    Now, if only they provided film for Minolta 16mm cameras...

    What kind of film do they need? Other perforation?

    Just received my Lomographic Orca 110 film. The box clearly says "Made in China", so that answers one of my questions. Still not sure what it is. As brianmquinn points out, the times are an exact copy of that from the Massive Developing Chart for Orwo UN54. Even in the same order. Could it be some Chinese factory buys Orwo film, perforates it for 110, and loads it into 110 cassettes?
    Also interesting is that both the box and the sticker on the cassette proudly says "1st Production Run". What is not included is an expiration date. Not that it matters to me as I keep all my film stock in the freezer so I don't care what the date is.
    I put a cassette in my Minolta Weathermatic 110, and will be shooting it in the coming days. It will be interesting to see the results.

    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    Perhaps they have made a deal to get some film in 16mm Unperforated. The standard 16mm movie perfs would not work will with the 110 format. I would imagine that the folks at lomography having designed a bunch of quirky cameras may have not trouble paying a Chinese factory to tool up to convert film into 100 format including making cassette tooling and deigning a machine ot do the pre-exposure of the frame markings.

    I am sure that some in the group would love to see pictures of the film, the backing paper (if any) and the cassette when you get a chance to develop it. This is actually a good news item for any of us who despair of using things like a Pentax 110. I have a bunch of Fuji color 200 in the freezer but would probably have to mail it to the states to get it processed if I shoot any.

    Now if they were to load some with HP5 or 400TX or Foma action 400...I might get into action.

    OH, the very collectible "first production run" that should be worth extra some day.

    For the upthread guy who uses 126 film-- it's the same as 828 film, IIRC, which is still available albeit expensive. Kodak just kept up their 828 lines, and put a plastic cartridge around the end product. Buy a couple rolls of 828 and you should be able to reuse the BP a lot. Or just keep buying 828 and stuff it into the cartridge, if you have the dosh.

    828 is harder to find than 126 and has been out of production for about two decades. It was also shorter then 126 film giving about 8 shots a roll and does not have the proper perforations to sub. for 126 film.

    About the only similarities is that both are 35mm wide, both have a paper backing.

    I've shot one roll of the new Orca 110 and I want to develop it at home. I don't have a proper 110 reel for it so I'll probably just wrap it around a small cylinder of some sort that fits in my tank. but my question is about getting the film out of the cartridge. It went completely into the cartridge when I finished the roll so I assume that I'll have to break it open in the dark bag to get the film out. Is there an easy way to break the cartridge open?
