Adaptador Camerhack Fakmatic para 126 cámaras de película
¡Estos maravillosos adaptadores le permiten usar film de 35 mm en su cámara 126! Bienvenido de nuevo al mundo, 126 - te extrañamos: -)
Creado por el legendario Camerhack, con este dispositivo podrás disparar a cualquiera de losPelículas de 35 mm disponibles en nuestra tienda con un mínimo de bricolaje requerido.
Un par de consejos adicionales:
- Use una film de 24 exposiciones o reduzca un rollo de 36 exposiciones en un tercio, vea el video a continuación, ya que es poco probable que obtenga más de 16-20 cuadros debido al tamaño diminuto de la cámaraze
- La mayoría de las 126 cámaras tienen una velocidad de obturación rápida fija y una apertura media, por lo que ISO 100 o 200 es probablemente su mejor opción para obtener buenos resultados en un día soleado.ay
- No todas las 126 cámaras funcionarán bien con el adaptador: el FPP ha producido un video increíble que hemos incorporado a continuación para que pueda verificar si es probable que su cámara sea un éxito
- Las perforaciones en 126 son ligeramente diferentes a las de 35 mm, por lo que la mayoría de las cámaras intentarán detener el avance demasiado pronto. Asegúrese de tomar una o dos fotos 'negras' cubriendo el lente con la mano o similar entre marcos reales para evitar superposiciones ... ¡a menos que eso sea lo que está buscando!r!

This adapter thingy is very easy to use. A great alternative to reusing old cartridges!
I like a 126 camera. They're cheap and usually pretty nasty. It's a fun way to photograph.
The problem being of course that you can't get film anymore. The Fakmatic solves this by letting you load any ordinary 35mm film into your camera.
It's pretty good. You'll need a dark bag to load it. It does help to have used one before, as it is a bit tricky sometimes. It comes in two parts, so keep this in mind wgen loading your camera. The first one I used was a Kodak Instamatic 500, which is actually a pretty decent and solid camera, so it isn't too leaky; I'd suggest extra sealing precautions though.
You will also need to remember to fire 2/3 "blank shots" as a normal 35mm film has more holes than a 126.
If you have a 126 you want to dust off though, get on it.
Some sample shots. Nothing earth shattering, but gives an idea.
Extremely simple to use, but requires a bit of practise.
The first thing to note is which way the yellow wind-on spindle goes in. Get it upside down and you'll be upset..
The second thing is that there is no mechanism for knowing your film is finished, so I taped a match to the end of the film strip so that it met resistance at the end and I knew when I'd finished. If you go the old fashioned "count in your head" method, you'll get about 18 exposures from a 24 exposure roll of 35mm (assuming a double wind on between shots)
Well worth a go, and not every Instamatic is a plastic "fantastic". The 500 is fully manual!
I brought this to shoot 35mm in a Kodak Instamatic233, as always with AW it arrived on time and in perfect condition etc...
It's a very simple little gadget, 3 pieces plus a little shim if it doesn't fit snugly in your camera, however mine fit perfectly and just needed a little extra push to get the back closed over it, nothing excessive.
The instructions that came with it weren't in the clearest English but there are plenty of helpful videos online covering the subject (including the ones helpfully linked to the product page above) that very clearly explain how to use this and a couple of pitfalls to watch out for; mainly remember to effectively cover up the little viewing slot on the back of the camera if it has one and to shoot at least one blank frame between each frame to compensate for the differential in film size.
A few mention problems with winding on and the sprockets on the film mismatching a little lever in the camera however my camera has this lever and still wound on perfectly every time.
I shot one blank between each frame but haven't got the photos developed yet so can't comment as to whether more would have been better.
It's best to avoid 36 exposure rolls for this as it can only fit 24 and its a shame to waste the film.
Loading it was very simple with the use of a light bag.
Out of the bag I taped the end of a 35mm roll to the green spool then put it in the bag with scissors, the fakmatic cartridge and the camera. I wound out the film onto the spool, cut it with approx. an inch left on the original case and then unwound the film in a tight roll and slotted it into the fakmatic cartridge.
This was a tiny bit fiddly as the film needs to slide into the cartridge neatly with both the green spool on one side and the wound film into the opposite cylinder and the length between slotting into the slit it will pass through when shooting, but I managed it on my first attempt with a little bit of feeling around.
Then you put the top on the cartridge, load it in the camera (important to do this in the bag as it isn't light tight in the fakmatic alone) and it was ready to go.
Once the roll was done, which you can easily feel, I put the camera and the original film case back in the light bag. Unloaded the camera and cartridge, reattached the film on the spool to the tail end of the roll in the original case using the tape that had held it to the spool and then wound it back in, making it easy to send for development.
Overall, very pleased, a simple and effective little product that now lives in my 126 camera and should last as long as it does at least.
Having watched the how to video several times I managed to get the film loaded, which wasn't too difficult but you do need to pay attention.
Will have to wait and see how the photos turn out before I can comment on how successful it all was. Part2
