Roll 11 – Agfa ISO-RAPID I – TMax 400 – Art, Door, Music, and Wood

Roll 11 is TMax 400 film repooled into a Rapid format film canister and used in this Agfa ISO-RAPID I camera.  Rapid film canisters can easily be used with 35mm film and produce a square format negative, at least in the Rapid cameras I have.  I really love respooling film to use discontinued formats. I find it a very satisfying activity along with discovering cameras that produce images a certain way for certain subjects. I found that this camera, using 400 speed film, produces interesting indoor shots without a flash. Though the negative was thin of my friend’s painting studio, the harder-than-normal printed image was very pleasing to me with an almost dreamlike quality to it.  I’ll use this camera again under those circumstances and maybe try pushing the film just abit, but not too much.

This camera was in my pocket for a week and used whenever the moment grabbed me.

  1. Cool. I have an Isoflash Rapid-C, and I always wondered what kind of pics it would return. I never got around to respooling film into the Rapid cartridges. Looks like the lens is pretty capable, at least among consumer-level cameras.

    • The camera, in general, is a sheet metal piece of crap. The lens looks to be little more than a meniscus but under the right conditions, it certainly would have fit the bill for a cheap family point and shoot. The film format is really easy to use…it actually was a good idea at the time and easier to use than 35.

    • Thanks! I have other images of this door on Flickr taken with other cameras. I was there with 3 or 4 and snapped a few with each…a frustrating shoot because there were too many cameras which disrupts concentration so I couldn’t get in the zone.

    • There’s something about the square format that I’m especially fond of too. I didn’t know it was square until I processed the roll! I rotated the camera for what I thought was going to be vertical! The film just shoves into the canister…easy. It is better to have two canisters though not essential if unloading in the dark. Give yours a try…fun pocket camera…point and shoot.
