    WTB: 127 film.

    Hello, If anybody has any 127 film to spare, I'd be interested in buying. I just acquired a Yashica 44 and my 5 rolls of 127 Efke Pl 100 aren't going to last very long.

    Shipping would be to Montreal, Qc, Canada, H4A 2R2.

    Thanks!

    Hi bkarasek, save paper backing & spools from existing films. Buy 70mm film on Ebay, as well as slitter 70mm-127 and make your own rolls. All you need is little bit of dark space and roll of masking tape. Let me know if you need links for the sellers. It worked for me. Way less expensive than $11 per roll of 127 Efke

    Here's a quote from AG's web site in the UK.
    "Made by Agfa Gevaert in Belgium, Rollei Colour reversal films CR200 and Crossbird are classic colour reversal (slide / transparency) films at a very competitive price. Coated onto a clear polyester base, films should be handled carefully and in subdued light when being loaded. Supplied in a handy plastic container - keep films in this container before use and before processing. Crossbird is aimied at photographers who want to cross-process in C41 colour negative process. The only 127 film available in colour."

    Alas, I only shoot B+W; but thanks for the heads up anyway.

    Blue Moon Camera lists three 127 films including an infrared emulsion. It's not cheap, though.

    I picked up a 127/16mm splitter and roll my own 127. I also save my 120 paper to use when my 127 paper wears out. not much to cutting 120 to 127 dimensions.

    If I may ask, where did you get your 120/127 slitter?

    In case anyone else is looking, I picked mine up on Fleabay a few years ago.

    The item title is "Al Spoil film slitter -- cut any film down to any size".

    I checked to see if there were any being auctioned but no luck.

    You could try contacting him with his eBay user ID xkaes.

    Here's an idea for a cheap splitter.

    Do your cameras auto-wind, or how to do you know when to stop winding? Is there some method of making the framing numbers on 120 backing line up with 127 windows?
