The 110 film format was introduced by Kodak in 1972. Have you had the chance to shoot with this kind of film? Most us already know about the 35mm and 120 film format. But what about 110? Find out more after the break.
In 1963, Kodak released a series of cameras they called Instamatic. These cameras gained popularity and were very successful, as they were easy to use and reasonably priced, too. This was a response to consumer complaints regarding loading and unloading films. The first Instamatic cameras used 126 film, but in 1972 Kodak released another film for their cameras – the 110 format.
The cartridge-based film was smaller in size than its predecessor, measuring at only 13 × 17mm per frame. It was 16mm wide, having one perforation on each frame to aid in advancing the film. Just like the 126 film, the 100 has a paper backing that has frame numbers printed on it. The Instamatic cameras had a window that would allow the user to see the frame number currently being shot.

While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
