Gosh, can you still buy 127 film?

Once you go digital, you'll never go back unless you want to pursue some fine arts street film photography with a Leica M2 or M3...

I actually still own several nice 35mm and medium format film cameras for use when I need the best quality for enlarging. You still can't beat film for big enlargements unless you want to spend the time and money stepping, which still requires film to accomplish. Digital IS more convenient and provides instant results.

You can't beat a good lens and larger format for sharp clarity and detail. I still use my 1952 Agfa Isolette on some occasions. 60mm format with an Agnar lens and Pronto shutter that can be pushed to f64 for incredible detail of all things near and far. But that is not necessarily the sort of picture always desired. I really like it for memories of backpacking trips or downtown scenes. And when you project 60mm slides it's awesome. This format has long been used by art museums, curators and historians.

I still use 35mm when I go to car shows. Some shots turn out better than my phone's camera can produce. Some shots are total shite due to operator error. It's a fun hobby. I have 3 or 4 cameras that I currently use film with. This would be a cool addition to my collection.

35mm will work in Brownie camera that previously used 127. There's a book on Kindle called "Kodak Brownie 127: A new lease of life with 35mm film" by Peter Wendes for $2.99.

I am 100% convinced that either Studebaker used the same graphic designers for their ads, or they "adapted and adjusted" (more like ripped off) the lettering for their own use. Compare with this:
unless the Studebaker stuff came first. Then it's the other way around.
