    Recycle Those Film Cans...

    So cute!

    This one should give the Mods--official and self-designated--a few migraines:

    Oh! The insult to film canisters (and they call them 'cans'!). I may not sleep tonight with this going around in my head.

    well, yeah, sorta an abomination depending on how you look at it. But who doesn't need a flash drive? I saw this awhile ago and made one for myself using a canister from a roll of Tri-X (which I couldn't buy from them at the time). Now I'm making one from my last canister of HIE. At least I know I'll have the coolest flash drive in the room.

    Another example of great minds doing parallel thinking. That was my first thought since I have two HIE cans.

    As long as they are used film cannisters, I think these are great!

    If they weren't $20.00, I might order some as gifts for some of the digital shooters I know.

    Huh? $20 for a recycled film can? That's almost the price of a new roll of Velvia.
    Still, I've got it on my shopping list for Christmas.

    Great idea, I'll also see if I can make a few for myself...be nice to use the the empty canisters (got boxes of them!) and see and handle them when I'm using flash drives for work (nothing to do with photography....but I like the idea of accounts on Kodachrome, work correspondence on Agfacolor, address book on Orwochrome....).
