Lomography is a company who is keeping the analog lifestyle alive. Today they announced that they are bringing back 110 film starting with a limited run of 5000 units. Lomography is calling their first 110 film Orca and it will be ISO 100 black and white film.
The manufacturing of 110 film was halted completely in 2009 and all of the people who pretended to be 007 with their small cameras had to retire them for good. These cameras are already available out there and and are usually close to pocket size since the 110 cartridge is so small. A good example is the Pentax Auto 110 SLR which can be seen here is just adorable and if you don’t smile then you don’t like anything fluffy.
This is the kind of film you put into a camera, keep the camera with you and use the frames on memories that will take a few months to finish. In the end when you finish the roll you will smile and remember the images you took on the first frames awhile back. It usually takes me a 2-3 months to go through my 35mm rolls and its such a pleasant surprise when you see the images.
The film with 24 frames will run you $7.90 and will be available on their site. The film is currently a pre-order but is expected to ship on May 23rd.
