127 Film Day - July 12th - POST YOUR IMAGES!

Either a reminder or a bit of news to some of us....

There are three days each year, worldwide, designated as 127 Film Day. The first was January 27...

The second one is upcoming on July 12th.

In recognition of the first observation of such a day for me, I will be posting 127 images on this thread specifically for 12/7 (12 July). I have a few to share if I can figure out a way to actually post a decent image (grrrr...).

POST YOURS! We all would like to see how others are shooting their 127 film cameras.

PS: This was my last developed roll of 127, from a post on another site:

That's a nice shot David.

Just noticed, the Rera-Pan 100 in 127 size seems to be completely sold out everywhere. So now the options are to cut down 120 film or do that bulk Ilford order. Have you talked to Freestyle lately, do they have enough orders for the bulk rolls to make 23?

Best,
-Tim

No, actually I thought about it this morning and been running errands. Who did you talk to before?

Hint: if you rush you can order a few rolls at Blue Moon... i ordered 2 at a premium 12.99/ea. but don't wait long!

Tim,

Just called Freestyle and they had no idea or not releasing the number of orders yet. It will be a few weeks after May 26th. Not sure how that works but I was told that they only had to cancel twice in 13 years.

Just a wait and see situation.

Thanks for the info on Blue Moon. They've got 20 rolls left, then it's all gone. You need to call them directly if you want to order more than three rolls, because their web site ordering restricts the order to three rolls or less.

Best,
-Tim

Hi,

Much as I like playing with the Purma Special I don't think I'll bother using it. It's a bit too noisy for my liking.

Regards, David

This image was not taken recently. But I did take it using 127 film in my Brownie Holiday camera, the very first camera that I owned. The film used was Verichrome Pan. The image was taken in the early 60's at the summer camp I attended.

Hi,

Yes, it's great fun to play with and thanks for the link. Not one I've seen before; I bought the camera becuse of all the adverts and a review in the 1930's magazines.

What's impressive about it comes in the Focal Guide to it which has a lot of good to excellent sample photo's and - amazingly - one of them is marked as an official Royal Navy photo and taken during the Normandy landing.

BTW, 127 film here is about twice the price of it in your part of the world.

Regards, David

Did you talk with them on the phone, or are you just going by what you can order online?

Because when I talked with them on the phone this morning, they still had 20 rolls left.

Best,
