    Pentax Auto 110

    I know I'm terribly late to the party but just today I came across a lovely Auto110 still in the box, complete with flash, motordrive, and all three primes. Everything seems to work and I paid a whopping 2,000 yen (US$25) for the whole lot. Of course I would love to find some film for it and put it to work but have only managed to find a few auctions offering a few rolls here and there, mostly expired.

    Are there any good sources for 110 film now? Any further word on possibilities of production restart?

    Any info would be much appreciated!

    One problem is how are you going to get the film develop.

    You will have to break the film cartridges. Once the film is out it is processed on a spool, just like any other roll film.

    Jobo even once made 16mm reels, so in case one doesn't want to modify larger format reels, one could look for those dedicated ones.

    I could do B&W on my own but I'm pretty sure any normal lab here in Japan would process it as well. After all, I doubt they threw away all the equipment for it as soon as production stopped.

    Here in the U.S.A., I get my film from The Frugal Photographer http://www.frugalphotographer.com/ or Blue Moon http://bluemooncamera.com/index.php

    My favorite lab is Bison Photo http://www.bisonphoto.com/Home_Page.html They will also provide your photos scanned on CD. There are other labs that do 110, but don't do the CD

    I know that's a long way from Toyko, but maybe it will help.

    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    Thanks Bruce! That was exactly the kind of info I was hoping for and I promptly placed an order with TFP!

    Where do you get spools for 110 film?
