My Camera is Sick

Sometimes it doesn't advance the film. I don't know why and I can't tell when it's happening. It's one of the things the camera folk worked on when I first retrieved it from mom's house but if it didn't fix the first time I wonder what the odds are of it being permanently fixed. It doesn't happen all the time, either. Maybe once or twice per roll.

There are many factors in favor of my getting a new fancy camera this year, in the next 3 or 4 months, even. This is another one. I don't ever want to let this camera go, though.


  1. I can see where its not advancing the film could be a real drawback, especially if you're looking to get a REALLY GOOD SHOT of something in particular, but honestly, I think this double-exposed piece is FASCINATING, and it would serve as a reason to KEEP the camera....

  2. What is this "film" to which you refer?

  3. I'll never actually get rid of the camera I'm sure but it may not be practical to use all the time. OK, it's already not practical what with the film and developing and all.

    Rich, it's stuff from the olden days, you may not remember it. :)
