 Post subject: Tiny film formats . . .
PostPosted: Fri Feb 26, 2010 11:23 pm 
If you like using film but haven't tried the smaller cameras, here are a few that I've used recently. If you just need a camera for a quick snapshot, these would do the job. Each uses a plastic cartridge holding the film and they can be reloaded with 16mm film. Finding appropriate film is tricky, but you can also cut your own film from 120 film (for example), using a homemade splitter. I do think these formats are now more suited for those who develop at home, but some stores still sell the 110 cartridges for that format, and I think most minilabs can still send 110 off for development should one choose to go that route. If anyone has questions with regard to 16mm cameras or reloading 16mm / 110 cartridges, feel free to ask. I always recommend doing thorough research before diving into an unknown territory such as these cameras.

Clockwise, starting with the camera in front . . . (the wristwatch is there for size comparison)

Minolta 16 II - (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minolta_16)
Minolta 16 MG - (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Minolta-16_MG)
Pentax Auto 110 - (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentax_Auto_110)
Minolta 110 Zoom SLR - (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minolta_110_Zoom_SLR)

Lots of info on these cameras and many others can be found here . . . http://www.subclub.org/shop/camcount.htm

How to reload a 16mm cartridge is described in the Minolta 16II manual . . . http://www.cameramanuals.org/minolta_pdf/minolta_16_ii.pdf

I'm trying to control my weird urges so I'm just going to have to ignore this! I've got $100 worth of gum bichromate printing materials in my active project area, and I've been trying to get a handle on multi-layer prints the last week or so. I have some nice ideas but the technique is not yet matching up with the theory, alas...

I would love to learn some of these printing techniques. Where does all the time go?
