New resource for 127 film photography

Just in time for 127 Day, I've launched a new resource for 127 film photography, 127 Film.

127 Day comes three times a year.
  • January 27 (1/27, in American-style notation)
  • July 12 (12/7, in European-style notation)
  • December 7 (12/7, in American-style notation)

It's a day to remind ourselves to take out those quirky old cameras that use 127 film - and make pictures with them!

The next 127 Day is almost here - Friday, January 27, 2017. If you use 127 film, or you've considered using 127 film, or you have a dusty old 127-format camera in the back of your closet, this is the time to get ready to make 127-format pictures!

I invite you to send me one picture taken on 127 film on Friday, January 27. There are more details here. I'll publish all of the pictures I receive - hopefully from around the world.

I also plan to publish:
  • reader questions - all readers are invited to respond to questions in the comments section
  • photographs and/or series of photographs made on 127 film
  • articles about 127 film photography.
Images of nudity, violence, or exploitation will not be published on the site.

I welcome your comments, suggestions, and 127 film photographs at 127FilmFormat ~at~ look forward to enjoying this format together.


  1. How cool is this?!
    Please don't make me buy any more cameras on eBay.

    1. Thank you so much, Jim! You mean you, of all people, don't have *any* 127 cameras? I'm afraid I can't comment on that :-)
