    Just curious to see if anyone else has one of these.

    I dusted off my Pentax 110, which I bought on a whim years back. Still working fine. Neat little camera. I have a host of extras: 20-40 mm f2.8 zoom, 18 mm f2.8 wide angle and a 50 mm f2.8 tele. Also have the 110 winder and the AF130 flash.

    Next to my Nikon F4e, it's the funniest in contrasts. Functionally though the little guy is so tiny, I can carry it around pretty much anywhere in very unsuspecting terms!

    So any other users here?

    can you even get film for it these days? i've looked at them in the used camera stores and have always marveled at them.

    I think Kodak makes gold 400 in 110.

    Interesting site on miniature cameras: www.submin.com

    gr82bart,

    I have one of these cameras as well, bought it used a year ago, but never put any film through. What kind of results do you get with yours?

    First off Kodak still makes Kodak Gold Ultra 400 in 110 format in 12 and 24 frames. I haven't used my camera in years, but, back then several film manufacturers made 110 film. Photos came out pretty good considering the small area. I mostly have 4x6 prints which are OK. I'll be trying out my old 110 camera this weekend and I'll post some results.

    David,

    Actually, that page contains out of date information. Kodak is the only manufacturer that makes 110 film. And they only make Kodak Gold ISO 400 speed.

    Thanks. How about the East European manufacturers? Anything on www.fotoimpex.de? If there's a 110 B&W film to be had, I'd bet that's where you would find it.

    I remember long ago shooting Verichrome Pan in 110, processing it on a stainless steel reel, and enlarging it onto Velox with this dreadful plastic enlarger I got when I was about 10 years old. I may still have a roll or two of those old negs in the the files.

    I have 2 kinds of minis I take with me everywhere; The Rollei 16 that is a bit larger, has a focusing Zeiss Tessar T* lens and I have to roll my own and there are only a few kinds of film that will work in it (Single Perf 16mm) It makes fantastic 3 1/5 x 5 prints and even a 5x7 once in a while. It has no battery and auto-exposure. The other is one of my 5 Minolta 16 II cameras. The Rokkor lens is very sharp but fixed focus. It will take any 16mm film - roll you own. If you stop down for DOF, you get some diffraction, else you must be nearly 10feet away. It makes nice 3 1/2 x 5 as well. Even better with tech pan and there is color film that will work - I can slit any 35mm film - the camera doesn't use the perfs. These little cameras are great for little memory savers and small art like prints. As long as that is your expectations, you won't be dissatisfied. Most prints will fall apart at a 5x7 and controls are primitive. I have learned to make my minis work well and enjoy them very much - you know -- when I can't take a real camera .... with sheets of film.

    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...
