Kodak made a large number of 126 Instamatic cameras with varying levels of sophistication. This one boasts a clockwork motor-drive and Selenium cell driven automatic exposure. As 126 film is now defunct, I've loaded it with a very old 20 exposure cartridge of colour negative film. I don't expect particularly good results!

This model was sold under various names, it has a zoom lens and three aperture settings, the shutter speed is set at 1/125th or 1/250th depending on the film speed, set by a tag on the cassette.
I transferred the film from last week's Plane Cam after using 12 frames.
The film that came with the camera is at least 20 years old, and is unlikely to have been stored in a fridge or freezer. When I took it out of the developing tank, at first I thought it was blank, but when it dried out there were images on it, nevertheless, it needed a fair amount of post-processing to get even these rather poor results.

This is a novelty camera in the form of a British Airways plane. It takes 110 film and is a very basic model. The receipt in the box shows that it was purchased aboard flight BA224 to (or from) Gatwick, on 16/9/93. The price was £17:50. I've loaded it with the unbranded 110 cartridge that was also in the box and presumably dates from the same era.

It's been a while since I used a disc camera, and with the only film available being considerably expired, and therefore light-hungry, I thought this time of year would give it the best chance of success.
The Fuji film I've loaded it with is nearly a quarter of a century old, so the results may not be too good!
