old talk[edit]

Agfa also ceased production in 1999, so any Agfa cartridges for sale must be old stock.

The Instamatic page says that 50 million cameras were made, and the 126 film page says 10 million. (Perhaps the Instamatic page is referring to both 126 and 110 cameras? I always presumed that 126 was more popular than 110, but maybe I'm wrong...) Themeparkphoto 06:19, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

processing[edit]

One part of the page says it's rare to process 126. Another part says it's widely common. Make up (y)our minds. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.144.237.40 (talk) 06:33, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

High end 126 cameras[edit]

Kodak made at least one model of SLR 126 camera, which was compatible with their high end Retina Reflex SLR lenses, though some of the Retina lens features didn't work with the 126 SLR. The 126 SLR's lenses also fit the Retina Reflex SLR. I saw one of the 126 SLR cameras at a thrift store, went home to search the web to see if the lens would fit my Retina but the camera was gone when I went back to the store. :( Contaflex and Rollei also made 126 SLR cameras. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bizzybody (talkcontribs) 07:38, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Scanners[edit]

I am changing the text for scanners because it points to a source for a single scanner. That scanner is currently the most popular scanner on Amazon, but the statements don't hold true for the second most popular scanner on Amazon as of today. Unless there's evidence that many scanners can deal easily with 126, the text should not make that claim. For slides, any scanner that holds a 35mm slide will hold a 126 slide. But top scanners such as the Epson V600 try to locate a rectangle in the location of each slide, and fail with 126 slides. Although the areas can be selected manually one at a time, "all that is needed" is not necessarily a piece of black paper for many top scanners. It should be doable with any scanner that can deal with 120 film and allows cropping, but it won't necessarily be easy. Hagrinas (talk) 00:12, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
