Default 110 Film

Although deemed maybe as toy camera usage, I am glad to see that lomo are now selling brand new 110 film in B/W and colour, now need to dust off my Minolta 110 Zoom SLR Mk11 And then have a go at developing this film.

I'd be interested to see what kind of results it's capable of.

Poddy, I can't speak for other enlargers but Durst made 110 masks for its enlargers so printing is/was possible. 110 masks seem quite scarce but the odd one comes up on e-bay.

I have to say I had a 110 camera once - didn't we all back in the days of cheap snaps once a year when on holiday - but I could never really take to it.

So not a format I have any desire to go back to but good luck with your Minolta

Mike

I've never seen images taken with the Minolta, but Pentax also used to make a 110 SLR with a small range of lenses. Also available for it was an auto winder and flashgun. I understand the lenses were made to the same optical standard as their 35mm equivalents and the results were quite reasonable despite the limitations of the 110 film format.

Possibly resurrecting an old thread.

I have the MK1 Minolta Zoom 110 SLR and it was capable of very good results, within the limitation of the 110 format.

I've recently tried the Lomo Tiger ISO200 colour negative 110 film with a Haline Telewide and the film is as good as anything ever released for the format, in my opinion. Colours are lovely, not too over-saturated and the images are sharp.

My minolta Zoom 110 has a problem with the shutter, hence being retired circa 1985. The shutter fires but after a tiny fraction of a second there appears an object between the lens and shutter.
