One day in an effort to promote world peace through junk store cameras, to lighten my load and to possibly get a little run in, I took a short train ride from our Airbnb rental ( a converted garage) into Brighton, England. I ended up lessening my load by one camera, then adding three, then drinking beer instead of running. All in all, a good day! One of the trio I picked up that day was this Agilux Autoflash Super 44 – a big name for this little plastic camera. Made in England by Aeronautical and General Instruments Co. (AGI), its mid-century modern sidereal splendor attracted me with a cosmic pull I hadn’t felt in light years.
I’m finally abandoning my denial and admitting it: I have horrible technical problems with 127. Using film that’s expired 57 years ago doesn’t help, but I also think there’s something inherently wrong with 127 spools. They are simply light-leakers and that’s that.
