PENTI II HALF-FRAME CAMERA *RARE


PENTI HALF-FRAME
PRODUCT ID: SF.100818

OVERVIEW

With this camera you’ll always feel dressed up. It’s the perfect camera to bring to a party as an accessory to that little black dress. Comes in silver or gold-colored metal body and different colors of enamel frame.

Penti II uses the obsolete rapid cassettes but you can load 35mm film into those empty cassettes. The cassettes are only designed to hold 12 full frames (or 24 Penti shots), sometimes you can squeeze 24 into one – the older and more curvy the film is, the easier it goes, sometimes it’s a bit of a struggle. Loading the canister is simple, but a bit bothersome – just push as much film into it as possible. Don’t forget to cut off the lead and round the corners on both ends of the film to make it run smoothly. More information here.
