With the recent release of Lomography’s first ever black and white 110 film, we know you must be itching to try them out with some notable 110 cameras. We come to your rescue with a mini-series which features some of these classic compact shooters!
Brand: Kodak Pocket Instamatic Series (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60)
Years: 1972 – 1976
Why it’s iconic: Kodak invented the 110 format in 1972 and their Pocket Instamatic series was their response to the popular Japanese and German 16mm cameras of the 1960’s, destroying the 16mm market with the 110 release.
The range extended through evolving designs, features, and add-on accessories. The Pocket Instamatic 10 was the cheapest of the lot with its 25mm (f11.0), (1/1) fixed-focus lens, mechanical shutter with speed of 1/90, basic flash-cube compatibility, and no exposure control, while the Pocket Instamatic 50 was often described as frighteningly sharp with its 26mm (f2.7-17.0), (4/3) scale-focusing lens and automatic exposure control.
