    Shot the last roll of VP127 I could find through this one a few years ago. I made a contact sheet and printed one frame enlarged to 7" square.

    here are some scans. Focus not as good as some of my old boxes and it was a windy day as well so this was about the limits of this one's ability. Cute little plastic critter though. I would like to take this one out again, saved the spools and the backing paper so who knows. $009 - Copy.JPG $img042e1.jpg $img048e1.jpg $img055e1.jpg $img056e1.jpg

    Very nice pictures. I don't think you have any problems with focus, after all it is focus-less camera which relies on dept of field for sharpness. Was never intended to produce prints bigger then post card size. Anything bigger will get softer and softer. You did a good job.
    You can get more 127 film from here:
    The Frugal Photographer
    or in Toronto here:
    FilmPlus | 416-535-3747 | Toronto, Canada
    Pricey a bit.

    One of those came with my wife as the dowry. That was 53 years ago and I still have both.

    Your welcome. For kicks; if you have the spools and paper backing why not use a 35 mm film. I will be a bit "lomographic", but for fun ?

    2WheelPhoto : thanks

    timor : yes, going to try that and crop out the holes (groans from the lomo afficionados..) also have an idea for a jig to cut down 120 in the dark without losing knuckle bits.

    Rick58 : thanks. your signature line pretty much sums up why I like to keep the old cheapies running, sort of in honour of the memories they put in the albums and shoeboxes of our lives.

    I think the OP is a very good example that it isn't the camera that makes the photo -- it's the photographer. ;)
