    I've just won my first vintage camera! It's a baby brownie and the seller said the camera is coming with the original box and little wear (at least from what can be seen.) I know that occasionally modern film can be used to replace the older film that has been discontinued. The film size is 127 and the picture size is 1 5/8 by 2 1/2

    Any Advice?

    I've been trying google with no luck so far. :(

    It's always worth checking Retro Photographic for unusual film sizes (for example, they sell 8x11mm miniature film for Minox 'spy' cameras).

    Anyway, they seem to have two different films in 127:

    Thank you! That's just what I am looking for.:D

    Hopefully the film will be the only thing it needs.

    If you're in the US, call Freestyle Photographic (freestylephoto.biz). They're the US distributor for Efke/Adox/Maco and would be the source for those films on this side of the pond.

    Thanks, that would make life even easier. :thumbup:

    I think next time I will confirm that there is available film for a camera before I start bidding on it.

    Have a look at :

    http://macodirect.de/filme-maco-c-1_6_119.html

    Maco have Jan/08 for 10 rolls for 16.8 euro. The down side for a Baby Brownie owner is the minimum order is ~40.00 Euros. Plus postage. It may be way more than you want to spend on such a camera.

    I just bought 30 rolls for the Yashica-44 and with postage to Australia it comes out at US$3/roll. I've seen reels only for that price on e-bay.

    Otherwise Digital Truth has Efke 100 in 127 for $4.50 or so.
