    Demekin 110 Camera

    Came across this little beauty: http://www.superheadz.com/demekin/

    Very kewl. Now I need to get one. Anyone ever order from these guys? Though I need someone who reads Japanese to tell me how much this thing costs.

    BTW My local Wal-Mart had a stock of 20 - yes twenty - rolls of Kodak 110 film the other day.

    Art, remember to ALWAYS buy the film before you buy the camera. Else, it's Hay, Where can I get some obsolete (and obviously out-dated) film for this obsolete camera???

    I hope this helps you.

    Bought all 16 rolls at the local Wal-Mart last Saturday. And my local Walgreens has 14 rolls on the shelf when I was there last night.

    Don't rain on my parade!

    Wal-Mart and Walgreen's will develop it. Well, they'll send it out for development. $14 for development and two sets of 5x7 prints.

    Batches of Kodak 400 (best before ??/2008) and Fujicolor 200 (??/2009) still show up regularly on *bay, and Ferrania 110 film (200 iso) is -as far as I know- still in production. Stashing up on 110 film shouldn't be a problem.

    Probably not interesting for you, but in the Netherlands, there's a chain of stores where I can drop off anything from 110 to 220. In my region, this is sent to a Fuji center. Sure enough, 110, 120 and 220 always takes them a bit longer (that's an understatement...) to process than 35mm. That always makes me wonder about what happens when they receive my non-35mm film. "Hm, what the beep is this?" "Oh I dunno, just put it aside until Friday, when our oldest employee is back. He'll probably know what to do with it..."

    My local Walgreens (a US drug store chain) has store-brand 110 film (made by Fuji). US mail-order photo outfits have it, too; I think B&H does, for instance (although I'm too lazy to check right now). I'm pretty sure that only color negative 110 film is being made, though. I've heard of people re-spooling B&W and slide film, but it sounds like a bit of a pain, and the frame spacing is likely to be weird with most cameras, since "real" 110 film has one registration mark for each frame, and those are hard to replicate.

    That always makes me wonder about what happens when they receive my non-35mm film. "Hm, what the beep is this?" "Oh I dunno, just put it aside until Friday, when our oldest employee is back. He'll probably know what to do with it..."
    More likely they need to wait to get enough of it to make a run worthwhile. They aren't doing the processing in single-roll tanks like I do, or even run it through minilab machines one roll at a time; they've got to splice the rolls together with others of like format, so they need a certain number of rolls to fill their machine.

    Art,

    Looks cool but nothing special, apart from the camera's appearance. If the price under the camera is in YEN, then 2,940.00 JPY = 29.7714 USD.

    Close your eyes to see. This will take a while.
