Re: weird size slides
Slides from the Rollie 4x4 were 4 cm by 4 cm which works out to a little
over 1.5 inches. Slides from film six 126 were just over an inch
square.--I'd guess Christina has 126--Instamatic--slides.

Definitely 127 size. The color slides were sometimes called
"superslides." They fit in an ordinary 35mm projector, but
the projected image was huge. I used to have a 4x4 Rolleiflex
which used this film, and which had superb optics. Unfortunately,
I can't say the same for the E4 (or E3) film I ran through it.
Beautiful at the time, but little left now.
I always thought this format was a great idea, but alas ...

Happy saturday! I have a whole weekend free to gum print!
Does anyone know anything about a Kodacolor slide film that was taken in
60's, is square format, measures about 1 1/16" x 1 1 16"? I've got a
of slides of that size and they are definitely NOT very resolved/resolute
compared with 35mm Kodachrome, Ectachrome, etc. but they have a certain
fuzzy charm. Unfortunately my CanoScan cuts off the top 1/16" inch when
