    Several years ago I played a lot with my Yashica 44. Efke film got too expensive. I did re-roll some APX100 120 after cutting it down on my lathe with a sharp knife. That worked OK but re-rolling it is a lot of bother. I also have some Portra 160 and some Konica 160 color in long rolls. That works, I have a local place that will process it for me... but really, for all the trouble, I have enough 120 cameras lying around to keep me busy for a long time.

    Not that I am getting rid of the Yashica. What a nice camera.

    I have a new-to-me Gray Baby Rollei and a dozen rolls of Efke R100 supposed to be delivered today.

    I develop old B/W films, stored at room temperature for 12 years+, by shooting at 1/2 box speed, process in d76 1:1 for 1.3x nominal time with the addition of 0.3cc per 120 roll of 1% benzotriazole solution in isopropyl alcohol. Works like a charm

    I have a Rolleiflex 4x4 from 1938 that I sometimes use. I wish Efke 25 (or 50) was available in 127.

    I've used a number of 127 cameras, including mostly folders. I've used Efke, Maco and Adox. All curl very badly, so I load the film backward onto the spool, which seems to help a bit.

    I recently picked up a 127 camera that had a Kodak Verichrome Pan in it. I processed it in D-76, and nearly all of the images were usable. I would reckon that the shots were from the 1950s.

    See the photos here.

    Don't tempt me, guys--I would need to pick up a new negative carrier. Are all 127 cameras 4x4, or are there rectangular formats too?

    I have an Ihagee Parvola that shoots 6x4.5 on 127. Last time I used it (around 15 years ago), Kodak still made color 127 film. Last month I picked up a Parvola on e-bay that takes 3x4 photos on 127.

    I have a Cragstan Zen-99 with a fixed 70mm f/11 Kowa Prominar lens. I can get either 4x4 or 4x6 (cm) images from it. I just picked up a similar Light Super with a 70mm Uera Light Optical Works lens. These two cameras are identical in design (except that the Light Super has a flash sync connection while the Zen-99 doesn't) and are basically toy cameras from the early 60's but are made of metal rather than plastic. I'm part of a local group called the Ann Arbor Area Crappy Camera Club (A3C3) for which these cameras clearly qualify. Pure fun. http://www.crappycameraclub.org/index.html http://www.flickr.com/groups/krappy/

    The Zen-99 is currently loaded with Ektachrome 100 purchased from B&H in NY.

    I also have a Yashica 44. All of my film is Efke. Some is labeled Jessops but all of it is in the freezer. I have some stainless steel (Nikor?) 127 reels as well as Paterson reels/tanks which could be used. I find the Efke film a little curly and not terribly fine grained but with some care nice results can be obtained. I have some Kodak Imagelink HQ which was cut down to 127 for me a while ago. I might try a roll while the weather is good.

    There is a group in Calgary, Alberta , Canada that bought an abandoned
    film factory and put it back into production. They ship world-wide from a
    warehouse in Idaho U.S.A.. Fresh 127 and chemicals.
