  • Disassemble and Reload a 110 Film Cartridge

    thanks for the reply! the camera is a pentax auto 110 that my boyfriend's dad gave me. he kind of treated it like a useless relic of the 80s and i was like NO IT IS PERFECT.The cartridge I took apart was expired lomography 200 color. The backing paper is fine, I'm just lazy. I see what you are saying: I'd have to keep track of the exposures if I didn't reload with paper (not ideal for a lazy person such as myself). I want to reload with b/w film i can develop at home--usually I use Ilford HP5+ 400 in caffenol c. I'm pretty comfortable slitting it down in the dark. But I really like the idea of using microfilm that's already 16mm wide. I love contrast, but I'm worried about the low ISO because the shutter speed on the pentax is automatic.

    i keep losing the pentax lens cap tho it's so tiny

  • Disassemble and Reload a 110 Film Cartridge

    Thanks for the great tutorial! so far i've got to emptying the cartridge and cutting the cartridge apart. Could I reload it without the backing paper if I put a strip of black vinyl tape over the window that the numbers show through? (does the film advance fine without the paper?)
