    Hi, would just like to know where did you develop your film, does any photo store work fine? (unfortunately, yes, I have the typo disposable camera too, and I hope my pictures will be decent..)

    Hi! I developed it at Camera House on Elizabeth St, because in my experience it’s the cheapest place in the city – and the only place in Melb CBD that does same-day processing (everywhere else sends the film off-site).

    I’m sure that any film processing place will be fine. I hope your photos turn out a bit better than mine did!

    Thanks for sharing these now we know where abouts in the frame the border will be!
    About exposure I use a black bag/photographic changing bag to get the film out of the camera before exposure, then Still in the bag I wind it into its cassete (make sure to keep 4cm of leader out of casette (for loading).), take it out of the bag, all before exposure and the I put it in another camera! and then you could calculate your own exposure or use a automatic camera.
    P.s.
    The film is 400 iso

    Thanks for the tip, Rhys. I’m not the most confident photographer, however, so I’m not sure if I’m quite competent to remove the film pre-exposure. Just a question, though – would that affect how the borders are lined up? For example, if I didn’t wind it on in the right spot, would I end up with exposures that don’t quite line up with the borders?

    Hi britt,
    I will get back to you on that one, but I am sure that if you use an automatic camera that has an electric winding system it should be fine I will try it and get back to you and prehaps even send you photographs!
    🙂

    That’d be great. I’ve still got a couple of these cameras sitting around at home [because they were so damn cheap], so I’d be very interested to see how your photos turn out.

    Hi Britt,
    I tried to use the film in another camera and 4 came out well and properly framed yet the rest did not ,
    what I suggest you do is make sure that it is all well composed, and always stand at least 3 feet away from the subject ,also I recommend that you have the film cross processed as traditional black and white because the colour quality with these cameras suck! Unfortunately I could not post the images here as
    the computer will not allow me to! If you give me an email address I could send them to you!? 🙂
    Yours Sincerely,
    Rhys M. Becks
