A festive treat: a 35mm single-use camera pre-loaded with a mystery film...
We have worked with one of our suppliers to remove all identifying markers from a film and load it into these beautiful 'Batman' cameras!
What To Do - Win Film!
Shoot it over the Christmas period, develop it, review your photos and submit your guess of film on social media along with the hashtag #mysterycamera. We will randomly pick a correct answer on the 20th Jan and the winner will get a lovely prize of films :-)
You can develop at home or send it to your normal lab. Just tell them to "develop it as if it was HP5" - but I'm not guaranteeing that'll necessarily deliver exposure-perfect results ;-)
The camera itself was great! I reloaded it a couple of times already and I use it for all kinds of events where you just want a small pocketable camera.
However, the "mystery" film inside is one of the most horrible films I have ever had a chance to handle, and I have hand developed hundreds of rolls. The emulsion is alright, but the film base is so flimsy and thin that I spend a f*cking hour trying to spool it up on a plastic reel without any luck. What usually takes me 2 minutes, now took me an hour and only because I just gave up, scrunched the film into the Paterson tank and went commando with it.
I would seriously pay a hundred bucks just to know what film this is so I NEVER have to touch the damn thing again. I'm fairly sure it is an Ilford stock from context, but I never had any problems with Ilford films like I did with this one.
