I bought a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, and the one I picked had a roll of film in it. Kodak Verichrome Pan. Unfortunately about 2/3 of the roll was ruined because someone had open the camera one or more times over the years, but the ones that weren't ruined were pretty clean:

I purchased 3 rolls of Kodacolor II 127 rolls for the backing paper and spools. One had been exposed. This is the clearest image, cross-processed as black and white in D76. The float represents Citizens Against Barriers, an early disability rights group. Probably early-mid 1970s.

I occasionally develop films for a collector friend (like I'm not a collector...) - in fact I think there's one in the fridge as I speak. Many of his cameras have come from French car boot sales, here's a few from him:

...and some magnificent from a VP Twin (Verichrome Pan, this time), from someone whose photography skills were really pushing the envelope. Downhill, into the mud.

Its from an unknown camera, but I bought some old Verichrome Pan in 127 format recently from Ebay. Developed it this morning in Rodinal, standard processing.

I just bought a Canon Powershot G11 at the thrift store for $13CDN. It came with a battery and 4GB card. Only three images visible on the SD card but I’ll give this a try!

I've had this happen twice. The second time was some family's camping trip. It was the seventies and Kodak color negative film. I tossed it in some old Diafine to see what was what.

The first time was from an auction site and I was buying some Kodak metal film canisters, 35mm and inside of one of the cans was a developed roll of B&W film. Apparently, it was a test roll someone shot in 1954. Oddly enough I now live in NC and bought the canisters from Oregon. The photos were from Millbrae California...where I worked in 1977-78.

The memory card had two visible images of a grandmother’s Christmas dinner at home.

I couldn’t find a free image file recovery app for OSX (did not look hard though).
The free preview apps showed hundreds of recoverable (latent?) files. However I just was not curious enough to justify going any further to discover grandma’s pictures of her grandkids and flower garden.

This week I bought two old rolls of Kodacolor-X in 127 format. I processed them in Rodinal (an hour stand at 1:100) and found two dozen pics from some family's vacation in Oregon, probably 1970-72 or so.

That second to last image is a shot of the Venus de Milo, where she stands today in the Louvre. Cool stuff. I've processed a few rolls of old found film but it's always been just random snaps, never anyone or anything specific I could recognize.

Very cool. My own wedding (UK) and honeymoon (Portugal) shots might still be sitting in some Portuguese thrift store inside the generic 35mm panorama camera that baggage handlers lifted from my checked luggage in the 1980s. I blew a whole roll of film on those two as well!

Found this film couple of weeks back, very cool to see camera-related stuff on them! Seems to be from the Swedish city Örebro.

Those pictures are amazing. Not only rescued from the past but also showing this incredibly giant TLR

The last one shows a bersagliere (Italian light infantry) with parade uniform in the famous stairs of Piazza Spagna, Rome.

This thread has brought back uncomfortable memories for me. Some years ago I picked up a used camera at a camera fair, and on getting home found that there was a part used film in the camera. At the time, it was easier to get the film developed at a local supermarket than clear my darkroom for action. Once I'd handed the film in for processing I got home and the TV was running a piece on child pornography, and how tough the laws were.



Help!

Could I have incriminated myself by handing in someone else's film? I sweated for 2 days, but fortunately, all the film contained were shots of holiday resorts in Normandy!

I love this thread; it inspires me to look more closely at ALL cameras I see for sale to look for film. A few years ago I bought a Yashica TLR and these images were on the film it contained.

I bought a loose roll of 127 Verichrome Pan (no idea what kind of camera) and developed it yesterday. One shot (just one!) looks fantastic...



But the rest of the roll was muddy, blurry, grainy etc. Hard to believe it was the same roll! Maybe the rest were taken in heavy shade... And/or someone handed the camera to one of the kids who had terrible hand shake. The only one I scanned was this one, because it had some old vehicles in it:

Some of these unknown photographers' work here qualifies as fine art.

How many more undiscovered Vivan Mayers are out there, lost forever?

I bought from the US a c.1903 Rochester Premo B 4x5 camera, with two plate holders and one film pack adapter with film inside. Ten sheets were exposed. I exposed the two remaining (wich turned nothing) and developed all. Although heavily fogged by a century left in the camera... most of them showed something. Mostly what it looks like a weekend trip to the forest, and the backyard of the owner. As it was a Kodak Film-Pack (introduced with this name in 1922) and the camera by that year was 20 years old, I asume the pictures were taken in the mid 20's, probably in what looks like north-eastern USA, or the Pacific coast. I bought it from someone in Michigan but that could mean nothing by now.

Had never seen a Sigma camera, so bought an SA-9 from Goodwill in Racine, Wisconsin. It had a roll of Fujicolor Super HQ 200, which I cross-processed in HC-110. Scenes appear to be south-eastern US.

Interesting pictures indeed! the last image was taken on the big stairs at Trinitŕ dei Monti in Rome and it shows a Corporal of a Bersaglieri Regiment (by the way I served as a young officer for this Corp of the Italian Army)

Who knows what unexpected amateur granny porn you may have discovered on that card.

From Ebay, I bought an exposed roll of 127 Verichrome Pan. Still in its box (expired in 1962). I developed it last night in Rodinal, standard processing:



I seem to have a knack for finding old films with airplanes!

I loved Verichrome Pan. Look at all the tones that even this poorly cared for negative has. Too bad we don't have a two layered film today that even if wasn't the sharpest at least everything tone wise was there. No matter what exposure you gave.

Nice. Looking at that, I can only wonder about the stories those people have and stories about their plane.

I tried looking up the tail number on that Bonanza at the FAA web site, but came up blank. I also looked up variations on that number, assuming we're missing the final letter, but came up blank there too. Too bad, because fork-tailed Bonanzas are a personal favorite airplane for me.

The V-tail Bonanza is a favorite of mine as well. Sadly, all we know about this one is that it belonged to "Ray" and he's on some dirt airstrip.

There's probably a V-tail Bonanza forum that might like that photo and may be able to provide info. There's beechtalk.com, which requires registration.
