    How do you open a 110 film cassette?

    Okay, so I got my 16mm reel.

    Someone sent me some Sakuracolor SR-100 that is C-41 process in a 110 film. I would like to open the thing in my dark bag so I can load it on the reel.

    Is there any kind of pictorial guide or anything?

    edit: cartridge is in two pieces now, film safely loaded though.

    From http://www.subclub.org/darkroom/roll110.htm

    To reload the cassette, you first have to take the cassette apart. This is not difficult if the room lights are on, but if you have exposed film in the cassette that you want to develop, you'll need to try to deconstruct the cassette in a dim light -- not an easy task. So, if it's your first cassette, just kiss the film inside goodbye. Turn those lights up, so you don't lose a finger. Carefully split the cassette along the seams with an X-acto knife. You don't need much pressure on the glued seams, but the seams are hard to find. If you are looking at the back of the cassette, one seam runs along the top UNDER the lip that runs along the top. The seams also run right down the middle of the tabs on each end of the cassette. On the bottom, the seams run around the front edges of each film spool. You may end up ruining your first cassette, but everything gets better with time! When you get it appart, you'll see that the film is attached to a spool in the take-up spool and is pulled out of the supply spool.

    Enjoy!

    I twist carefully and swear if it doesn't separate cleanly then. I don't use a knife.
