I keep sheepishly waking up after important film-use and alt-film days (most recently Argust 18th but including 110 days and so on) and realising I forgot. Again.
In three days time, 28 August, it will be World 828 Day. I have taken down my Kodak Flash Bantam 828, a marvel of solid, simple technologgy, and have determined to be ready on Tuesday to take pictures with it.
My technique with the Bantam is to respool regular 35mm film on the 828's right-hand spool (I luckily do have two), and -- with the red window on the back carefully light-sealed with tin-foil and sticky-tape -- to tape the end of the film to the (left-hand) take-up spool. All this in the dark, of course.
And then, having already figured out that three half-turns of the take-up spool will go from one frame to another, I'll take pictures.
. . . If I don't forget again!
I recommend it to anyone else with an 828 camera. 35mm is the same width as 828, but your images will spill over into the sprocket area. Here are two pictures I took using my Bantam 828 in 2010:http://www.flickr.com/photos/flipflik/4937925441http://www.flickr.com/photos/flipflik/4936013877
