Those red dots are from light leaks through the backing paper of the film. Apparently the backing paper that Lomo has used is a little leaky/perforated. I have not noticed this on my Tiger 200 film, so it seems that it is a QC issue.
But I have with Orca! Mine had crazy backing paper mico-perferations. It can make for an interesting albeit unintentional effect.
This was taken with Orca and my Rollei A110. You again can see how sharp the lens is:

More with the Rollei and Orca film. I like this film a lot, but it seems very hard to get:

Why does Lomo make such a fuss of their 110 "Peacock" film going green etc. when cross-processed? Doesn't all slide film go a funny colour or two when cross-processed?

Is there anyone that processes and mounts 110 slide film? How easy is it to get slide viewers that can handle 110 slides?

How does it compare to Tiger 200 film?


While I'm here, is it usual for the wind-on lever of Minolta 110 zoom slr mk2s to wind-on even if a photo has not been taken first?

Any help would be much appreciated.


Edit: added the following bit after seeing Huss's post :

Thanks for those pics Huss. Did you process and print them yourself? The exposure seems right on for each photo. Have you got any opinion on whether it's similar to any 35mm film? Do you get those perforations in every Orca film, and have you noticed if they appear from a particular frame number?

Here are some links to shops/sellers I've bought Lomo 110 Tiger 200 film from, in case Lomo start stocking/sending it out again:

1) Analogue Wonderland: https://analoguewonderland.co.uk/collections/110-film


2) Bristol Cameras: https://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/adv...10+camera+film

You can't email Bristol Cameras, you have to phone them to ask questions.


3) WEX photo: https://www.wexphotovideo.com/film/#..._category_pg=1

WEX have been very helpful over the short time I've been emailing them, and 'Angela' has passed on my info about Lomo having no firm plans to restock 110 Tiger 200 film, to another dept. who will decide whether to contact Lomo and ask for more film etc.


4) M.S.Hobbies Ltd.: https://www.wexphotovideo.com/film/#..._category_pg=1


M.S.Hobbies handle Minox cameras and film as well. It has proved a little difficult getting Postage prices and so on from them. The website does seem to have improved since the last email I sent them.

I've just added a film to 'my cart' to see what would happen about indications of postage etc. The film would cost 8.75 according to the listing, this price is shown as 'sub total' in 'my cart', there is 11.50 below it with no indication what it's for and the 'Total amount' is 19.75 inc. tax. This is for one film.

HUH!? It can't be 11.50 tax as no-one else is charging that, and I'd be surprised if it was 11.50 postage. I won't go any further with it by going through the motions of paying for it (without the final 'confirm and pay'), in case something goes wrong.

Until I get clarification about this I won't be buying anything from them.


Edit: I forgot to include this ebay seller:

5) apdigi. Based in Hong Kong but it took less than a week for the box of "3x Lomo 110 Tiger 200" to arrive. The box cost 19.60, with free postage although I paid 1.50 extra for postage that was listed as being about a week quicker, but I could still be waiting in the first week of August.

Edit 2: Ordered another "3x box of tiger 200" last Thursday (12/7/18) and received it yesterday morning (17/7/18)! That's quick.

Has anyone got any idea why Lomography use bigger boxes for their single 110 films than other companies do?

I know my minolta zoom mk2 uses a little metal cog thing to turn the take up spool that is inside the film cassette, but I've read that it can't use film that doesn't have the sprockets.

Is this true and if so why?

Any help would be appreciated.

Is it true? No....

All 110 cartridges have a cogged gear on the leading reel to pull the film across from the feed side to the side where exposed frames are stored. There's no such thing as a 110 cartridge without a geared sprocket.

Perhaps you're thinking about the single sprocket holes aligned to the corner of each frame? The spec for the 110 film system used a feeler to fall into this hole to signal the advance mechanism to stop advancing and to cock the shutter. Without this hole, most cameras will simply wind on until the end of the film. Also, if you try to use 16 mm movie film (if you can refill a 110 cartridge, which was intended to be single-use), then the many sprocket holes will stop the advance every 3/10 in., which will overlap photos.

Thanks for the info skucera.

I did begin to suspect that the film sprockets would 'probably' have something to do with counting the frames not long after posting, but as I wanted to be sure I left the question up.

I think I've reads that some 110 cameras can work without the film sprockets, is this true and if so how?

Just run the first roll of 'Tudor 200' (exp 2006) through my slr mk2.

I tried to remember to do every shot twice, the first being at '0' exposure comp, (which is actually +1 stop 'cos of the film speed) and the second at -1 (which will be 'correct' when I'm using my fresh lomo 200), just to see what happens.

I'm sure a few pics will show camera shake partly 'cos the display was at "between 1/60 and 1/4" (according to the manual) sometimes though it was closer to 1/60, and partly 'cos I think I need new batteries and the display wasn't lighting up properly so I started to wind on thinking that was the problem.

I did remember to zoom in, focus and zoom out again though just to be on the safe side.

The wind-on lever being on the bottom of my camera hasn't turned out to be quite so awkward as I thought it would, especially when doing vertical shots.

Sean, post your pics in a thread somewhere, or link to them so we can check them out. Remember, some of us are deeply geeky 110 enthusiasts who have not yet owned a Minolta 110 Zoom SLR Mk. 2.

I'll be taking my first film to my local max speilmann tomorrow, well later today actually (27/7/18) and apparently it will be 2-3 weeks before I get them back.

IF there's 1 or 2 that ain't totally, utterly and completely embarrassingly bad I may post some.

I could shove them here or start a 110 photo thread for everyone's 110 photos.

Just a little note about WEX photo, they have a weird system whereby their online shop says "Awaiting stock" even if they have stock of film etc. in one or more shops.

This is clearly so for their "3x Lomo 110 tiger 200" film. At present they have it listed as "Awaiting stock" even though they have it in stock in their London, Edinburgh and Bristol branches. This is because they supply on-line orders via their Norwich branch and they have none in that branch.

If you get to their listing of Lomo films and click on the tiger 200 listing, you'll get to the individual item details with "check stock near you", click on that and you'll see a list of branches they have stock in along with that branch's phone number. You then have to ring them directly.
