I recently purchased a roll of Verichrome Pan that expired in 1961. I used it in my 1957 Nomad 127. Very excited with the results.

Taken with the Ansco Readyflash
February 2014

I received this Kodak Jr. a gift. I used 120 film on a 620 spool.

The Ansco Readyflash is a simple viewfinder-type camera with a fixed focus lens, fixed aperture and single-speed shutter. Made in 1953, it took 620 film, giving 8 2¼” x 3¼” exposures on a roll. The body is a basic sheet-metal box, with removable lid, and plastic fittings carrying the lens, shutter and viewfinder.


I recently bought a Brownie Imperial 620 with an exposed roll of Kodak Verichrome Pan 620 inside. Film was processed and I’ve started printing the images I found. I’ll be looking inside every old camera I see from now on!
