Kodak 127 Rollfilm Cameras Kodak 127 Rollfilm Cameras

Kodak introduced 127 film in 1912 with the advent of the Vest Pocket Kodak. At the time it was considered to be a "miniature" format, but nevertheless soon achieved popularity because of the compact size of the cameras. Indeed, a Vest Pocket Kodak, when folded, is smaller than many 35mm cameras and not much bigger than some Advantix models. The film continued in favour until the 1960's, when the introduction of the cartridge-loading Instamatics meant the general public no longer had to struggle to load rollfilm into their snapshot cameras. The Brownie Fiesta R4 was probably the last 127 roll-film camera to be produced by Kodak. 127 film has been discontinued by the major manufacturers for some time, though Film for Classics, Central Camera Company and The Frugal Photographer can supply, as can some other specialist outlets. Addresses can be found under "finding film" in the "hints'n'tips" section.

Details of the "Autographic" feature, to be found on some of these cameras, can be read in the "hints'n'tips" section.
