    Ugh, where in Japan would I get 110 film then I wonder? I've got my grandfather's Auto 110 back home in the States that I'd like to put back into action.
    Those who know, shoot film

    This is good to know! I might just have to stop at Walgreen's and pick up some film for my 110 cameras!

    Now just to find disc film ...

    Well, someone is using Kodak paper, Kodak envelopes, and Kodak logos then. Not to mention the Kodak address in Rochester.

    It's like the Lenovo laptops - IBM logo, IBM brands (ThinkPad), IBM help software, IBM screen savers, IBM etc..., but it's Lenovo!

    Here in the UK Kodak passed their colour print processing service to a large mail order outfit which operates under various names - Bonusprint, Tripleprint etc. For former Kodak customers they continue to provide Kodak labelled mailing envelopes, Kodak labelled print wallets, Kodak labelled CD-ROM's etc. Prints are made on Kodak paper too. I'm not clear whether they still do 110 processing.

    As to Disc film, that hasn't of course been made for years and 110 which came out before disc has outlived it. I can't say I'm sorry as my experience with Disc was that the results were quite grainy. APS is still alive as well and Fuji still make it in an 800 ISO speed which you can't seem to buy over here anymore.

    I just developed my first roll of 110 today! It was some of the Walgreens special...2 rolls for $5. I took it to work to see if they could do it (I need to push it) and it worked on a 120 dip & dunk rack. I must say...what a terrible size of film! I absolutely hate it...and it was the most fun I've had in a long time! Confused? So was I. Basically, I got a crappy toy camera from China that is essentially a one time use camera that isn't really limited to one time use. Plastic from top to bottom. Total piece of JUNK. And, like I said, the most fun. Go figure!

    So I'm back in the States now, and looking for 110 film. Ironic; when I wasn't looking for it I found it downtown (Fuji Superia 100 I think it was.)
    Now I'm back in Boston with my Auto 110 and can't find film anywhere (Ritz & Bromfield camera almost laughed at me :^) ) I've yet to hit Walgreens however - if I find any I post here again.
    There's also the problem of scanning once I've gotten negs done. Can I just put the negs straight on the flatbed & scan them to get jpegs?

    I bought some at Walgreens a couple of years ago; however, my local Walgreens' film section has withered substantially since then, and I haven't checked for 110 film recently. It is listed on their Web site, but that's not a guarantee it'll be available in any given store. Of course, you could always just order it from the Walgreens Web site, from B&H, or wherever.

    I scanned a bunch of old family photos a while back, some of them on 110 film. I used a Polaroid SprintScan with a custom-made negative carrier (read: a couple pieces of cardboard with appropriately-sized cutouts). This worked fine. I imagine that the trickiest part of using a flatbed for this purpose would be getting the negatives positioned appropriately and not touching the glass. (Negatives touching flatbed scanner glass equals Newton rings problems, in my experience.) You might need to create a custom negative carrier out of cardboard or something.

    I cleaned out my local Wal-Mart - they had 20 rolls in stock and I bought them all. I'm going to check out the Walgreen's and Walmart near my work on my way home next week. My local Walgreen's didn't have any a couple weeks ago, but the photo guy said he's getting some in soon.

    I recently shot and old roll (expired 1988) of Kodak Royal Gold film in my Pocket Instamatic 92. I then asked the lab I usually send my film to if they could develope it which the could (but they couldn't print or scan them). However I scanned them myself when I got the negatives back and the results was pretty grainy (and some of the negatives was completly useless).

    However it was fun to see some result at all and if you are interested in how four of the pictures from an over 20 years and probably badly stored 110-film looks like then visit: http://www.fotosidan.se/gallery/view.htm?ID=172010

    I think it is a fun format and I'll buy some new 110-film when I place my next (and first) order at Fotoimpex
