    Hi all,

    This is a bit cheeky of me to come on here and start poaching visitors but...

    127 is an awesome film format that we're in danger of loosing. It offers a negative which is almost medium format in a package that is compact enough to tote around like a 35mm.

    As a 127 fan (who has collected a few too many cameras), I've found an almost total lack of 127 specific information on the web - it often falls between the cracks (as here - there is a 35mm (minature) group, and a medium format group - wither "small" format!).

    I've therefore collected together all of the information I've found on 127, and set up a website dedicated to the format - the aim being to provide a focus for 127 users, and spread the word that these camera's are still viable.

    www.onetwoseven.org.uk

    I've posted a few galleries, and set up a simple forum, but for this to work I need support from the community - 127 users need to stick together, so if you're working with the format, please check over there and post a message (or email me some stuff for a gallery).

    Thanks

    Ian

    (with appologies for the intrusion - I'm not trying to steal users from the board, but 127 needs a place of its own).

    I'm glad you posted. I have too many 127 cameras, too. I'll put a link on my site.

    As if anyone needed an excuse to buy more cameras...

    To plug the site further, I just uploaded a MUST HAVE/unique item... The Rollei 44 manual in PDF format! It's 77Meg (huge) so don't try and grab it by modem, but I scanned it specially for the site, and wanted to make sure the quality was A1.
