These 36-exposure film rolls hold 1000 photos

Back in the days when we were shooting actual film (it seems so long ago) a roll of 35mm film held a maximum of 36 photos. Well, not anymore. These can hold up to 1000.


The USB film roll from Photojojo is an interesting juxtaposition of old and new technology. Made from recycled 35mm film canisters, these 4GB drives can help you remember your photographic roots while appreciating the convenience of the present and future. Since actual film canisters from photo labs are used to make these, you should expect the Forrest Gump "box of chocolates" selection method (you never know what you're gonna get). Maybe some Kodak T-Max, Fujichrome Provia or one of the last exposed rolls of Kodachrome? For me, as long as I don't get one of the plain, bulk-load canisters I'll be happy. Those dang things always leaked.
