  3. Wow, never seen one as old as that first one. I've got a Yashica 44, which is nice, but no Rolleiflex. I think the big thing for a brief time was Superslides, which would have been a nice step up from 35mm.
  4. I have a Yashica 44A that currently has a roll of respooled HP5+ in it. I hope to finish it soon.
    The super slides from that format were fun, although I didn't have the Yashica when 127 slide film was available. An interesting fact about the 127 format: in a late 50's or maybe early 60's photography magazine the writer was predicting that 127 was "the format of the future".
