110 Film

I know this has probably been asked 110 times before, but where is 110 film available for a reasonable price?

I don't think so, actually. Can't find much about it in the similar threads below, or on google. Maybe I'm just not searching for the right things!

Blue Moon Camera in Portland has 110 in stock. I believe you can purchase it from their web site: Used and New Cameras and Equipment for Sale: Blue Moon Camera Inventory

Happy Shooting!

In addition to Blue Moon Camera & Machine, the Frugal Photographer has some. The other option is to learn how to rip film and reload.

110 Pocket Instamatic film in the Frugal Photographer catalog

Yup. 110 is getting harder to find. I find it once in awhile in the local drug stores, but expensive.

Rip and reload it probably with way to go. I have to do that with my 126 cartridges and 35mm film.
I picked up a couple of Kodak 500 and 104 instamatics. Still trying to get things dialed in on the
reloading, but have had a couple of good frames.

Search the auctions

that's where i found mine. it's all expired. Well 99% is. I bought approx. 30-40 rolls of Tudor from a seller in the UK. With outrageous shipping I still broke below the avg. selling price of the US sellers. I shot a roll but keep forgetting to send to Dwayne's. I'll be in his neck of the woods for a clan gathering; maybe I'll drop them off then.

110 home processing?

I don't have a darkroom(YET) Just curious to see if anyone has tried to process 110 themselves and the trials/tribulations/results. Thanks.

My favorite photostore had 3 rolls of kodak 200 asa, so i bought it for my pentax 110. After a week they had new stock, and when i asked, the said there was a normal delivery of that film. So maybe kodak is most easy to get?

Kodak supposedly hasn't made any in at least 2 years.

110 film will be available again. This link is german only, but it means that these guys purchased the machines to make them and will offer color and b/w films:

http://www.adox.de/ADOX_Filme/Pocketfilm/110.html

The good news is that today's films are much better than those available when the Pentax Auto 110 was built. This guy sliced Tmax 100 films and used it in his Minox:

Just to compare negative sizes:

- Minox = 8x11 mm
- 110 film = 11x17 mm

The lenses of the Pentax Auto 110 are better than you would expect. Soome people adapt them to their mFt cameras, results are remarkable though they can't stop down the aperture.
