Salvaged Disposable Camera Film – 800 Redscaled

Film: EasyClix 800 pulled from disposable camera
Expired: 2014
Camera: 1953 620 Kodak Brownie Model D

I really should limit my poking around on Ebay. In my quest for cheap old film I came across a set of expired disposable cameras for cheaper than the film would cost. I figured it was possible to re-roll whatever was in there so I bought them. Once delivered and I cracked one open, I was happy to see it was just a normal 35mm canister in there, already ready for the reusing in one of my cameras. The speed was high enough at 800 so I figured it’d be a good candidate for flipping for redscale. Let’s see how the roll turned out.

Pretty dramatic so far

Some end-of-roll light leak lent some great coloring to this scene.

I love how forgiving redscale can be while shooting directly at the sun.

I enjoyed how this experiment turned out. Maybe I should look for more ebay disposable camera lots.
