If someone were to reintroduce 110 film for $3 per roll, I would stockpile it like crazy...but not 6 to 7 bucks. I'd much rather just buy a bulk roll from them.

    The film will be properly perforated.
    But without backing paper.

    By the way, it would be best to discuss all this on the Adox forum here, so Mirco will be more aware of this discussion.

    My translator threw up this: "Pocket Kasettenfilme films are loaded with 16mm film.", which seems to suggest that the cassettes may be loaded not with true 110 film but with 16mm. If that's the case, it wouldn't work in all/many 110 cameras. The concept of no backing paper is interesting, though, as I occasionally cut down b/w film and load it into cassettes as do many. It set me thinking that perhaps the backing paper is unnecessary if the back of the cartridge is made light-tight and without the thickness of the paper considerably more exposures of film could be wound on. You'd just need either a good memory or a piece of paper to keep count of the number of exposures used. Perhaps something would be needed in the film window to take up the space vacated by the paper and ensure that the film plane wasn't able to vary excessively (well, any more than 110 is said to anyway!)

    I'm ready. Canon 110ED F2 lens with hot shoe, and Rollie A110 F2.8. And I was just going to donate them to Salvation Army.

    I think it best if one of the moderators moves it.

    I think they will be releasing Adox Pan 400 (APX 400) in 110 also

    The key word in my post was bulk, not perforated. I am sure the new product will be properly perforated.

    110 Film

    Hello all,

    yes the film will be properly perforated otherwise it makes little sense to sell it as a 110 film.
    All of the production procedures are now made manually or semi automated. So the costs aren´t exactly generated in the "spooling" but rather is starts with cutting down 35mm to 32 (wasting 3 mm), perforating it semi manually, slitting it, chopping it, rolling it, rebuilding the casettes, welding it manually, packing it, apllying the stickers........

    Yes we will offer different film types.
    In the beginning: color 200 ASA and one b/w.

    Backing paper: still an open issue. Things look right now more as if we will be having backing paper again.

    Any remaining questions: feel free to ask.

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    PS sorry for the short answer- too many projects, too little time.

    Thanks, Mirko.

    Any chance of making a bulk roll version available, and/or selling empty cassettes?
