How many times has this happened to you?
You get a new camera you can’t WAIT to use, quickly run a roll of film through it and just as quickly get it developed. It’s now scanned on the computer and ready for editing and then
it’s sits there and waits
I recently found a monumentally cool roll of film whose fate was just that until the other day. This summer I got a well-loved Imperial Satellite II camera. It’s a 127 format camera similar in size and shape to the Brownie Bullet. The recently unearthed roll featured scenes from my favorite surfing beach this past summer. I am totally in LOVE with the results from this camera but they might be an acquired taste for some. I purposely didn’t clean the lens or insides of the camera so that I could keep that dirty retro-look. The film advance looked as though it may have slipped up with every other turn of the knob because there are a couple unintentional doubles on the roll that turned out really well. The overlapping lines and soft focus really makes me think of old movie stills. I love it and hope you do too.
