    Excellent condition.
    Lens extends and shutter fires perfectly.
    Looks and works beautifully, although I've not tested it with 828 film.
    The empty 828 film spool is included.

    $15 + $7.50 shipping

    Doesn't anybody still shoot 828?

    I did, several years ago, with a Bantam Special. 828 looks like 35mm without the sprocket holes. For those interested in using 828, you can buy a slitter that cuts down 120 film and backing paper to 828 size. Sorry, I don't recall the source right now. Good luck!

    There was an online discussion about how to shoot 35mm in an 828 camera.
    Can anyone shed some light on this ?

    Yes. It is very simple but time consuming. Make a paper backing that will accomodate 15 frames - mark the frame numbers obviously. You will need a roll of actual 828 film as a template. You need two spools of course. In the dark, cut 35mm to size leaving unneeded film in cannister. Tape film to correct starting point on backing paper (mark with a small peice of tape so you can feel where it is). Wind up film and backing paper together on to the one 828 spool. It will be backward now so wind it again to the other spool. Keep everything tight and you should be good to go. Takes about 15 minutes to do all this.

    B&H photo sells re-rolled kodak film in 828 fresh, it's expensive but no need to roll your own...

    The camera you displayed is a Pony 828, not a Bantam??

    Thanks for the correction...yes, it's a Pony 828, not a Bantam.
    Sometimes, the name Bantam is used as a catch-all name for all 828 cameras, because the film was referred to as Bantam by Kodak.
    But you are correct...it's a Pony 828.
