110: What is the Lomography Orca B&W 100?

The Lomography Orca B&W 100 is just the first in a new range of 110 films set to be released this year. The first 5000 pieces of this new, splendidly small film are already available for pre-order at the Lomography Online Shop. But before you rush to get your hands on some because it will surely run out quick, just give us a quick minute to tell you what it’s all about.

The Lomography Orca B&W 100 110 format film might be small in size, but don’t let that fool you – it is rather one of the great things about it! 110 film makes for extra portable, pocket-friendly fun. And thanks to its high quality, it can still yield some great depth of field and excellent results even at short focal length – all this with some very simple focusing. Isn’t that something for such a fun sized companion?

We must also mention that the first edition of Lomography Orca, isn’t your average B&W 110 film. This limited, experimental run comes with no back-paper and this means that each frame will need to be counted manually as the spool does not stop when the film is done. But truth is we were so excited about our new addition to the Lomography Film line-up, that we couldn’t wait any longer to release it! Yes, that’s how badly we wanted to share our latest analogue secret with you!

The Orca is a B&W film which requires classic B&W processing (not C-41). Whilst being able to produce some of the finest 110 black and white shots you’ve ever seen, the first run of Orca may include a light feature whereby the last four frames might catch some light subsequently creating unexpected bursts and original results.
