    126 film

    Is anyone aware of anybody that sells reloaded 126 cartridges? I know you can DIY but I don't have a dark room and would rather just buy it.

    No you can only do it yourself, search on here for that question you'll find a few threads about it.

    Here is a thread of interest:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/1...35mm-film.html

    You can get a large changing bag, but if your camera requires the indexing hole (or you are unwilling to cut the indexing pin), then making some sort of jig or device to help "perf" the film will really help in the changing bag.

    Unfortunately, finding an old cartridge can be expensive.

    Thanks. I ordered 3 rolls to try out. With shipping it works out to about .73 per frame before having it developed. Yikes!

    Hi, Jeff;

    Let's do something to help put that $0.73 per frame on your 126 film cartridge into perspective.

    (1.) You do not have any, but Blue Moon does, and you also know that they have not made 126 film in quantity for over 25 years now.

    (2.) You will be able to get your camera back into operation. And, you can reload those three 126 cartridges, and keep your camera in operation.

    (3.) About four years ago, Dennis Purdy had his 12 by 20 inches (NOT Centimeters!!) Large Format landscape camera out at Newport, Oregon. We calculated that it was costing him, at that time, about $25.00 just to load one of his film holders with a piece of film.

    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Yeah don't take that film to just anyone to develop. They will break open the shell and throw away all the rare bits.

    Read up on how to crack and cut open the shell and even if you dont want to process it yourself, you can roll the film into a 35mm canister for send out. It is better than trusting ham-handed dullards with your Instamatic carts.

    You will need a changing bag or perfectly dark room to do it though.

    Properly separated, they can then be reloaded with all sorts of films for reuse.

    And, if you can't find any labs in the Memphis area that will use care in opening the cartridges,
    and return the '126 cartridges' and the 'backing paper' to you...Blue Moon will.
    Just ask or tell them to do so.

    Blue Moon is very accommodating to folks shooting odd formats...ie;
    Mini 16, Minox, 110 & 126 cartridge, 620, 127, etc...
