If someone wants them for this conversion or a conversation piece...fine. However, Even under ideal storage conditions, those film packs are long dead for their original purpose. They will not produce an image.
I just listed 19 packs of film on ebay if anyone is interested.http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/162194810017?

Ahhh, the old Pleaser! Probably has not pleased anyone in quite a while! I don't think that you could really convert a Pleaser to pack film. It was an integral type instant camera, not a peel apart instant camera. I've converted a Kodak instant camera to a cut film camera, but the results were not that great and was not worth the effort. Better to have it as a decorative object or doorstop 8-)
Hi thanks so much for this! Has anyone tried doing this with a Kodak camera? I have an old pleaser instant camera by kodak that I really want to try this with.

I'm got $92 an hour working from home. I See when my neighbor told me she was averaging $120 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. Check It out what I do....................... REVIEW80.COM
Do you still have extra cartridges? Also would it be possible to do something similar with 35mm film?
HELP! I just found my Izone camera, does anyone know where I can find unused cartridges for this fun little camera this many years later? If so please contact me on facebook.
I know this is an old post, but what is the ideal thickness of the poster board? I'm actually going to cad this up and cut it out of abs plastic to make sure I have the best possible setup. My wife has a bunch of 110 film she wants to scan, now that nobody else in town does 110.

I think the reversal process requires a positive black and white developer ideally. A hypo agent like Sodium Thiosulphate (1 teaspoon for < ISO 100, 2 teaspoon > ISO 100) can be added to the first developer to temper the film development. You'll also need a second development stage after the fogging (reversal) to properly prepare the film for the colour development stage. 1st developer 1:5 concentration ( 12 mins < ISO 100), 2nd Developer 1:9 concentration ( 4 mins < ISO 100, 6 mins ISO 200, 8 mins ISO400).
Hi! Does anyone have an extra used cartidge? thanks
I don't have the original mask.Could someone scan there one in so I can make a copy?
Sorry, I wasn't clear - it won't even fire. I've tested the same flash unit on other cameras and it seems to work. Thanks for the suggestions - will give it a go!
my n8000 won't sync with the supplied flash unit - have you got any idea how to troubleshoot and fix this issue? great article btw, very comprehensive :)
I made it not rechargable but reuseable, 2cr5 batteries are getting pricy best price I found was 18 euro each or 3 for 36 euro. Ouch. What I did find was 2x cr2 cells for 3.75 euro cheaper than ebay :)I used some compressy foam used as packaging for a computer monitor or PC. Its quite springy and very easy to cut and shape with a knife. Very easy just used a couple of drops of super glue using a cotton bud with an end sliced off to apply the glue. an old plastic bag was used to catch any excess glue. I didn't even stick my fingers together this time :)
thanks for the reply! the camera is a pentax auto 110 that my boyfriend's dad gave me. he kind of treated it like a useless relic of the 80s and i was like NO IT IS PERFECT.The cartridge I took apart was expired lomography 200 color. The backing paper is fine, I'm just lazy. I see what you are saying: I'd have to keep track of the exposures if I didn't reload with paper (not ideal for a lazy person such as myself). I want to reload with b/w film i can develop at home--usually I use Ilford HP5+ 400 in caffenol c. I'm pretty comfortable slitting it down in the dark. But I really like the idea of using microfilm that's already 16mm wide. I love contrast, but I'm worried about the low ISO because the shutter speed on the pentax is automatic.
i keep losing the pentax lens cap tho it's so tiny
Thanks for the great tutorial! so far i've got to emptying the cartridge and cutting the cartridge apart. Could I reload it without the backing paper if I put a strip of black vinyl tape over the window that the numbers show through? (does the film advance fine without the paper?)
Thanks for the instructable!I tried the same, using ilford pq-universal as first developer. Also got magenta-purple color cast - strong one. It is correctable in scanning, but I eventually gave it up, waiting to get some proper e6 chemistry. If someone has tips on how to reduce the color cast, it would be nice.
It is also possible to use flash/studio flash for fogging (3-4 times on each side should be enough). Dont know if it helps on the color cast, though.
Interesting comment! I have cyan-grey highlight problem on regular c41, using professional chemistry in small tanks.... It might be related to the problem you describe.I presume "stop-clear" - stop mixed with aspoon of sulfite - would be the best way to stop and rinse away the developer.
Hey, I'm the guy who originally posted this process on Flickr. Nice to see someone else giving this a shot, looks like you're getting some decent results. I've found I get less of a blue cast if I re-expose with a full spectrum bulb instead of a Tungsten one.
