    That's crazy. Seems like you could do it with something a little less fragile than an egg!

    I'm always putting the wrong film in cameras. I have a lot of cute little 127 cameras, and I'll often try 35mm film in them. (Or I did until I got my hands on some bulk rolls of 40mm film, which is the same size as 127.)

    But here's an example. The camera I used:

    Results:

    I think the light leaks are from me not taping up the frame number window well enough.

    I actually really like these results, I need to use this camera some more.

    When my Holga shutter died, I turned the camera into a pinhole. The pinhole is one that came with a Gakken plastic assemble-it-yourself camera that my brother sent me from Taiwan. The camera has trouble winding the film so I never use it.

    I first tested it out with 35mm film (faceless me):

    Then tried some 120. It has a really sharp vignette.

    On some rails (light leak along the top I later fixed):

    Haven't used it in awhile, I should do so.

    I liked the idea of the overlap and swap. I think that some really well thought out combos could really work well especially with the incorporation of different design choices. wish I had the time to do photography, but i barely have time for everything else

    I've recently started developing color film at home--and slide film too. It's really fun. I just want to shoot slide all the time now. I finally got to do something I've always wanted to but didn't want to shell out the dough for--I cross-processed C41 film in E6 chemicals. Some results:

    The film was Fuji NPC 160 shot in a Canon AE-1 Program. Chemicals were an Arista kit.

    i uploaded those with my phone and i hate typing on it!

    it took a while to figure out the shutter speed and also focusing was a little tricky.
    for the first one i just used some food colouring and water and took lots of photos and that was the best looking splash i thought.
    For the last one i was actually planning to roll the tangerine through water and capture that but it wasn't working out so i filled a metal tray with a little bit of water and just dropped it. i just find it fascinating to capture water in motion!
    I love this thread, some really interesting things, and sorry for the big pictures!

    Ilford Delta 100 developed in Caffenol. Took me three rolls to get it just right.
    I will have to say, it's pretty freaking cool!
