I had it 27 years but I found the owners. . .

The film that was inside the camera that you just bought holds images of days gone by.

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!

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.

Michael Carter offers some hope for me in this video. I will try it. . .

A more elegant solution. I couldn't remember if Patterson reels would open up that far.
