The 110 film format was introduced by Kodak in 1972. Have you had the chance to shoot with this kind of film? Most us already know about the 35mm and 120 film format. But what about 110? Find out more after the break.
In 1963, Kodak released a series of cameras they called Instamatic. These cameras gained popularity and were very successful, as they were easy to use and reasonably priced, too. This was a response to consumer complaints regarding loading and unloading films. The first Instamatic cameras used 126 film, but in 1972 Kodak released another film for their cameras – the 110 format.
The cartridge-based film was smaller in size than its predecessor, measuring at only 13 × 17mm per frame. It was 16mm wide, having one perforation on each frame to aid in advancing the film. Just like the 126 film, the 100 has a paper backing that has frame numbers printed on it. The Instamatic cameras had a window that would allow the user to see the frame number currently being shot.

People love competitions and Lomographers are no different. But more than a search for standout photographs, the TEN AND ONE Annual Competition celebrated the community's shared love for photography and its power to create enduring stories. This list by no means set a conclusive standard on what makes an image good or not. But nonetheless, we're proud to introduce the photographs that took the top spot in the Breaking Boundaries category.
It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.

We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
