    haha! Lanline is hooked!

    I went back to film because d* wasn't good enough and now I'm going back to crappy Instamatics ! (and I never owned an Instamatic in my life before now)

    I wish we could get Kodachrome in 126 one last time. Sadly I'll never know that joy.

    From my trip to Las Vegas and the Instamatic 104 I only got one picture I liked. And it was a night shot. Fixed lens, fixed shutter speed but my scanner pulled one great picture off a nearly clear frame.

    Developed the film myself and I think my C-41 chems are about shot.

    Hi Bill,

    I'm looking for a new signature quote.
    This will be taken into consideration,
    unless you come up with something
    snappier, in the next few days.

    I got started with an Instamatic, and Magic Cubes !
    Every summer my Mom would buy a bunch of cartridges,
    and Magic Cubes. It's just making sense to me now,
    That She Was Trying To Keep Me Out Of Trouble ...
    Must have been the episode with the model rockets ?

    It sure would be great if Kodak had a 50th anniversary event. Offer new 126 film with prepaid mailers for $10.99. Or $14.99 for film, processing, prints and Kodak Photo CD.

    Maybe we can put a bug in their ears? It gives them 2 1/2 years to get ready.
    I note that 2012 is the 4oth anniversary of the 110 film, we could pester Kodak to start ramping up to the great 50th anniversary by marking the 40th anniversary first, to get them used to the idea.....

    That's funny. I like it.

    Maybe I'll use, "Must have been the episode with the model rockets ?"

    Dredging up old stuff here hoping to find something for my own Instamatic but I also have an Astrocam 110. I should check the plastic fins and camera body to see if they might launch in 2012 which would be fun...

    For the 126 it looks like it's color or bulk loading B&W... would be fun if Kodak did a commemorative run but I'm not holding my breath for it.

    My first camera was an Instamatic with color slide film. Got it for my birthday before a trip to Yosemite when I was 12. I was into model rockets but didn't have the camera version. I did launch my first 35mm camera on a tethered weather balloon though. Wish I could find those negs.

    Got my Solaris last week, finished a roll off yesterday and it is being processed at my local lab today. If they muff it I'll have to order some Tetanal powder or something for the next 3 rolls. On my next order I'm going to get some GE Flipflashes too for indoor use. Actually, perhaps I should do that now for fun if it can make shipment by the 25th as I always enjoyed 126 with flip flash around Christmas time as a kid and since this is all about nostalgia for me it sounds perfect.

    I did find some flash cubes for my Kodak 104. I think your Christmas flash idea is great. That huge bright spot in the center with the tremendous light falloff at the edges, classic Instamatic!
