    I was just browsing the site for Film for Classics which is a company that sells the older film sizes. They list 127, 620 and others. I've never heard of the following sizes and would appreciate any information about any of them.
    They are: 828, 101,103,116,122,124,616.

    Brian, this should be right up your alley.<img src="/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif">

    I remember 828 when I was a very young lad. My dad had a Kodak camera which used it. I think it was a Coloursnap.

    Can't help you on this one Diane. If it aint Leitz it ain't worth thinking about.

    However did you know that a non 35mm Leitz camera exists? It was made in very small numbers for the American Counter Intelligenge Corp, {CIC} in a small factory located in Vienna in 1946. It was basically a copy of the Kodak X. It used 16mm unperforated film. The only known example is in a Military Museum in the U.S.of A. Further information can be found in an article in "Shutterbug" Nov 1989 Vol 19 issue no 230 page 172 for those interested.

    Brian, a mine of useless information.

    I know a bit about 828. It was a Kodak proprietry format (how unusual!) that was effectively a roll film version of 35mm. It had no perforations, and thus a slightly bigger image size than 35mm, in 8 exposure rolls (from memory).
    It was mostly used in the Colorsnap range - I have a couple in my box camera collection, including one with a built-in bulb flashgun. Film was still available in the 80's, but I haven't seen any for years.
    I think 116 and 616 were huge formats, with spool differences similar to 120/620 (another Kodak-only format).

    Oh. I came across a site called "Film for Classics" and this was one of the types listed. I have some old cameras that I have no clue what kind of film they would take -- old folding Kodaks. And of course, for those that work, I'd love to try them out. <img src="/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif">
