Ilford Envoy

Wondering how many of you will click on this knowing what I am talking about

shows your age!

Anyway today I was helping my mum clean out her late aunties house, and we came across a version 1 1953 Ilford envoy camera, its taken 4 pictures, and looks to be film in there still.

Unfortunately its carry case is very brittle but the camera itself in fantastic condition, bit of a talking point at least, wonder if I can shoot any weddings with it

Is it possible to develop the film?

Re: Ilford Envoy

the film will be pretty much no good now, is the envoy the black bakelite ones, run some film through it, although was it the 220 film it takes, may have trouble there????

Re: Ilford Envoy

I remember the name, but can't recall the detail of the camera.

The film could still be processed, but the results will depend on the storage conditions and the time. Even if the conditions were ideal, exposed film does deteriorate over a period and the exposed areas can migrate to adjacent areas. This will basically cause a softening of the image, but the extent cannot be predicted.

I'd give it a go - you have nothing to loose as even if it fails and you end up with no images, you are in this position now.

Re: Ilford Envoy

It takes 120 or 620 films.

I thought might as well give it a go, it was stored indoors but the house was always quite warm, heating always on full blast so not the best conditions.

Heres the fella

Re: Ilford Envoy

It's a lot younger than I am. Remember them but never used one. Have the film processed, there might be some images. Then run a film thro; have fun.
For processing and film you might have to do a "Google"...Kenny

Re: Ilford Envoy

They didn't do colour in those days.

That's why old fogeys like me have a different outlook on modern mono. We had no choice in our yoof, and when colour photography became accessible it was a whole bright new world - like going from b/w TV to colour.

That's not to say there's no place for mono in photography today, but I bet Ansel would use colour if he was still alive.
