110 Film
« on: November 12, 2017, 10:21:22 PM »
Anyone here using 110 film and cameras?  I've been working on landscape and street projects with a Pentax Auto 10 and Diana Baby 110.

I have a Minolta 110 Zoom SLR and a bunch of expired film.  I haven’t taken it out in a few years, maybe I’ll run a roll through it soon.  I like it’s macro capability.

I usually don't think of 'landscape' and 'subminiature' at the same time but, thinking about it, I've used a Minolta 16II for landscape type long shots.
That's a 10X14mm negative, even smaller than 110 film format in the Pentax 110 Auto if I recall.
I have so many irons in the fire right now, photographic hobby wise, that I don't know when I'd get back to 16mm. I've toyed with the idea of getting a few rolls of some T-grain B&W in 35mm just to slit down to 16mm. Should be able to get 3 rolls for the Minolta 16 out of a 36 exp. roll.

I've got a Pentax Auto 110, but not used it at all this year, more's the pity as it's a nice little camera with a trio of nice little lenses. This is one of my shots from its last outing in 2016.

Should have posted this too, as I got the Pentax as a complete package.

Just kind of wish we had nicer options than the lomo film. Something fine-grain would be nice.

I've not got a 110 camera but I like the look of that seascape, the grainy resolution works really well in that context.

I was thinking about it and I have two 110 cameras in boxes. I've never used any of them since I got them at them time when there was no film available for them. One if them is a collapsible Agfa sensor with the super sensitive orange button. The other is a Kodak cameo with a built in motor drive!

I've used it a little bit. I have a few cartridges in my freezer that I'll probably never use.

I shot a bit with mcduff's Auto 110 when he was active on here. The tiger image was stolen and used as a sample on an online store somewhere... I will admit that I liked shooting with the auto 110. It was compact and very portable and capable in its use. The lenses were a neat feature.

Out of curiosity I checked for 110 film on the Lomography site. Currently they are 'out of stock' on just about everything. Wonder of this means they are going to drop the format. This is one reason I like my Minolta 16 cameras. As long as I can obtain 16mm or slit down from 35mm (lot of waste though) I can reload my clutch of cartridges. The Minolta doesn't even need prefs to advance the film. Another advantage is cost, with 16mm film, less than $1 per 20exp roll. The 110 carts were never meant to be reloaded and most all 110 cameras relied on the one perf per frame to position the frames and sometimes tension the shutter.

Tri-X is readily available in 16mm movie film, 100 feet for $40.  Even though it's marketed as reversal you can develop it as negative.  The remjet layer is easy to remove with a sodium carbonate solution.  I'm not sure if this is single perf or double perf, it's hidden in the product code.

A good selection of film at the Film Photography Podcast Store.  I buy mine there and locally.

Got an unopened 100ft. of that. Still working on my last 100ft. roll of Double-X. I am curious about the grain of the Tri-X, the DX is fairly grainy developed in 60:1 HC-110 used as a one shot.

For all those interested in 110 film, the Share the Love thread (http://www.filmwasters.com/forum/index.php?topic=9379.msg127034#msg127034)
has a lovely offer from SLVR who is willing to part with some cassettes of Lomo Tiger and Lomo Peacock film!
