It is 100 years since 127 film was launched, once the mainstay of family photography, it is now obsolete.
To mark this centenary year, I plan to use as many 127 film cameras as I can.

127 camera No. 1 - Gelto D-III
I used the Gelto D-III in week 10 of my 52 cameras in 52 weeks project, but that was before I had got any 127 film, and I re-spooled some 35mm film in order to use the camera. There was a problem with out of focus centres, most likley caused by the re-spooled film not lying flat in the film plane. I liked the results, but I think this gorgeous little gold camera deserves a proper roll of 127 film, so I've loaded it with Macocolor ISO200 colour negative film. The f3.5 lens. and the range of shutter speeds means that I should be able to use it over the next few dull winter weeks.
