    Hi,

    I made 1€ bid and won on some old expired films:

    120 format:
    Ektacolor Pro Gold 1000
    Fujichrome 100
    Kodak EPT 1600

    MACO Strichfilm 6,5 x 9 (100 Blatt)

    Not sure what is this MACO? For some old cameras? can I use this in Diana toy camera or rolleiflex with changing bag (I have only those 2 medium format cameras)? If not, then probably pinhole. 120 films are around 15 years old, I guess overexposing 2-3 stops is a good start?

    thanks,

    Kodak od 1000 ISO ti je vjerojatno voda - prebrz a prestar, ali tko zna... "Strichfilm" je litografski film, moraš smućkati ekstremno mekani razvijač i fotkati motive bez puno plave i zelene. Kazete za taj format se lako nađu u Njemačkoj.

    (Translation of the above to English):

    Kodak 1000 ISO film is probably shot - too fast and too old, but who knows... "Strichfilm" is a lith-film, you need to mix a very soft-working developer and pick motives without too much blue and green. 6,5 x 9 cm film holders are easily found in Germany.

    You just bought a whole weekend or two of fun film experimentation.
