This photo was taken with a Kombi Camera from 1892. Seriously, 1892. Isn't that nuts!? My Uncle Bill gave me the camera. :)
This is the Kombi. It is actually one of the first roll film cameras. More on it here.
So there isn't really any usable film around from 1892 I used some 120 film that my professor gave me and cut it up to fit in the Kombi.
Template for the film. I had to cut the film totally blind in COMPLETE darkness and then slide the film in the camera. It was difficult, but doable. I love camera hacks!
The different parts of the Kombi.
I put tape over the lens before I took a photo because I didn't want any light to leak in when the shutter is being cocked.
And the result! I am in a photography class this semester so I was able to use the dark room to develop my pictures. I recommend taking film photography. The dark room is great. :)
On another camera note-- today was parent's day at my school and we went to a little town called Rockville.
We went to this antique store and my dad bought me THIS CAMERA!!
It made my day. My dad usually disapproves of my collections but I guess he thinks this hobby is OK. Thanks for the camera, Dad. You're the best. :)
Janet, my dinosaur, loves the Brownie. She's got good taste.
Great day. :) Can't wait to work with the Kombi more.
