Default Brownie 127

I remember the price of one of these as being 1-7-6 in old money (One pound seven and six), or for those not of a certain age- One pound thirty seven and a half Pence.

I have a 'Brownie' in the 120 format, so it's easier to get film for it.

If it's workings are the same, it'll have no user controls, with one shutter speed (mine is 1/40 second, for some reason) and if you're lucky a sunny and a cloudy option for the aperture. Focus will be best at the centre with it quickly softening around the outside.

It's a very basic camera, but I like to take it out regularly, as it gives a certain look that more modern SLR's just don't give you. It's solidly made and should last you out.

Viva la old cameras!

Mine still had a price ticket on it (very lax for a gift) of about 25/6 or thereabouts. I've seen them on fleamarkets and similar.
I had the 120 for a while until recently, the earlier model with the glass Kodet lens which had a known aperture ( f15 if I remember) and a regular pc socket so could readily be used with flash for accurate exposures. I donated it to my regular charity shop, I preferred 120 folders.

The wife had one when we were still courting. A great camera for shots in reasonable light conditions. You pressed the button and it did the rest However I am not telling anyone here anything new but the problem with any 127 is finding film for it at a reasonable price these days.

It looks the part and I have often wondered if it might be a novelty for kids as it is quite big but light in weight but the 127 is a bit of a "downer" for me

Totally agree Mike. As I said in my previous post, the film size and availability of it, was the main reason I bought a 120 film version.

Sorry Pete, we are probably putting most of your customers off, but there's bound to be someone out there who has a way around the 127 problem and will buy it.
