    110 Discontinued at Wal Mart.

    As some of you guys that shoot any 110 film will know that one of the only places to easily get 110 is Wal Mart. I shoot it on occasion with some of the neat old cameras out there it works with. I just went into Wal Mart yesterday to pick some more up and I found that they were not going to carry it anymore. Good 'ol Kodak 110 film. I have not seen this stuff anywhere else even online. You can find Mickey mouse brands, but I would rather stick with Kodak. You can stock up as it is now only $2 per roll. I figured it was only a matter of time.

    According to the Wikipedia article on 110 film, Kodak and Fuji stopped making it. I'm not sure if that's true or not; I saw Fuji Super G in 110 format at my local place just last week.
    Those who know, shoot film

    i guess it is time to stock up
    ... and then buy a film slitter!
    the fellow who used to(?) run the
    subclub site sells film slitters on ebay ...

    i have wanted one for a long time, but figured
    i would be able to get more film as i needed to ..
    i guess there is no time like the present ..

    thanks for the heads-up!

    I think they might make the film just for WalMart(?). The only other place I have been able to find it is ebay. I have bought it from WalMart for a while so I think they are still making it.

    Ferrania still seems to produce it (or at least: they still sell fresh stock), and indeed, although it is mentioned that Fuji ceased production, there's still fresh 110 in Japan, so maybe they didn't completely cease production?

    Interesting, could you provide a link? Can't find anything in 'bay that comes close to 110 film slitter ("did you mean splitter?" No!) I've been thinking about "rolling" my own 110, but building the slitter myself has always held me back. Buying one sounds much easier...

    Bear in mind that cut-down film is only useful is some 110 cameras, ie those where the perforations are not needed to cock the shutter and/or sense the film position. A slitter isn't hard to make, either to an existing design on the web or to your own design, depending on what odds and sods you've got kicking around.

    Some of you might want to switch over to re-usable cartridges in the Minolta cameras. You should still be able to pick up a 16-qt, 16MG or 16p or the earlier cameras for cheap. You can still get negative Super-16mm b&w film, so no need to split, if you don't want to. http://www.tapesuperstore.com/72blwhne200t1.html

    I know at the drugstore lab I work at (London Drugs, as Western Canada chain) we still have a very small stock of Kodak Gold in 110 which sells once in a blue moon. I can't comment on whether or not they still make it, but at least at my store we've still got 4 fresh rolls!

    you want to search ebay for a seller " xkaes "
    he is the guy from the sub club and he sells nice film slitters.
    you might want to poke around subclub.org
    to see if your camera needs the perfs or can do without ...

    i have a pentax auto 110, and way back when, i bought a boatload
    of 110 film on ebay for cheep. i haven't looked in a while
    but i am sure you can find film there too ... there is a subculture
    (sorry for the pun ) of people who respool and i know there is a group
    for pentax users on yahoo ....
    i have been meaning to get a slitter, break open a few cartridges
    and slit some film for my 110, but i haven't gotten around to it
    too many irons in the fire so to speak ...


    good luck!
