After 1/26 and 1/27 comes 1/28, with which has no obvious association with an obsolete film format, and so is just another Friday… While shooting some for 126 Day and 127 Day, I also happened to be testing an LC-A that I had taped closed and written ‘Stuck Shutter’ on some months or years ago, …
The only bad thing about 127 Day is that it follows immediately after 126 day for 2 of the 3 times it rolls around every year (1/27 follows 1/26, June 12 is a month before July 12, 12/7 is a day after 12/6). Shooting a whole pack or roll of film in one day is …
126 Day is a day to celebrate 126 format film and cameras that happens 3 times per year: January 26 (1/26), June 12 (12/6), and December 6 (12/6). I missed 12/6/2021 (and 12 June, 2021, and many prior), and when I remembered, I quickly loaded some Foma 200 into an old Kodacolor II cassette to …

Given the issues I had with the Fakmatic (light leaks, inability to track progress, requirement to wind multiple times), I decided to try my luck with some 126 cartridges and ordered up a few expired rolls. A roll of 1975 expired Kodachrome X was first to arrive. I reclaimed the film, wound it onto a …
I don’t quite remember what exactly got into me. Something about wanting some square sprocket images or something, if I recall. Or maybe I got tempted by one of the 1-2-6 days (December 6, January 26, 12 June) somehow. Who knows. But there I was, one day in October, watching some of the FPP videos …
