Pascagoula Pawn & Gun

Jim’s Big Ego, Jim Infantino singing lead, with a
catchy little tune spotlighting a smoldering
hatred and an empty wallet!
They don’t gel, in this case at least.
He’s a talented artist that deserves the accolades…

    I’m glad you like it.

    Can I load 120mm film in light ? Im new to film photography and
    I have searched many sites and a lot of people say you can load film in subdued light like in a dim room or something but many other people say you cant.
    my professor even says you cant. So can someone please clarify this.
    It looks like it would be okay to load in dim light since…

    show more In the early days of photography a darkroom
    was needed when the camera was loaded or unloaded. This changed when Peter Houston, a photo
    hobbyist, invented roll film. He taped film onto an opaque backing paper and then rolled
    this sandwich up on a spool. The edges of the backing paper are not smooth,
    they as scraped ragged making a light-tight seal where the paper touches the flanges of the spool.
    His idea allowed loading and unloading the camera in subdued light.
    By subdued we mean indoors or even in the shadow of a tree or
    perhaps your own body. Huston’s roll film was so
    successful George Eastman, owner of Kodak Camera Company, licensed his idea.
    Over the years, Kodak made and sold many different camera models.
    The fist Kodak camera, introduced in 1888 was loaded with film at the
    factory and contained film that made 100 pictures. You sent the
    camera back to Kodak by mail for unlading and developing and printing.
    In 1889 Kodak made the No. 2 Kodak camera.
    It used a roll film similar to the 120 roll film you are
    using. Kodak labeled this film 101. Kodak film size 120 is
    2.4 inches wide and 32 inches long, made to fit a Brownie camera.

    The same film size was later wound on a skinner spool so that the Brownie camera could be made
    a little thinner. This film was labeled 620. Countless billions
    of rolls of film have been loaded and unloaded in subdued light.
    So successful is the roll film design, film unloaded and loaded in bright sunlight will likely be OK as well.
