Ilford 127 Film - bulk rolls

Wow!

This past week I was enlightened that Ilford 127 film in 50' rolls can be ordered!!!

Yes! For the last few years, Ilford 127 film (Delta 100, FP4 and HP5+) has been made available by special order each Spring. It is based on worldwide demand and a minimum order. Details here from last year:

https://www.ilfordphoto.com/ulf-2017/

We ALL need to put this on a watch and not let the 2018 deadline slip past us!

It gives me enough time to start a "slush fund"/piggy bank just for ordering several rolls. If I can do it, anyone can!

So, here we go! The 127 film train is due in the station in a few months.
How about you guys?

Got a 127 film camera? Time to get moving and shooting with Spring straight ahead!

Dave,

I think PhotoWarehouse maintains some stock of these once a year special order films. Some are still leftover stock. Check their website.

For me it is 70mm double perf for loading Linhof CINE's. Also sheet film sizes.

Good luck.

I intend to order a few 50' rolls of 70mm type II perfed HP5+. It works up to about the same price as 120 prepackaged HP5+ film. The advantage is photo firepower (15 ft roll in Hasselblad).

Remember though you won't receive the film until Fall 2018 time frame.

Other than this my freezer is fully loaded.

You know, I have a little time now and then and I tried to read through the 70mm thread over the weekend, but didn't finish. It has me thinking about a lot of things for the Hassy!

Thanks for the opportunity to dream again!

Dave,

70mm backs for a Blad are priced around $50.00. Firepower means not loosing shots to cronic reloading.

Also Rollie 400S is available for no money from MacoDirect in Germany.

Dave,

Be patient. Mucho info on Dan's 70mm thread. Also have seen Blad 70mm backs for as cheap as $40.00.

If you bulk up on Rollie 400S I figure the cost per 120 equiv is about $3.00 a roll. This makes film pricing like about 5 years ago: the good old days.

So, I assume the Ilford 50' rolls come without backing paper, right? What's the workaround for that?

At Photowarehouse they sell the backing paper seperately.

Here is the 2017 announcement last year from Photo Warehouse:

http://www.ultrafineonline.com/il20ullafouf.html

There are quite a few others from which you may choose to order from...

The only film available in 46mm (127) format is HP5+ unfortunately.

That's a pity as the shutter speeds available on my elderly cameras means the slower the better...

I agree completely. The 4x4 TLR cameras and the Komaflex SLR are the exceptions, but weren't the vast majority of 127 cameras simple rotary shutters with slow shutter speeds like 1/15th or 1/30th? My Vest Pocket Kodak or my Imperial Satellite would need heavy overcast weather to shoot with ASA 400 film.

How about some Delta 100 please?

Consider an ND8 filter.

If not in the proper Bay mount, then perhaps a Series mount.

I'm not sure what the bayonet size is of the baby rollei. I've seen Bay 1 adapters to accept standard threaded filters.

This one:

The Rolleiflex 4x4 takes Bay-1 filters, right?

I have Rollei Bay-1 filters in ND2 and ND4. I don't know if they made an ND8.

PS. B&W Super Slides are an intriguing possibility here, and I imagine they would be as well suited to scanning as they are to projection.

Yes, standard Bay 1 AKA Bay 30 (in Yashica/Minolta speak) fit the gray Baby.

The standard hood is orientated in a different way, though.

Thanks!!! That will be a great thing if I can find one! I do not really quite understand the terms Bay 1/2/3, etc. but B&H lists a Heliopan 2 stop ND filter for special order.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...1_Neutral.html

Is there more than one Bay 1? Does Bay 1 mean it is the correct size filter to fit the Baby Rolleiflex?

I'm in. Last year I placed an order for 2 rolls of HP5 in 46mm (the only 'flavor" offered in this format) with freestyle photo but the money was refunded and no rolls were sold due to lack of sufficient orders. 2 years ago I did manage to snatch one. It really isn't difficult to "roll your own" using old rolls and backing paper, but I strongly recommend the old time all-metal rolls, since some of the plastic edged ones that the ReraPan folks use (from Efke rolls I believe) have broken on me in the process.

Sounds like it is time to get the word out!!!

Is there more than one Bay 1? Does Bay 1 mean it is the correct size filter to fit the Baby Rolleiflex?

Bay 1 = all Japanese TLRs that take Bayonet style filters, at least every one I have come across and all Rolleiflex 75mm f/3.5 Xenar/Tessar models

Bay 2 = Planar/Xenotar 75mm 3.5 Rolleiflex models, and the uncommon "2.8A" 80mm Tessar model which has a unique Bay 2 arrangement.

Bay 3 = Planar/Xenotar 80mm f/2.8 Rolleiflex models

Bay 4 = Rolleiwide / Tele Rollei

Anything bigger/higher is for the SL66 type SLR lenses.

You can also look for filters on Filterfind.net. Haven't used them but they seem to have a good selection most of the time. Also could look at a Series 5/V adapter, I have used those in the past before I happened upon some cheap Rollei filters that do what I need now.
