A friend at work just brought me an early birthday present, a 1920s Kodak Vest Pocket camera measuring 2.5" x 4.5" and about 0.75" thick that she found when cleaning out her late mom's house (Dad was a photog for the Lorain County Journal in Ohio after WWII; no, she didn't find any big honking Speed Graphics, dagnabbit). So cute! Here's the interesting thing: lens is super clean, clear, no dust, no fungus; the "Kodak Ball Bearing" shutter (T, B, 25, 50) works and looks accurate when compared to a leaf shutter about whose accuracy I'm certain, bellows worn but seem light tight, and there's a take-up spool for the required 127 film. Loading looks pretty durn tricky, but what the heck. Though I read recently that 127 was shortly going to be phased out completely, even from specialty sources, places like filmforclassics.com still seem to have some. Anybody ever shot 127? or with a Vest Pocket? or another kind as old as this? To me, at least, playing with this kind of camera seems so much more compelling than messing with a digital SLR.
