    Processing 110 / 16mm film format

    Hi all,

    I will probably have to process 10+ rolls format 110 in a month time. This would be a one-off.
    110 film reel are pretty hard to come by, and expensive when they do. Also, I'd spend a lot of time process each film one by one if I was getting a reel.
    I am wondering whether there is not another solution to process the rolls. Could they be tray processed?

    Any ideas welcome.

    Best

    D

    See page 123 of this article for tray processing of roll film.

    Iíve had good results with this method when processing old, odd-sized roll films found exposed inside of old folding cameras.

    Processing 110 / 16mm film format

    This may not be worth it to you but I have cut down a spare Patterson reel for 110. I made an instructibles post for it. http://m.instructables.com/id/Modify...cess-110-film/

    The how to is kind of long as I was trying to be thorough. But I think it only took half an hour. If this is once off it may not be worth it.

    I've processed them in 2 different ways.

    1, with a 16mm jobo reel (pretty cheap) dremeled out slightly in the center with a sanding bit to fit a paterson column for a paterson tank, works great.

    And, in the 120 cartridge holder in the 120 lane on a fuji frontier C-41 processor, the machine also detects it as 110 size.

    I have successfully processed 16mm short lengths in a normal metal tank. My method is to tape the 16mm film, emulsion side out, onto a previously-processed "junk" roll of 120 film. I tape both ends of the 16mm film down on the larger roll of 120, leaving only a little slack; obviously this is done in total darkness but it's not difficult. Then I load the 120 film onto a stainless-steel reel and put it in the tank. I process it as if it was a roll of 120. Uses a bit more chemistry that the 16mm film needs, but it works. I think you could do a couple 16mm rolls per 120 roll.

    Now if my 16mm camera didn't have a dozen light-leaks, I'd be all set.

    EDIT - I tried this trick by taping 16mm film to 35mm film and it did not work, the film was too close together.

    The Yankee Clipper II reel adjusts to 110 size; although the quality of this product is so-so (the plastic is quite brittle compared to others), it will work if handled gently. If you can find replacement reels inexpensively, you can use multiple reels in a tray w/o the tanks in total darkness to process several at one time.

    There's a Nikor 16mm reel on ebay currently. If I were doing 110, I'd buy that one.

    I haven't tried this for my Minox film yet, but I plan to. It might work just as well for 16mm/110:

    The Jobo 135/120 reel can be modified to take 16mm film.

    I think I posted on this in the past.
