    You can make some backing paper by cutting down some 120 discards. But you would need a pattern.

    That's probably what I will do. I do have some lightweight black opaque construction paper that I think could also work as it seems about the same weight as the real backing paper but I'd have to find it in roll format.

    As far as a pattern, I did just win an *Bay auction for an Instamatic 104 with 2 126 cartridges (Kodakcolor II) and paid less than 5 dollars. The film itself is likely worthless but the carts and backing paper will be useful. There are also lots of 110 cameras out there with old film included, too. Many of these camera outfits appear to be unused, NIB.
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    I recently ran a 126 roll from 1983 and got pictures. Not great, but they did come out.

    I put a used flash cube on top of my K-104 to force the slower shutter speed and shot in daylight. Then I over developed the film by 30 seconds. DIY C-41 is fun.

    I now have 4 126 carts reloaded with fresh Portra 160nc, waiting to be used.

    I still can find color 110 film at camera swaps but it is getting scarce. New 110 and 126 would be amazing.

    I've just used the backing paper from 110 carts. I have a few very outdated 110 films and cannibalised them, dumped the film and re-loaded with cut-down 35mm FP4 backed with the original paper. It lasts a long time, but if I needed to make any I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to slice it down from 120 in a similar way to slicing the film. I use a pair of Stanley blades in a jig with a fat spacer and shims for fine adjustment. A hinged lid clamps everything in place and two guides keep the film straight as it's drawn through.

    The main thing is to have fun!

    Best wishes,

    Steve

    The value of my Pentax auto 110 cameras and lenses just skyrocketed :-)

    Though I am not exactly a fan of that Lomography hipster stuff I ordered a few films...

    Does someone know what sort of film is actually inside?


    Hope that Adox finally starts the 110 cartridge machines, too.

    Well...you'd have to disassemble the film cartridges and re-wrap the film in the backing paper, then reassemble the cartridges properly (all in the dark), in order for it to be an effective light-trap. Probably more trouble than just unloading in the dark.

    More to the point, does anyone have a source for C-41 processing of 110 film? I have a few rolls needing processing. Perhaps Dwayne's in Kansas City?

    There are several I have tried out. The Best C41 process and print for 110 is by Blue Moon Camera.

    See here for labs that process 110 film.

    Eh...whoever makes the film it would be hard to go too wrong with 7 min. at 68F in D-76. Glad I still have some stainless steel 110 reels.
