Roll film 1271 is used in the ‘Baby’ Rolleiflex 4×4 cm (1⅝×1⅝ in).

It looks like FilmFerrania, who have re-started film production in Italy, have rescued a machine for packaging 127 film but there are no immediate plans for the production of 127 film. Production of P30 B/W film has restarted but in 135 and 120 film only.

The links below take you the home pages of the shops rather than to the actual product pages. I know, it looks like I am being rewarded by the shopkeepers to let you browse the entire shop in order to boost their sales, before finding 127 size film. The thing is, product pages change faster than I can update the links, so while at the site please do a “search” for the product you are interested in. Availability of 127 film has vastly improved. There are many more shops that sell 127 film.
