Here’s a quick tipster on how you can make your own 127 film out of an old roll of 127 film and a normal 35mm film.
I just bought a cute little box camera on eBay without knowing anything about it. When I received it I noticed that this camera takes some special film I haven’t heard about before: 127 film.
This format is really great! It’s a little smaller than 120 film but bigger than 35 mm film. Unfortunately, you could only get ISO 100 black & white film with this format.
Because I don’t want to only shoot ISO 100 B&W film with my new camera and a normal 35mm film canister wouldn’t fit (like in most 127 cameras), I decided to make my own 127 film. Which is really easy to do.:
You would need:
- an old roll of 127 film
- 35mm film
- darkroom/changing bag
So what you do is that you just stick the 35mm film onto the inner face of the 127 roll where the normal 127 film was attached once and roll it up again. Of course, you have to do this in your darkroom.
Here are some sample shots I’ve done with an ISO 400 film in a 127 roll.
