Loading Disderi Robot Camera

17 Nov

“You can’t beat that people. You just can’t.” Damn right you are! Many a times, the best things do come in the smallest of packages..;)

I bought the exact adorable Disderi camera in pink(Barbie complex) a year ago but lo and behold…*Shame on me* I have yet to figure out how to load the 35mm film into it..I tried and ruined 6 rolls of films last year and I just gave up, chucked it into the deep recesses of my drawer…

But as fate decreed…I picked it up as I was packing my stuff and I’m all determined to have some fun with this little cutie.. Thus the late night desperate googling “loading film into disderi camera” Which brought me to your pics(which are mighty lovely btw, and a huge source of inspiration)…

If I might impose on you, may I trouble you to perhaps, take pity on this absolute stranger and camera-idiot like myself and help me out right here with a step-by-step how-to… your help will be much much appreciated!

This was a comment that I received the other day and wanted to address it. I feel your pain. I used to have this problem simply loading a regular 35mm SLR and would never wind the film far enough, go through an entire day of shooting, only to have taken a total of zero photos. Those days sucked. Thankfully, the Disderi is super simple to load. Just follow these steps and you will be on your way to taking fun pictures whenever and wherever (as long as there is bright light) that you want!
