Another usb key casing, this time for the analog photographers

Picture of Another usb key casing, this time for the analog photographers
I had a usb key lying on my desk for while, the casing had cracked and opened and I kept it until i found the proper replacement casing.
I hope the analog feel of it will please the film photographers on instructables :)

Step 1: The film cartidge

I used a reusable film cartridge i had with my bulk film loader.
I actually like the plastic film cartidge better, they are more reliable and close firmly.
As I had no use of this metal cartridge, i found it perfect for that little project.
You could of course use a standard film cartridge! Use a cheap roll if you discard the film or a roll you reuse after you developed it's film on your own ;).
I advise you open your cartridge it with a bottle opener, it's the safest way.

Step 3:

Plug the film cartridge to your computer and voila!
You can store various files on the usb key memory, but i bet that image files will best fit ;).

I put a sticker on the cartridge and gave it as a birthday present to a photographer friend who loved it at first sight !
