Definitely 127 size. The color slides were sometimes called
"superslides." They fit in an ordinary 35mm projector, but
the projected image was huge. I used to have a 4x4 Rolleiflex
which used this film, and which had superb optics. Unfortunately,
I can't say the same for the E4 (or E3) film I ran through it.
Beautiful at the time, but little left now.

I always thought this format was a great idea, but alas ...

Hi Everyone,
Happy saturday!  I have a whole weekend free to gum print!

Does anyone know anything about a Kodacolor slide film that was taken in the
60's, is square format, measures about 1 1/16" x 1 1 16"?  I've got a number
of slides of that size and they are definitely NOT very resolved/resolute
compared with 35mm Kodachrome, Ectachrome, etc. but they have a certain
fuzzy charm.  Unfortunately my CanoScan cuts off the top 1/16" inch when
