126 film cassette
In 1963, Kodak introduced 126 film onto the market for its Instamatic cameras. 35mm film is inserted in one side of the cassette, and then wound a bit further along using a spool on the other side of the cassette after each photo is taken.
Did you know …
… unlike the 135 film roll, which can only be used once, you could keep reloading new film into the 126 film cassette after each use?
Minox film cassette
The Minox camera and accompanying film cassette is even smaller, which is why it was called a spy camera. Who knows what content could be on this narrow film, just 8 mm wide…?
Used or not?
If you have a 110, 126 or Minox film cassette and are unsure whether the film has been used, take it to a photo lab where they’ll be able to tell you, and develop it for you if it has! Don’t try to open the cassette yourself – exposing the film to light would destroy any images.
