  • “How do I set 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:
  • 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.
  • Use N mode when you are shooting in sunny conditions. N stands for "Normal, 1/100 second".
  • 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.
 
  • “What does the Storage Back do?”
  • With the Fisheye Baby 110 Storage Back, you can already get an idea of what your photos will look like before you even insert a film!
  • If your Fisheye Baby 110 has the Film Transportation Back attached, then first slide the Back Lock to release it, remove the Film Transportation Back and install the Modelling Back by sliding it in from the back side of the camera. Make sure it is properly locked in place.

  • “I’ve reached the end of my film roll. What do I do now?”
  • 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 and load a new film.
 
  • “Does the size of 110 film affect its quality?”
  • Generally, this doesn’t just depend on the film, but also on the camera you use, laboratory conditions and processing. Having said that, film production has evolved a lot since the launch of the original 110 Pocket films and new 110 films such as the Lomography Orca, use equally fine film materials as other larger format films. Therefore, you shouldn’t be able to notice any difference in quality at all.
  • “Where can I develop 110 film?”
  • Most photo labs, supermarkets and retail stores are equipped to handle 110 film in the same way they do 35mm film. The first time you show up with one might be a little of a surprise; since they probably haven’t seen one in such a long time, but all you have to do is insist a little and all should be fine and dandy. In the slim eventuality that your lab is not able to develop 110 format, they can usually suggest another lab nearby which can. Find 110 PhotoLabs Near You
 
  • “How do I Scan 110 film?”
  • The easiest way to scan 110 Film a pair of gloves and the 35 mm DigitaLIZA! It’s really convenient to load 110 Film into the 35mm Digitaliza Scanning Mask. All you need to do after every scan is to move the film to the next frames. The great thing is that no cutting is necessary - just remember to wear gloves since there is not much free space on the side!If you have loads to scan, then scan two strips at once! Choose the scanning area manually in your scanning program for every frame to get the best result! It’s obviously also possible to scan without a scanning mask, but the DigitaLIZA makes the whole process a whole lot easier!
