my two new cameras. a brownie bull's-eye and a kodak duaflex III. my parents had emailed me last week saying they had sent some mysterious package my way, but not telling me what it was. when it arrived i was overjoyed to find these two cameras in the package. they both use 620 film. a film kodak apparently developed so that people would be forced to buy film from them instead of the 120 format that was widely available. today, 620 isn't readily available but some 620 cameras can take 120 spools. these cameras really can't, but since both cameras contain a 620 spool i can just respool 120 film onto a 620 reel and shoot it that way. i've shot a test roll with the duaflex(i really love the feel of this camera), and i've just started to test the bull's eye camera.
