Lomography has been at the forefront of the analogue revolution for decades. Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experiemental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

110 is Back

I've used a couple of rolls of Orca 110 recently. Once with a very primitive Dolphin Sirius waterproof camera to test the concept and then, again with a newly acquired Minolta Autopak 450E, probably one of the best 110 compacts ever made.
I develop my own black and white film and so had the fun of running this through the processing tank and seeing the tiny negatives emerge at the end of the process. If you want to do this yourself, be warned, processing tanks and spirals for 110 are difficult to find. I managed to track down and old West German movie developing tank (yes, *West* German). It takes 16mm which is exactly the size of 110 film.
The pictures from the fixed focus, two exposure levels, Dolphin Sirius were surprisingly good: the main factor in moving onto the Minolta 450E. The film captured the scenes with nice crisp contrast and fairly fine grain, considering the images are so small.
Moving onto the Minolta, the quality really began to show. Having the ability to actually focus the lens (zone focussing) really shows what these small negatives can capture. I found it a really nice format for street photography but it is also more than capable in the camera's close-up and macro settings as seen in the capture of the scrabble board.
So I am looking forward to a happy relationship with Lomography Orca 110 film and my Minolta Autopak 450E, a good choice for street photography, parties and other occasions when I need a pocket-sized film camera.

Far better than expected!

Ran a roll of this through a Pentax Auto 110 as a test film, not expecting too much from the tiny negatives, and was pleasantly surprised by the results.

Yes, there's grain. But the contrast and range of tones available from the Orca stop it from being too intrusive most of the time. Really hard to comment on latitude because the Pentax just does what it thinks is right for exposure - no questions or opinions from the user allowed. But it seemed to cope well enough with fairly contrasty late afternoon sunshine on everything from landscapes to pretty extreme close-ups.

Exposed at 100ISO and developed in Rodinal 1+25 for 6 minutes, 20 deg C, agitation 10 seconds then 4 inversions at the start of each minute. Scanned on Epson V600 at 6400DPI to get some sort of decent file size out of the tiny negatives.

Film like this might actually keep 110 shooting alive and will definitely be stocking up on this once it's back in stock!

Brilliant 110 BW film

Was nice to be able to use 110, and this was my first time using a 110 bw film. I didnt have my camera set right so the images were underexposed, but even so, the images were very clear with good levels on contrast. Also the negatives dried very flat which made very for very easy scanning.

Pushing Orca at ISO 400

As a follow up to my previous review, I've been investigating pushing Orca to shoot at higher ISO settings. On my Pentax 110 Auto I'm limited to ISO 100 or 400, so I chopped the speed indicator on the cartridge in half (auto sets to ISO 400) and shot some frames to see what happened. I couldn't adjust the exposure, so just took pictures as normal. I took an educated guess at 10 minutes and 45 seconds in Infosol 3 (20C) to take account of the underexposure and crossed my fingers. The results were good - contrast and grain up as would be expected, but very acceptable results. See sample image, which has been scanned and inverted, but is otherwise untouched. I think that I ran the developer for a little too long - next time maybe 10 minutes 15 seconds. It's easy to do and certainly extends what you can do with Orca.
