Need to get your 110 gems developed quickly so your lomohome can be the envy of everyone else’s? You’ll find there will be no need to climb mountains, cross rivers or battle alligators to do so. Just head over to your usual lab.
Yes, that’s right. It’s as simple as that. Most photo labs, supermarkets and retail stores are equipped to handle 110 film in the same way they do 35mm film. The first time you show up with one might be a little of a surprise; since they probably haven’t seen one in such a long time, but all you have to do is insist a little and all should be fine and dandy. In the slim eventuality that your lab is not able to develop 110 format, they can usually suggest another lab nearby which can.
Of course, you can always take advantage of our mail-order services via the Online Lomolab or bring in your films the good old way at one of our Lomography Gallery Stores. All LomoLabs are fully equipped to develop 110 film! Read more about developing your films through the LomoLab.
Getting your 110 images developed is as easy as 1, 2, 3 but as always there’s one or two ways to do it yourself too. The first option would include the use of a Jobo 1502 reel or a Yankee Clipper II Developing Tank. Both are relatively simple to use for newbies and if you already own one then all you have to do is use it for 110 format film in the same way you do for 35mm. You knew that!
Alternatively, if you don’t own one of the above developing tanks with adjustable reel, what you can do is customise a 35mm one. 35mm reels are easy to find and relatively cheap too. Nearly all developing reels are made out of soft plastic, so it is easy to cut, saw and file. All you have to do is cut one down to 110 size (the width of 110 film is exactly 16mm or 0.63 inch). A big plus about using this method is that you need less photo chemicals due to the size of the small tank, which is pretty awesome. Give it a go and tell us how it turned out!
