Slide into the Past:
Discovering the Unique World of Vintage Slide Formats
Enter the realm of visual nostalgia with the ubiquitous 35mm Slide, a hallmark of the late ’70s’ photographic landscape. Revered as the most prevalent slide format, this icon symbolises an era steeped in visual storytelling.
Crafted as a set of positive images extracted from your film negatives, these slides find their sanctuary within a plastic or cardboard framework. Each slide carefully ensconced, adorned with precise cutouts or guides, ready to be seamlessly positioned and directed upon a projector.
The 35mm Slide, a cherished relic of yesteryears, stands testament to an age where every framed image ignited a visual tale, transporting audiences through a montage of captured moments.
Step into the world of the 126 Slide, a cousin akin to the 35mm slide, yet with its own unique allure. Sharing the embrace of a sleeve, these slides unveil a distinctive charm—a square film cutout measuring 28mm x 28mm, deviating from its intended 26mm heritage.
In a twist of dimensions, this slide’s film window extends to a square frame, offering a slightly larger canvas than its intended namesake. Kodak, in its innovation, ushered in the era of the 126 slide with plastic sleeves, later transitioning to the frugality of cardboard frames akin to the 35mm slides.
