    While walking out of a gas station convenience store today, I saw something out of the corner of my eye that made me do a double take. Looking at it again, I confirmed that it was indeed 110 film hanging in the display! I did not pull it off to see what kind of film it was or what the expiration date was. But it was DEFINITELY a consumer grade Kodak C41 film of one sort or another (which most 110 film was throughout its existence). Does Kodak seriously still make 110 film? Why would they still find reason to make 110, but axe Kodachrome? Or has this stuff probably been hanging there for the last 15-20 years?

    I think Fuji still produce Superia 200 in 110.

    Until short ago Ferrania offered their CN ISO200 film as type 110 and 126.

    For their pictorial films they have been devoted to snapshot photography. So seemingly they found a market for these formats.

    I know that 110 is still rather popular in Japan; saw both the film and some tiny snap-on cameras for sale in some bookshops alongside the Holgas.
    Guess they fall into the "toy camera" definition?

    The only thing left is some Fuji film that is only available to those in Japan.
