ASA 200 shot at 100 (Auto 110)

Right now I have a roll of C-41 ASA/ISO 200 film in my Auto 110 but am shooting it at 100 because the camera understands only that and 400. Obviously the film is overexposed.

Question: should I mention this to the lab? I'm unfamiliar with the C-41 process so I don't know if it allows for this situation.

Or am I better off having the film developed normally and trying to make corrections during the printing process?

Thanks!

For anyone who might be wondering, most available 110 film these days is 200. I have a few rolls of Kodak Ultra 400 that I'm hoarding as I haven't seen any for sale lately.

One stop over is usually fine with print film... though you would want to compensate when there are highlights you don't want blown.

Which leads me to a thought - I don't know the camera at all - is there exposure compensation? if so, just set that to compensate -1 and presto, you have ASA200.

I do believe most professional labs can do pull processing. Don't even try the one-hour places though.

I've got a roll of Kodak MAX 400 that was still in my mom's super program when I got it and the camera was set for ISO 100. It's been sitting there since at least '04 so likely will get back blanks, but for the entertainment value I took it over to Walgreens and asked them if they could pull it to ISO 100 - the expressions of blank bewilderment on their faces was beautiful. I plan to drop it off when I take my next couple rolls of B&W over to the real lab and see if anything is left for them to pull up.

I send my 110 film to Dwayne's in Kansas and I'd be surprised if they couldn't pull-process it.

Unfortunately the Auto 110 doesn't have any compensation ability. The "Super" version that was made in the early '80s does but I don't have one, I don't have much luck finding them, and when I do find them they're pretty expensive.

Thanks!

Funny, didn't ever know you could pull C-41. Never did come up, I guess.

I rate most color print a third of a stop or two lower as a general practice, anyway, though. For the most part, as someone said, you should be OK as long as you weren't already kind of pushing the envelope on your highlights.

I send my 110 to DeWayne's. It wouldn't hurt to tell them it was shot at 100.
