    I have a roll of 127 Kodachrome II in my freezer haha

    Strangely no camera that takes it... I think I got it with a lot as a "bonus"

    Didn't Patton use a Leica M39 RF, though?

    Patton probably invented the Leica.

    There are at least 3 different type 127 films (all by Maco) on the market:

    -) ISO 80 b&w

    -) ISO 800 CN-41 (twisted, for redscale effect) One might try to re-twist!

    -) ISO 200 E-6

    I have a roll of recent Efke film in 127, procured through Freestyle, but don't know anything about its current availability.

    I love the Argus C3 as well, and have a few of them. Terribly underrated cameras!

    That's what I figured, AgX. Freestyle seems to have a bit of remaining Efke stock at present, but other than that, only Rollei Crossbird and Nightbird are available. It seems that with regard to "regular" B&W and color negative film, the 127 format is pretty much dead now.

    That b&w film is also still available in Germany and quite "regular".

    And a 800 ISO colour film... ist that not ideal for a MF low speed camera?

    For a wartime 35mm I second the Kodak 35, from what I recall Kodak made a miltary version is olive drap or black, I have seen a few that were modified for use with parascopes. But the Speed was the most common camera in use, at the end of the war the Combat Speed was issued and were used as late as Vietman.

    That is a wicked cool photo. A "brick" on a brick with a brick wall background. Each brick subject has an aperture too.
