Good Old Kodachrome


* When I was a kid my very first camera was a Kodak Instamatic, a rather boxy chubby camera but incredibly easy to use. Even loading film was a no brainer, since it used ‘126 film’ which was a plug-and-play 35mm plastic cartridge. It supported this disposable flash called ‘Magicube’ – each side of the cube was a single bulb that would serve only for one shot, once a side was spent the cube will rotate for another flash until all four sides were done. The actual camera is no longer with me, but I still have some of the film negatives and prints….. not in a hard disk or flash card but in a cardboard box.
