    You can still get colour negative film in 127 size from the Frugal Photographer in the US. It isn't cheap but they are not affected by the Efke close-down as they seem to have a different supplier for spools and backing paper.

    Be aware that Rollei Nightbird is a redscale-spooled (iow. twisted) film.

    I was sorely tempted by a Yashica 44LM in good user condition, but after researching the film situation decided against it. I should perhaps get my Komaflex S up and running, but I'd face the same film problem. The 'flex is a 127 leaf shutter SLR made by Kowa, I think, in the late 50's. Fun camera, but the auto diaphragm on mine doesn't want to stop down. Alas....

    The original Exakta takes 127, too - I'd cut down 120 film if I had one!

    Blue Moon Camera, in Portland, OR/USA still lists some 127 available, too.

    One thing that has always concerned me about 'The Frugal Photographer' site
    is their high US, per-order, shipping charge of $12-$20USD. They're located in, and ship from, Nampa, ID/USA
    http://www.frugalphotographer.com/

    I guess ordering larger quantities of photo stock, per order (to reduce per-unit shipping costs),
    is something all of us need to get use to, as more-and-more of our supplies are now only/mostly
    available from on-line suppliers, as opposed to brick-n-mortar stores.

    Just bought one -- loaded but not yet shot.

    They take 127 film. For B&W, that is made by Efke (ISO 100). I believe there is still a color (slide?) made by Fuji in that size.

    If you order in the next week (no Ginsu knives involved), you can get bulk rolls of 46mm HP5 through Freestyle or other Ilford partners. (Of course, for bulk you'd need spools and backing paper.)

    Keep looking for old stock of Konica 46mm school portrait rolls, all bulk loaded. The spools are hard to find, the paper, use used 120 paper cutdown. Find a roll of 127 and remark the 120 paper. Or build a 127 cutter for 120. Can be done.

    Too much trouble, the Yashica 44 looks nice on the shelf. The Yashica 635 fills the small TLR need when I feel like shooting it (not often). Anything bigger and I am firmly into the 120/4x5/5x7/8x10 camp.

    If anyone is feeling adventurous, they can try cutting 120 film down to 127 size. Try Googling "127 film cutter" for a few examples. Also some folks on Flickr have built film cutters, too.
    Those who know, shoot film

    If you cut 120 paper on the correct side and run it backwards (countdown) the 6*45 numbers line up perfectly for a Yashica44 or any 4*4 camera with red window.

    127 is a fun format with cool cameras that get a lot of attention whenever you take them out.
