A few weeks ago I acquired a 1954 Kodak Brownie Bull’s-Eye camera from a local seller. It’s actually the second Bull’s-Eye camera that I own.

Shooting with Expired Polaroid Film

Tips on what to look for when purchasing expired Polaroid film. Please note that The Impossible Project is currently making NEW film for Polaroid cameras.

Sometimes, Failure can be Beautiful.

With the amount of expired Polaroid Film out there, follow Polaroid photographer Ellen Jo Roberts tipped me off to a group (started by daser) that unites users of expired film via a group on FLICKR called POLAROID FAIL! 

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Ansco B2 Speedex Junior

I purchased this beautiful vintage Ansco camera for $0.99us on e-bay. It’s fast becoming one of my favorite 120 cameras. Not a great deal of information on the web but I was able to find the following:

  • Made in (or around) 1945 in the US
  • Uses 120 film
  • 1/30th sec shutter
  • f-stops 11 through32
  • Has "time" mode for long exposures

Old Film Project on Flickr.com / Some favorites from 2009

When Flickr member Daniel Whitman found 400 rolls of dated black & white film he decided to start a community group called “Old Film Project” and give the film away!

Flickr members from around the world joined the group and received 8 rolls of the old film free of charge - under the condition that they will shoot the film as part of groups projects and themes.

NEW Old Film Project and other stuff

When Flickr member Daniel Whitman found 400 rolls of dated black & white film he decided to start a community group called Old Film Project and give the film away!

Flickr members from around the world joined the group and received 8 rolls of the old film free of charge—under the condition that they will shoot the film as part of groups projects and themes.

I joined in September 2009. I saw it as a unique and fun opportunity to create some great images (I hope) and interact with other photographers around the world.
