Ilford ULF window is open - a way to purchase bulk 127 film

 Ilford's annual Ultra Large Format (ULF) sale is open until Friday, August 19, 2022.

Once a year, Ilford opens the ULF ordering window. If they receive enough orders, they make the year's batch of "specialist" sizes of various films - including 50' rolls of 46mm wide HP5+ - also known as 127 size!

If you purchase a roll, you'll need to spool lengths of the film from the 50' bulk roll onto backing paper and spools, which you'll have to supply from elsewhere (re-use is definitely an option :-)

Participating retailers in many countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are listed here.

Tomorrow is 127 Day!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, the 12th of July, 2022, is 127 Day!

127 Film Photography will feature 127-format photographs made on the 12th of July, 2022, in a special online exhibition. You're invited to participate!

No fees, no competition, just a friendly virtual community joining together to make 127-format photos on
the 12th of July, 2022.

To show your work,

  1. Take 127-format photographs on the 12th of July, 2022.
  2. Send one of your 127-format photographs that you took on the 12th of July to 127 Film Photography. Please email one jpg file, 500 pixels wide, to 127filmformat ~at~ gmail.com, by August 12, 2022. (This allows a month to get your film developed and scanned).
  3. In the subject line of your email, type "July 2022 127 Day."
  4. In the body of the email, please include the following information: copyright symbol, year, your name, the title of the photograph, location, camera and film types, and your website address (or other link to your work). In that order. Please follow this example EXACTLY (you don't have to use initials if you prefer to be known by your full name!). If you want to direct people to an Instagram page, please use the URL for the page, not an "@" handle (which will not work as a link).

All types of 127 film format* are welcome, whether the film began its existence as 127, or you used 35 mm film in a 127 camera, or you respooled 46mm film, or you cut down 120 film to 127 size ... or maybe you have a technique that I don't know about yet - if so, please tell me so I can share it with others who love this format (with full credit to you, of course - or perhaps you'd like to write an article for 127 Film Photography about it!). Photos made on 127 film in a different size camera are welcome too.

127 Film Photography will publish all photos received (as long as they are in 127 format and do not contain images of nudity, violence, or exploitation). 
 
I look forward to seeing your 127 Day photos! 
 
 
*Sorry, digital photos in an aspect ratio similar to 127 film (or any other digital photos) do NOT qualify.

Welcome to the 127 Day online exhibition for January 27, 2022! Twenty-six artists in seven countries across four continents joined together virtually on January 27, 2022, using 127-format analogue media, to make these photographs, using a remarkable 19 different cameras. I encourage you to page down to see the wonderful variety of individual styles, subject matter, and films.

If you photograph on film or other analogue media in 127 film format, you're invited to join us for the next 127 Day, on  the 12th of July 27, 2022.
 
Enjoy!
