Lomography Orca 110 Pocket Film - DIY Film Counter

The first run of Lomography Orca 110 Pocket Film comes without Backing-Paper - so there is no Frame Counter and you have to count the frames you've taken, yourself. Time for some DIY framecounting and getting the Pocket Film Camera out of the dusty drawer! Don´t waste a frame!

An easy way out is using post-it´s to “build” your own framecounter but they aren´t very sticky so they might peel off when carried arround in a bag.

  • Post-ITs
  • Cutter Knife
  • Pen & Ruler (if you are a perfectionist)
Just peel off a tiny part everytime you make a photo!

The improved version of the Post IT framecounter works with Electrical Tape and Label Stickers (or more Electrical Tape)

  • Electrical Tape
  • Label Sticker/ Sticker of Choice
  • Cutter Knife
  • Pen & Ruler (if you are a perfectionist)
Just peel off a tiny part everytime you make a photo!

Not sure why anyone would have that device at home but I happened to have one (and honestly can´t remember how I got it) – mainly useful if you have an assistant for shooting your 110 ;)

  • manual counter
  • a cord or a pocket or a bag

If you have any questions about Orca you can read the FAQ articles or get in touch!

    I like solution number two. It's like a gunslinger putting notches on the handle of his pistol.
