Getting a 110 camera and don’t know where to develop the films in Malaysia? Not sure what 110 films are? Fret not. We will walk you through and read more after the jump!
Kodak introduced the 110-film format in 1972. This cartridge-based film is smaller in size than its predecessor and measures 16mm in width. 110 film is perforated on each frame to aid in advancing the film. Just like the 126 film, 110 has a paper backing that has frame numbers printed on it.
In 2012, Lomography released the The Lomography Orca B&W 100, the first film in this format to be produced since the announced discontinuation of 110 in 2009.
The Lomography Orca B&W 100 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?
The Lomography Orca B&W 100, 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.

On 14th June 2012, Lomography launched the first 110-format camera, which is the awesome tiny-mini Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras! They may be small, but they pack a 170-degree punch on 110 film! Check out the tutorial video on how load and unload the film cartridge, setting shutter speed and taking multiple exposures!
