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. :(

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.
