Irony alert! 35mm film may be all but obsolete, but Etsy user newfocus has found a modern purpose for the old film canisters: Storing digital matter. The film canisters have been repurposed as shells that house flash drives for easy transfer of digital files. Just like the 35mm film stored photographic negatives in its previous life, the canisters now provde storage capacity for digital images and photographs. Think of it as analog storage for digital data.
