    110 film

    A friend of mine just gave me his old Minolta Weathermatic A. I repaired the damage caused by a battery leak and wouldn't mind giving it a go.
    Can I purchase 110 film anymore? More importantly,does anyone still develop it?

    Thanks

    Rero Photographic in the UK have some but you may want to find some closer to home due to postage costs.

    Our local branch of Boots the Chemist have it, but that won't be a big help in Canada.

    Here in the States, the big discount stores still have some on the shelves. They will also process & scan in house.

    fuji still makes asa 200 110 film ...

    last time i was at walmart, they had
    loads of it on their shelves.
    if you take the film to any pharmacy, they should be
    able to process it for you.
    i take my film to sams club / walmart
    and fuji processes it ...
    over the last year they changed it from a 3 day service
    to a 2 week service, because of low demand ... so
    i can't say how much time will go by until THEY send it out
    ( they send things like b+w and slide film to dwaynes in kansas )

    have fun!

    I've seen Kodak Max in 110 on the shelves of my photo stores.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Hi Mike,

    I have a Weathermatic (actually quite a few 110s) and I went as far as going swimming to test mine underwater back last September. Trouble is, I haven't finished the film yet. I'll be interested to hear how you get on.
    110 film is everywhere here in the UK - no problem getting it at all. As I and probably others have mentioned on APUG before, you can have fun cutting down 35mm B/W film and loading it into 110 cartridges, thereby depriving the processing places of your money and making things a little more interesting for you!

    Best wishes,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    My friend Michel is sending me some 110 from "upper Canada" and my local Sobey's grocery store can process it.I'll scan a few pics. when it's developed.

    Well technically I'm in Lower Canada, as it was once called before the act of Union (Lower being Québec; Upper being Ontario. I wonder why...)
