I was psyched to pick up a bakelite body 1949 Kodak Pony 828 for $ .69 at a thrift store yesterday - It's not valuable or anything, but I'm going to clean it up tomorrow and then mod some 120 film to fit it. Look for results in a month or so.

No joke, that camera was mine that I tried to sell at a yard sale (for $.50) on the 9th and it didn't sell! It was then taken with the rest of the unsold stuff to the thrift store! I have no idea if it works so I will be really curious to see your photo results!

No givebacks! Seriously though, I'll post them once I get them developed! I'm using expired film so expecting some crazy Holga-like photo love. That bakelite was never the best choice for preventing light leaks.
