SHOOTING KODAK EKTACHROME IN THE 1960s KODAK FLASHMITE 20!
Top picture: My KodakFlashmite 20 camera has been in my family since it was purchased new in the early 1960s (it belongs to my Mother’s sister). It’s is fully operational
Camera was introduced by Kodak in April 1960 and discontinued in June 1965. It uses 620 film and AG-1 flash bulbs. Camera shutter is approx. 1/50th sec. and has three f-stop options (f16, f22, f32)
Also pictured: Jersey Boys The Smoove Sailors with special guest Henrique Couto kickin’ around this past July (playin’ music and eatin’ Jersey pizza at midnight!)

FPP Kodak Flashmite 20 video!
Can I shoot really old film?
Absolutely. General rule of thumb, Rate the iso lower (1 stop) for each decade of age.
So, the above image was shot on film that expired in 1960(!)
1960 recommended iso 100
5 decades - rate the film at iso 3 (Yikes! Most phone app light meters can be set to very low iso)

Kodachrome slide from Film Photography Podcast listener Robert Laubach. Bob says, “scanned from 120 Kodachrome circa mid 1960’s made with Ansco Speedex Special R (shot by my older brother Jim). I’m holding my first camera, a blue Kodak Starflash 20. They were made in black, white, red and blue.”
