Would anyone know where I can get some (preferably B&W) 127 roll film?

I've tried Amazon, but all that came up was 120 roll film.

In short, "No". 127 is nigh on impossible to find anymore, but you do have options. You can trim a roll of 120 to fit on a 127 take-up spool, or you can actually fit a 35mm film onto the backing paper of a 127 film. Other than that, best of luck finding anything in 127 except those uptake spools or sadly outdated 1969 films.

That's kind of annoying. :(

As you can probably guess, from my username, I've got a Purma Special camera, which I'd like to try out.

Thanks anyway.

You can find vintage (out dated) 127 film on Etsy and new 127 film cut to size on eBay.

Thanks for that. I'll take a look on Ebay.

I don't fancy using out of date film.
