    A modified type 110 film and camera

    I never used type 110, so this is a wild guess:



    What about self-spooling type 110 cartridges

    -) with self-cut film without backing paper

    -) into a cartridge with an open back

    -) used in a Pentax 110 modified with a pressure plate


    Would this work?
    The aim is of course to yield better precision of the film plane.

    110 film is 16mm in a cassette. If you are careful, you can take the cassettes apart, reload, and reuse. Our local Radio Shack had a few rolls on the shelf, I asked what was to become of them since they were several years expired, and was told they would sit until purchased(by the husband). I went in to buy them this morning and was told they were tossed in the trash(by the wife). Oh well, thats life.

    But type 110 has backing paper and it is the cartridge that positions the film. It reminds me a bit of the issue with cine Super 8 cartridges.

    Just out of curiosity; why would you want to do something like this with such a small format?

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Check out the Minolta 16 cameras they can be had for cheap on the bay. They have a film cartridge but have a pressure plate in the camera. You can reload the cartridges and find film on ebay.

    The idea was to improve on the Pentax 110 by modifying the film/camera interface, a bit like the Minox camera and cartridge.
    Just an idea I had, when reading about the Pentax being useless due to that 110 cartridge.

    i think 110 cartridges are still being sold,
    at least here in the states they are.

    i bought 100 of them off of eBoink a few years ago ( for cheep!).
    i am down to about 15 or 20 rolls,
    when i run out, i will get a "slitter" and spool my own b/w ...
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details

    Most 16mm cameras will do that. The cartridges are re-usable. The pressure plate relaxes for film advance, then tightens for the shot. And , of course, no backing paper. Look for Minolta 16 cameras. They probably have cartridges that are the easiest to find.

    Converting a 110 camera to 16mm is likely difficult because the film advance in many 110 cameras requires some weird holes in the film which are only found in 110 film and not easily reproduced.
