The 127 film was created by Kodak for their Vest Pocket model.

It is a paperbacked rollfilm, 4cm wide, originally designed to store eight pictures in 4x6.5cm format.

In 1930, during the Great Depression, the camera makers tried to optimize the use of film, and cameras began to appear taking 16 exposures in 3x4cm format on the 127 film, the first one being the Zeiss Ikon Kolibri.
