And why is that? Because those cams from the 90s and early 00s were made in America, not China.

I still have some around as well. The trigger unit itself never went bad, but the winder gears in the film cameras all broke over time.

Noteworthy, the trigger speeds of those Non-Typical 35mm film cams was quicker than most cams being sold today, the images better, particularly on moving animals. Rarely was anything running by during the night blurry (like we see on our latest cams).

But now, hard to imagine being limited to only 24 to 36 pics on a trail cam you planned to not check for a week or two or longer. Then there was the trip to develop the film. Was much more costly then on a per pic basis.

Nothing worse than getting the pictures developed only to find out all 36 pictures were of a family of coons the first night the camera was out.

Ah, remember those days!
Actually, having coon pics dominate my film footage was ONE of the reasons I totally stopped using corn to attract deer in front of trail cams. Even before realizing the other drawbacks & dangers of using corn, it was causing me to miss a lot of deer pics because the coons would use up my film.

There was also lots of "learning curve" days, such as putting the cam on a small tree that would sway a bit in the wind. A windy afternoon could shoot up all your film in a couple hours, providing pics with no animals. Ditto for having some blowing around in front of the cam.

I would hate to actually know how much film and developing cost I wasted on wind--from swaying trees to falling leaves to tall grass moving in front of the camera.
