Loading The Film
I loaded some Kodak Portra 160VC into my Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera because I plan on taking it out this weekend and shoot with it. It normally takes 620 film, but a spool of 120 fits in it. As long as I use a regular 620 takeup spool winds better than a 120 spool, so this combination seems to work well in one of these cameras.

I got one of those Brownie Cameras from a flea market a little bit over a year ago for $4, I believe it is the same one that you are loading film into in this image. It came with some Kodacolor X film in the back of it. I guess it would pointless in trying to get it processed since they no longer do the C-22 Process and considering how long the film was inside the camera, it is probably no good now.

Hey, I found an old camera at the downtown antique store and it had some exposed film inside it. I had it developed and it turned out pretty good considering it had been taken right at 50 years ago! It's a place in Canada that develops old films like this that other places can't develop. I'm pretty sure they're called Film Rescue International. It's amazing what they can do with old film like what you're describing.
