Welcome to The Moblog of Sir Findo Gask.
Unfortunately for you this is like a window in to my mind!

Do you think this will be any good for Mobloging?

Been tidying up at Granddads flat and this was in the bottom of the sideboard. I'll have to see if I can get some film for it and give it a go..

This answers a question about a camera that I came across more than twenty years ago at my aunt's house. I love a challenge so I did some searching for a116 film (the "a" stood for autographic because you were supposed to be able to write on the back). Unfortunately, this site suggests that it stopped being made in 1984. There may be old stock around, I suppose :)

Euporo, that also explains something for me. If you look at the very top shot you can see a vertical siver bar on the side of the bellows. This is the stylus used for writing on the back of the film. On the back of the camera there is a slot that opens which I now assume is to beable to access the back of the film with the stylus after you have taken the picture. Like an index I think..

I love MBUK!

We have several of these old beauties. (The Mister collects them.) He managed to get some film from one company in New York. I don't know if they still handle this kind of thing. I'll ask him. Lovely pics, btw. :)
