    Nikon made a 126 SLR? I know Ricoh did, and so did Zeiss Ikon and Rollei.

    126 had the same problem with film flatness as 110.

    But folks, it isn't the camera that makes good photographs!

    I have seen an absolutely fabulous poster sized (30" x 40"?) print from disk film and a basic Kodak disk camera.

    Of what? Grain and blur?

    Of someone who worked for Kodak Canada. It had been taken a couple of years previously when he was clowning around with some friends. It was presented to a crowd of several hundred at his surprise retirement party - after he had worked for almost 50 years for Kodak Canada.

    For many years early in his career, he was known as "Mr. Kodak" in Western Canada, because he was the only Kodak representative in the western half of our country.

    It was presented to the room by the president of the company, who did acknowledge that the print had required some fairly careful work at Eastman Kodak's labs in Rochester. The image information was there though in the negative and was retrievable with reasonably skilful and careful work.

    This was all before digital.

    By that, I meant that this was before there were digital techniques available to "enhance" the results - about 1984, I would guess.

    Still, you could probably duplicate it onto a larger piece of film and then print that image, giving you a finer grain look than the original image even if it didn't actually increase the quality at all, it would "appear" to be a finer grain than the reality of it all ... basically, old school extrapolation

    It would probably have to be done something like that. You would have to have an extremely contrasty negative to make a print that large directly enlarging from the original negative too.

    I was working photo retail when the disk camera came out and all the salesmen preordereda personal employee discount one: until we saw the real life photos and then we let other people buy the cameras. No problem with film flatness though. Crappy lenses and grainy film just like most Kodak consumer stuff.

    My bad, I was thinking of the Zeiss or Rollei.
