    ...and one more taken before taking the roll in. Surprised that I actually got anything out of it!

    Great work Q97. Love the colours you got from the old film. Gee, using film takes me back. One thing I learned was - make sure your photo is going to be a keeper 'cause it's going to cost you for developing. Nice job.

    Yeah, I am surprised that I got anything at all... especially given the humidity we get here. Makes me want to buy an old SLR...

    But there is something idly satisfy getting images out of this 50 or 60 year old Russian box of metal.

    Re: Developed 6 year old roll...

    6 years, is that all??

    I was presented with a roll of 127 roll film from my mother in law about 7 years ago.
    It was still in the baby brownie, with 2/3rds of the photos taken.
    So after a few questions I learned that it belonged to her father, and had been found out the back in a corner of the garage when they cleaned it out.
    Estimate it to be about 50 years old.

    So I got together with a fellow film buff in his dark room, and after some research, decided that D76 neat, and about 11 minutes, should do the trick.

    We got some images, not the greatest, but enough to show 2 little girls (my mother in law, and her cousin) in several images, and a her mother getting lunch out of the back of the family car.
    We were all amazed that any image could and would last 50 years in a garage in Melbourne.

    Continuing on from the using of old cameras.
    I just picked up an Agfa Billy 6.3
    Made in either 1950 or 51.
    It's in awesome condition for it's age, and all I have done is paint the inside corners of the bellows with some black fabric paint to make it light tight.
    Just finished the first roll today, and need to process it to see if my handy work has been enough.

    Don't hold back, go and put some more film through your old cameras, it's fun.

    Yes I've done similar stuff myself, and I've still got some un exposed film, which must be 10 years old by now?

    Was just thinking of throwing it into the bin only last week.
