    Mystery 127 Film

    Any ideas what this film is? I got a weird little camera along with a Polaroid SLR 680 here recently, and along with a bunch of spiders and their eggs, there was this roll of 127.

    Contrary to what my profile details may claim, I'm no 127 format expert so I would be much obliged if y'all had any idea what this was and how long I should soak it in HC110.


    Oh yeah, the third/fourth image attached is the camera it came in. Should be fun to see what's on the roll. if anything.

    By the backing paper it looks like VerichromePan

    I would be really surprised - there is no Kodak insignia or film type indicator on it anywhere, and I don't think I have every observed that with Kodak film.

    Actually I already have a few rolls of it, I actually use it to reroll for the special HP5+ for re-rolling, so I've seen the paper but I can't exactly on roll it much to show you because there's film inside...

    But mine doesn't say kodak either...

    But it certainly came from a VerichromePan roll (there's even an image shot with the original film in my gallery, I believe it's of lettuce or a garden in my back yard).

    But here's my roll...

    So do I assume correctly that you are seeing edge printing that tells you it is Verichrome Pan, but there is no printing on the backing paper that identifies it?

    If so, I'm guessing that someone has re-rolled that film.

    Is there edge printing on both sides of the film? If not, I'm wondering if the film started out as 120, and was cut down.

    There may once have been 46mm Verichrome Pan in long rolls. If so, maybe that is where your film came from.

    What are the edge numbers like - do they progress normally from 1 - 12?

    I think you are a little confused, you can still purchase old boxes of their Verichrome Pan 127 Film...

    The role you are seeing is a role that I originally purchased and opened from the box directly on out before I opened it. It was most certainly VerichromePan...

    I actually have one more box left to shoot.

    But the picture I posted is a picture of the role that originally was VerichromePan, but after shooting the original roll, I rerolled some 46mm HP5+ that was in a bulk roll... That's all, so I can unroll the entire piece of paper to show you the entire thing because there is film inside that is waiting to be shot...

    Anyway it is possible of course that there were other backing papers that had the same exact color with the silver ink, but I'm pretty sure that kodak used different backing papers for different films, and that the OP's roll is VerichromePan...

    Oh and about the edge numbers, there are two different sets of numbers there are three numbers in a row in the center depending on which camera you use these go from 1 to 8 or 1 to 10 I believe, and then there are a single line of numbers on the right side of the role that go from 1 to 12 this is of course for different format framing.

    Here is the 127 Verichrome Pan that I am familiar with: http://m4.i.pbase.com/g5/29/663529/3...4.CNr6Oy5Q.jpg

    That is an image I found using Google.

    I am too young to know what 127 Verichrome looked like .

    Any chance, Stone that what you have is Verichrome, not Verichrome Pan?

    And with respect to the numbering, I wasn't talking about the numbers on the backing paper, but rather the numbers edge printed on to the film.
