Modified "disposable" camera

I like to play around with disposible cameras. I reload them after use. I also modify panoramic models to take full frame pictures. (Normally, panoramics only expose a 12 mm high strip down the middle of the frame, instead of the full 24 mm height of a standard 35 mm frame. This seems like a silly waste of film to me. In addition, I adapt them to take 24 exposure rolls, rather than the usual 12.

Unfortunately, newer models have non-standard film drive mechanisms, but older ones can be used with standard 35 mm cartridges.
