My father gave me 4-5 cameras earlier this summer, I didn't know he had them, I didn't even know he was interested in photography. He wasn't he had just collected 'em when he was young and thought the mechanics was interesting. - he didn't even know if they worked. One of the cameras was this box camera, a Kodak Brownie Six-20 Jr. I fell in love with it, it wasn't in its best condition, but the shutter seemed to work! I just had to try it out! The only problem was what film I was going to use. 620-doesn't exist any more, and sure, 120 is the same thing on a different spool, but I hadn't the opportunity to get any at that time. - So instead, I started thinking about how I could get 35mm film in the camera. After some violence, smashing and dashing the camera was loaded and ready to shoot! Exciting! When I was done, there was another problem. - I don't got a negative scanner, and my lab can't handle the long 35mm pictures that is the results when using 135-film in the camera (because its built for 620-/120-film). The solution was - ghetto scanning. At least for now, till I get a scanner. The pictures are blurry and soft focused, but I think there's some nice feeling to em. Enjoy. Btw! I just shot another roll with the camera, and this time I masked the back part for the size om ordinary 35mm pictures - hopefully my lab can handle 'em better now. We'll see! The sad thing is that I'll lose the sprockets. I'll have to get a film scanner!
