Konica Monochrome Disposable: Expiration 1999

One of my favorite things to do is experiment with old, expired film.  I ran across this disposable Konica camera on ebay for roughly 6 bucks with shipping so I thought I would give it a try.  A neat note about this camera and film is that even though black and white 35mm film is usually more expensive to process, this is monochrome film so I was able to have it processed with the standard C-41 process.  This camera expired in 1999 and considering the film is going on 20 years old, I was pleased with the results.  Enjoy.

One thing I will remember, this film requires a lot of light. The picture above was taken shortly after daybreak and the little flash just didnt provide enough boost to lighten the photo.

  1. Hi, i Just bought 50 of this for a project, i don’t understand the sentence : “monochrome film for color processing – be sure to request color processing” does it mean that i can’t use the standard black and white developing?.. thank you so much

    1. I’m pretty sure that’s what it means. I had a discussion with my lab and they recommended standard color processing. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!
