The Fisheye Baby 110 – A Video Tutorial

If you’ve been checking out the new Fisheye Baby 110 cameras or have just treated yourself to one of these 110 format beauties, take a look at our tutorial videos to see exactly how to use the camera. From loading the film cartridge to taking your first photo, these videos will give you the know-how to become a Fisheye Baby expert!

Inserting Your 110 Film Cartridge

  1. If the Storage Back is installed on your Fisheye Baby 110 camera, then detach it by sliding the Back Lock at the bottom.
  2. Take your Film Transportation Back and flip over the Transparent Pressure Plate clockwise until you see the completely open film chamber.
  3. Install the 110 film cartridge by sliding it in horizontally.
  4. Flip back the Transparent Pressure Plate and lock it into place.
  5. Turn the Film Advancing Wheel until it stops; you are now reaching the first frame of film and ready to shoot.
  6. Install the Film Transportation Back by sliding it in from the back side of the camera and ensure it locks in place.

You’ve successfully loaded film into your Fisheye Baby 110!

Setting the Shutter Speed

When your camera is loaded with a fresh 110 film cartridge, you may need to set the shutter speed before shooting for best results. Here’s how to do it:

  1. You will see the N/B switch in front of the viewfinder; you may switch between N and B mode by switching left and right.
  2. Use N mode when you are shooting in sunny conditions. N stands for “Normal, 1/100 second”.
  3. Use B mode when you are shooting indoors or in low-light situations. B stands for “Bulb Shutter” and in this mode the shutter stays open as long as you press the shutter button.

Taking a photo and taking multiple exposures

Shooting with the Fisheye Baby 110 is really simple. After loading your film and adjusting the camera’s settings, simply:

  1. Press the shutter all the way down. It’s easy!
  2. Turn the advancing wheel clockwise until it stops – it’s now ready for your next shot

You can also shoot unlimited multiple exposures with your Fisheye Baby 110!

  1. To shoot a multiple exposure, first shoot the image and do not advance.
  2. Then shoot your second, third, fourth… photos until you’re finished.
  3. After that you can advance for another photo!

When You’ve Finished Your Film Cartridge

After you have shot the last frame of the roll, the advancing wheel will not stop anymore. Now you are able to take out the 110 film cartridge for developing (yes, no need to rewind!) and load a new film.

The Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras are fully working miniature versions of the Fisheye No. 2 designed especially to fit 110 film. They capture the world in full circle and enable you to produce perfect Fisheye pictures. The Fisheye Baby 110s come with a bulb mode and are able to capture multiple exposures too. Load them with Lomography Orca B&W 100 and dive into the long forgotten world of 110 photography! Head to the 110 Camera Microsite for more information.
