    130 format film?

    I just discovered that my family has the original camera my great grandfather bought brand new in the 1910-1920's it's a No.2-C Autographic Jr.

    It takes A-130 film, obviously the Autographic film isn't around, but might anyone have a spare roll or two lying around? I'm going to visit my great uncle who has the camera and it would be really great to re-roll some 70mm film into it and shoot it, I know that's not quite the size, but it's the closest thing I have.

    I don't know if the camera has a take up spool, it's been sitting on a shelf for years and any film would have been thrown out most likely. So I would like to snag two spools if possible... Anyone?

    you can use 120 film and make the spools fit with the help of spare 120 spools. look at this http://photo.net/classic-cameras-forum/006HzU

    Thanks, yea I know about just using quarters or something, but it's a lot less flimsy if you have actual spools for the right size.

    Will 116 rolls fit? They are 70 mm as well, I believe.

    No, 130 is actually bigger than 70mm, I was just saying that that was the biggest film I had on hand that would fit the spools themselves, but the schools are wider, I was just going to use the backing paper as the spacer.

    What I really do is use 120 on one side but use my 130 for take up.

    Thanks, that's an idea I suppose, but then removing the film from the camera would take a darkroom/bag.

    And, I don't know WHEN I would have the chance to use it... Family are nervous about letting it get damaged, so it would be something I would rather have on hand, but a very kind gesture.

    Bid on two on eBay with paper backing, hoping no one outbids me and that will solve the problem, I only want 2-3 rolls.

    Don't go sniping my auction now please...
