Neat!

http://www.obsoletemedia.org/110-film/
110 slide film was available from Kodak until 1982, and Kodak stopped making 110 cameras in 1994, although 110 film is still available today for specialist use.

Really? I had one of those cameras when I was a kid, and I know I had bought kodak film for it, and I wasn't even alive in 1982! (maybe it existed longer in Canada?)


I really like the Aperture cards for some reason... http://www.obsoletemedia.org/aperture-card/

Pretty sure it means you were unlikely to buy slide film for it... I've never seen that slide format.
Then you could get one of these to view them! http://www.pradoseum.eu/englisch-versio ... 10-en.html

Aah, I missed that word.

I also had a Polaroid camera, the pictures came out around 2.5"x4", similar to fujifilm instax but much older, it had a pull-cord to pull out the exposed film instead of a motor. The film came out the side instead of the front, and it was loaded in from the bottom. I don't think it was the i-Zone, because those are a lot smaller and mine didn't have the tabs. http://www.obsoletemedia.org/polaroid-i-zone/

Anybody else remember this camera? Would have been from the late 90s.

Sounds like a packfilm camera. Polaroid made many types of cameras and films: http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Polaroid
