Where the devil do you buy a long roll of 46mm film these days?
not sure you can? that B&W right? and is that for a 4x4
Yes its for the 127 you sent me. I dont mind the color either I saw some on ebay but he wont sell to me lol. We both live in the same state he is worried about the boogy tax man.
I also don't have a quality 127 camera yet so I'm going to just look around ebay for a while. I could almost do with unperf 35mm. It seems to shoot pretty much complete in the paper. Probably a 16inch on each side left over. All in all not bad but heck I cant find that either.
The only new stock I know of is Efke R100 (b&w) but I cannot seem to find it in a long roll. The bad think about that film is that the emulsion in very thin.
Found the 46mm on eBay you mentioned but noticed that its C41 film. How to you plan to process it? I would buy it for you but the double shipping would be a killer. I have a few extra rolls if you want I can send you them.
No thanks i'll find some after i determine that the camera works... You can have a one hour lab process the negs then im going to scan them.
Shouldnt be any problem
That’s true but a lot of 1-hour labs don’t want to deal with any think out of the normal.
You do have to know the people and they are getting scare darn it. That is the one more thing I hate about digital. It is going to kill the labs that I have used for years. I'm terrified to send out the 127 for fear of losing the spools.
I suppose one of the vintage processors will be doing it with spool return for ten times what it is worth. I wish I could find black and white. Wonder if I could find bulk rool 120 that would be good for both my rollfilm use. I could just cut it down for the 127.
I have been giving it some thought and I think I have decided to do this... I will cut a strip off the rear of a 120 roll equal to 10 frames of 127.
make myself a jig and trim it two 1 3/4 inches to give me a little play at the edges. Tape both ends to the paper that will hold it tight.
Then reroll the 120 to make a short roll for my studio 120 camera. Meanwhile I will continue to look for bulk 46mm on ebay.
Does that sound reasonable to you... and I wonder how man frames that will leave me on the 120 roll.
Just check the B&H’s site they have Kodak 46mm color film. But no B&W.
As for re-cutting 120 that want the vintage processors do for E6. But not sure how they cut it? I recall see some sample of homemade cutter that used an old 120-camera body. A razor blade was some how mounded in body so that as the film was feed from one reel to other it was cut.
Also I can’t recall ever seeing 120-bulk film?
120 find 120 bulk either. I have seen those cutters but I think im going to just make a jig and use scissors I dont plan to cut that much. If I can find 46mm I might just shoot that. Thanks jeff.
