    110 Film

    Well, what do you know? Walgreen's has lots of 110 film around under its own brand. Kudos to them for keeping this format alive!

    It's strange that they say it is a product of Japan because I understand Fuji have ceased producing their 110 film. Maybe they will still make it for other companies like this. It can't be Konica as they've ceased film production and their last 110 film was actually made for them in Germany by Agfa.

    Here in the UK you can still get 110 film by Ferrania & Kodak, though it's rarely stocked in shops.

    I was under the impression that Walgreens' 110 film was made by Ferrania. I might be misremembering, though, or it might have changed since I last heard about it. When Agfa went under, Walgreens changed from Agfa to Fuji as a supplier of their house-brand 35mm film. It's possible that they didn't change their 110 film supplier, but that whoever updated the Web site (if that's where you're seeing the "product of Japan" claim) got a little over-zealous in their updates.

    I've also heard of companies that cut and re-spool film of one format for use in another type of camera. It's conceivable that Walgreens is using such an outfit to respool Fuji film.

    Surely that wouldn't work with 110, as it depends on the correct spacing of sprocket holes to cock the shutter on many 110 cameras and also to ensure that the frames fall between pre-exposed frame numbers.

    No problem at all getting 110 film in SW England.

    Umm, where do you guys get 110 film processed? In the DC area, we couldn't come up with anyone that still processed it, including sending it to Kodak.

    Walgreens - takes about two weeks. I think they send it to Kodak. About $12 for two sets of 4x6 prints.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. The last time I bought 110 film at Walgreens, it was all Kodak Gold 400. I haven't bought online, but I'm down to my last 6 rolls, so I may restock and see what happens.

    "Kodak" no longer develops or prints from 110 film. I put it in quotes since God only knows who is actually doing the processing. We had a real problem since we stocked the film but didn't have any idea who would processes it... Glad to know there are still some options.
