    I received my 46mmx50ft HP5+ the other day.

    Very expensive strip of film but happy to have it. Now to load up some old 127 cameras.

    I did the math on that, it's only $5 per roll, so actually pretty cheap...

    Not cheap at all considering one must supply their own backing paper, spools and the time and labor to roll it up. Plus a light-tight wrapping.

    It is 3/4 the width of standard 120 roll film and just 1.3x that of 35mm.

    Ilford/Harman gets off without having to finish and package the film. Even 35mmx100ft bulk has to be perforated.

    I am glad to have it but it ain't cheap.

    I didn't consider all that, because I have a bunch of paper and rolls leftover that I've saved, I don't have very many maybe four or five that have good paper, the EFKE100, and also maybe another four or five of older stuff like Verichrome Pan that has crappy backing paper.

    Still as long as you have at least one piece of backing paper that's from an original 127 roll, you can always just cut out a 120 roll backing paper to match that. And since you can do that in the light, it's not such a big deal.

    Anyway any given day I can't see going through for whole rolls of 127 so I'm not too worried.

    Just got my 2 rolls of HP-5+ and a roll of 120 backing paper. Now I can put both my Ihagee Parvola and my Nagel Vollenda 127 folder to good use. Thnak you Simon Galley and the Harmon Board for doing this event on a consistent basis.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    It is appreciated, I will pass it on to the film finishing crew who make it.

    Hey guys! Just got my packages too!! 2 70mm double perf and 2 70mm Non-perf and one 46mm roll for my 127...

    However since the order my canard gear has changed and I'm wondering if anyone is interested in trading one if my 70mm non-perf for a 46mm roll they have? The 70mm non-perf is great for 116/616 cameras.

    I never got around to getting a 616/116 in working condition and the one I have has serious bellows issues...

    I'll throw in the 616 folder I have as part of the deal if that helps at all? Lol

    Either way I'm super excited!!! Can't wait to use this stuff! First camera is defiantly my 127 Yashica44LM

    Hey guys just a second note, the boxes that contain the role film, are the actual dark boxes, there are no metal cans contained within these boxes. I assume this is to keep costs down and because it's a special run you wouldn't make large cans for each individual size or anything so it makes sense that these are just in box form. There is of course the standard black plastic bag to keep the film safe from any kind of stray late, but I just wanted you guys to know not to open up the boxes in broad daylight, there's no warning on the outside of the box that let you know about this and so since I'm probably one of the first people to do it in daylight I wanted to warn everyone else. I suppose it was foolish of me but I was just really excited, I'm sure it's fine because like I said there's still another bag inside, but I just wanted everyone to know to be careful.

    And no it's not the 70 mm I was trying to trade, the box that I happened to open was of course the only roll of 46 mm... Well I'll probably shoot some over the weekend, so I'll let you guys know if anything got ruined but I'm sure it's fine.
