film Photography and Film Cameras: Traditional, Experimental, and Alternative Processes.
Bantam has a big problem: the film. Very special.
So Bantam film is nolonger available? Just like my father's poor polaroid!I guess one can just put it on a shelf to look at. But what's the fun in that?
The film is very rare, very old. And not yet tested in my flickr erwinruys fotostream "120 film in..." so you have to wait. Polaroid is still available, there are groups of Polaroid-users (like the Lomo-fans).
Ah, but my father's polaroid uses roll film, which I was told is no longer available. Do you know otherwise?
Roll film - that was the last polaroid invention, dia, with a developing machine! Killed, of course, by the digital revolution, shortly afterwards. The normal Polaroids are always film-packs. (In many sizes - I still have a "thing" for my Technika)
I had one a long time ago. I used to love collecting and selling old cameras. I still have a small collection of my favorite ones.
I turned around one day and realized that I was a collector by default. I love the old cameras because they are so reliable.
