    I suppose it's one of those good news, bad news things. You can often buy 127 film cameras cheaply because there's little film being made for them, but the film that they do make costs an arm and a leg.

    Those Yashica and Rollei 44 thing's look very sexy,for sure,I'll just keep using 6x6 when I get the "square urge".It is good to see 127 available for those that like it though.

    Alas, the Komaflex S....

    Mixed feelings here. I have a Komaflex S, to my knowledge one of the only, if not the only 127 SLR ever made. It has a decent 4 element f2.8 lens, auto film stop, but manual shutter cock, leaf shutter, all in a package the size of a Rollei or Yashica 127 machine. I bought mine new in about 1960 for, IIRC, $40. I still have the everready case and the instruction booklet. But....the autodiaphragm is sloooow...it won't stop down so all is overexposed. Repairs are very costly. So, it remains a shelf queen, much to my regret.

    I have a Revere Eye-Matic 127 Rangefinder. Now that's a weird camera. Enamel painted all metal with a winder lever like 35mm and auto stop advance. It has auto exposure but tops out at ASA100.

    I need to get it out and shoot more 127 !

    Freestyle has it here in the US too. I don't have any 127 cameras but I'm glad it's available for those who do, even if it is expensive.

    It definitely is not the only 127 SLR. The early Exaktas were 127.

    i'm glad. I have a Vollenda, from 1937 or thereabouts, schneider radionar lens, folds up neat, cutest thing you ever saw, gets 16 exposure on 127 and is really very sharp.

    I've been delaying using it to shoot my last three rolls of film because I hate not having film available, now I do.

    I've also been known to want to shoot a roll in the Brownie Starflex to show the grandkids how we did it back in the day.
