Probably easier to convert the camera to 120 via some spool adapters, and film channel masks. That's what I'm going to do with my Ansco Buster Brown. You can always find old Kodak developing tanks, but I've never seen the spools for them. I'd think they were made of wood, and thus have disintegrated over the years.

I knew as soon as I wrote that I'd probably be wrong.

By the way, in the fifteen years since I last developed any 122 film, has there been any improvement in the technology? I mean, the only way I was ever able to do it, the four or five times I did, was by long, arm-tiring, dip&dunk. It would be a huge improvement in my technique if there was a developing-spool system that would take 122 film!

Larry, I was just talking to my wife about that -- giving the camera back. I think there may be one person in that family who has a big interest in photography, and especially in her father's stuff. So if she wants it, she'll get . . . after I shoot the rest of Erie's film.

There's something to be said for social media, and that is it's a good tool for connecting people from the past to the present. Good work there, Philip.

Why yes I have a Yashica ez521 sitting right here. I have had it for many years now. It is an odd bugger. It has no shutter and exposure works by the sensor being off or on. so if you move the camera you can get weird effects.

In 1991, I bought a Kodak Autographic 3A Special. That's the model of 122-film folding camera with the coupled rangefinder, and -- being 122 -- gigantic negatives, about 5 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. There was a roll, partly exposed, in the camera when I bought it, so I developed it. That wasn't easy -- the old dip-and-dunk method -- but it worked. There were three images, all of them good, and one especially lovely. They showed a family apparently on holiday. I couldn't tell where they were but it seemed pretty clearly somewhere in Newfoundland.

Lately I've been scanning all my old negatives, more or less in sequence, and yesterday I was doing 1991. When I scanned the three 122 images I thought to put them on Facebook. Maybe I'd find out who the people were.

Overnight, 385 people "shared" my posting and by mid-morning this morning I knew who the family were. They were not tourists, but a local family. (The 3A camera had been stolen from their weekend home forty years ago.) I have broached the idea of doing a reenactment of one picture later this fall. That should be interesting -- not least the developing (which I do not relish).

If I do the reenactment, it will be with one of the three rolls of 122 film that Erie Patsellis (one of our colleagues here at Photography Today) sent me six years ago.

I think this Facebook link will work even for those without Facebook accounts but, if it does not, I will try to post the pictures here.

Just to close the story, I discovered a co-worker had an uncle who collected movie cameras and he wanted the film. I was glad to pass them along.

That is a striking moon photo-- both the moon and the setting come through well. Congratulations!

I've yet to fully capture a colored moon successfully. Had one once that was quite red shining through the mist of some clouds, and when I took the photo, all I got was a blank white disk.

I like the combination of lighting here, James.
