Banana Camera Film

Banana Camera Film[1], also called DK Film[2] or Film Rolls[3], are yellow, collectible film rolls with the DK emblem, used for the Banana Fairy's Camera in Donkey Kong 64. Banana Camera Films are uncommon items only found in certain areas of a level, but they only become usable once the five Kongs have the Banana Fairy's Camera. A Banana Camera Film is used each time a photograph is taken using the Banana Fairy's Camera.

By default, the Kongs can only carry up to 10 Banana Camera Films, but like Crystal Coconuts, each time a Kong successfully photographs a Banana Fairy, the maximum capacity of Banana Camera Films is increased by one. After capturing all twenty Banana Fairies, the Kongs can carry up to 30 Banana Camera Films, despite them not having any other essential purpose.
