I have been told that there is some alteration needed on the newer 110 film cassettes if it's a higher speed (like 400), so that the camera doesn't read it as 80 or 100 speed. Is this true? and if so, what would that alteration be?

Fukkatsu 400 is correctly clipped.

Full tab os 80/100/200 and clipped is 320/400



Auto110 is normally set at the factory as 80 and 320.

Many moons ago my then girlfriend had an Auto 110. We tried using Kodachrome 64 in it but it came out under-exposed. I now know why!

Hi, guys. I'm new here, from Malaysia. Am waiting a delivery of Pentax Auto 110.

I have been developing B&W and C-41 films at home (though the results were not so good). I haven't really seen a 110 film yet, but I know they are still available in the market. May be a silly question to ask here, 110 film can be developed by hand like other 35mm films?

Yes, except that the film is 16mm (half as wide) and won't work with 35mm reels.

Thanks Steve.

I googled and came to know that it's not as easy as 35mm film where we can retrieve the film leader from the canister by using film picker before putting it into the changing bag. The 110 film cartridge need to break off (and remove the backing paper) in the changing bag; is it easy to do so? (sorry, I haven't seen a real 110 film yet)

Depending on maker, some cartridges can be twisted by gripping at the canister ends and twisting until you hear cracks and snaps. Crushing the take-up end (portion with the gear) along the walls both at the picture plane and outer edge can pop the seam. With the Lomography cartridges, I've had no problem twisting to open.
