vintage camera

vintage camera

look what i found!


my mother's old old camera: the kodak instamtic camera 76x (this particular model were produced around 1977) gawd this camera is older than me!
i can still remeber her buying flash cubes for this, so that even with artificial light the pictures will still turn ok. and i just learned now that this camera doesnt even need batteries... cool!


i even found that there is film inside, kodacolor Gold 200 film - 12 exp.

wonder if i can still have the film develop at a processing center, if they can still recover whatever picture was captured in it. wouldnt it be good if i find a store still selling this type of camera film? guess i have to go to hildago to check.... im so excited!

This was a brilliant camera. I think I bought mine around 1966 which was when they first came. It was a camera you could load easily without having to fiddle around in the dark. I only used black and white film in it for the first five years or so. I must have used it for around twenty years before finally abandoning it. It wasn't until digital cameras came along and became reasonable quality for their price that I started becoming interested in photography again.
