As you might have noticed, we’ve gone a little film crazy over the past week at Lomography. Not only have we been doing a little Photo Lab research, we’ve been finding out All About 35mm and looking at some of the best photographers who shoot our beloved medium format. You may have also seen that we have also begun to learn a little more About 110 Film and Lomographers who shoot 110. This led us to the discovery that it was exactly 40 years ago when 110 was introduced to the world – To celebrate this illustrious birthday, join us in checking out this wonderful selection of 110 ads from the inventors of 110, Kodak.

    110 film (13x17mm) as far as I know is equivalent to the digital Micro 4/3rds sensor size! I was never a fan of 110 though as the quality is fairly rubbish - although that didn't stop me from wanting a Penax Auto 110.

    I get the feeling you guys are setting this up for an eventual unveiling of a 110 film camera :-). Just a hunch.

    @Iborba: it would be a great coup de théatre if they released a new instant camera instead! But no, I too believe it's going to be a new 110. Not that I'll complain, anyway :-)

    Hmm if there's going to be a new 110 camera, that also means new film..................110 hasn't been in production by anyone for years now. Although, I'm sure it wouldn't be terribly difficult to take 16mm filmstock and alter the perforations to work in 110 cartridges. Who knows what LSI has up their sleeves!
