Back in October 2017, as part of the 4th edition of my Cameras of the Dead series, I wrote a short review about a compact 127 roll film camera called the Ising Puck. The Puck was an interesting little camera made by a small German company called Ising, who at the time also produced a variety of photographic accessories.
My Puck was in poor shape, with peeling leather and an inoperable shutter. Although I wasn’t able to shoot it, I thought the camera was unique enough to write about so I put my thoughts down, sans sample images and posted it.
Recently, fellow collector and friend, Dan Arnold alerted me to a nice Ising Puck that he had recently acquired and that he had planned on shooting it. I asked to see the sample pics when he was done and he was kind enough to send me a couple shots from two different rolls of film. The black and white images are from an expired roll of Ekfe 127, and the color is from a 46mm bulk roll of FujiFilm Pro160S that he cut down and put onto a 127 spool.
I was really excited to see these images, but now that just means I am going to have to go spelunking into my basement and find whatever casket I have the Puck sitting in. If I am ever able to revive my own camera, I’ll be sure to update my review, but until then, here are some of Dan’s pics.
Impressive images, time to get your screwdrivers out, Mike.
