    Cameras & Boot Fairs / flea markets

    Found an old 620 exposed film in a Kodak Duaflex How Old i wonder also a half used Disc film in a camera and a 126 half used in a Kodak Instamatic as well an exposed 36 exp 35 mm in an olympus trip and another half used 35mm 24 exp in a Pentax Espio 140
    a half used 110 in another

    apart from the Duraflex i picked up these cameras from a Boot fair for 1 each and they all work batteries were flat i give the cameras to my sons to go out and play with when they go on school trips its cheaper than buying a disposable

    Why do so many people leave film in there cameras and just sell them at boot fairs

    I got the above lot all in 1 hour of looking and only got half way round as the wife was nagging lol

    its the wonder of whats on these films thats intriguing me am going to do a little collarge out of the results of all these old films

    what with the four old 35mm films i got and have come into possession of some others its a bit of fun for me and a mystery

    So the film can still be developed?
    Stuff like that would fascinate me.
    Flea markets used to be pretty big around here, usually at old drive-in theatres but seem to have gone downhill.

    Yes the films can be developed but if there is nothing on them to print then i will only get charged the process cost of the film prints are extra
