Bad news in the world of film is pretty common these days; we’re constantly hearing about film being discontinued or prices being jacked up. But, once in a while, there’s a glimmer of hope for those who still prefer the world of analogue to digital. And one such glimmer came recently in the form of toy camera company Lomography, which has decided to bring back 110 format film.
No 110 film has been made since 2009, but now Lomography have taken it upon themselves to breathe new life into the old format starting with the limited edition Orca B&W 100. And fortunately, for those of you who are giddy at the thought of breaking out your old pocket camera and snapping some shots, you won’t have to wait long. The cartridges, priced at $7.90 per roll of 24, start shipping in just two days on May 23rd, and are already available for pre-order at Lomography’s online store.
