Wow, that's a heck of a picture Zel... Interesting to hear 110 film is back.. C41 process colour prints I guess.. Just recently Kodak have restarted production of 35mm Ektachrome transparency film to the universal delight of a lot of photographers...

It tempts me to get my old OM10 out of retirement and restart home processing... Years back I was very into it...

Oooh...Didn't realise they'd brought that back...I know that there had been a lot of noise being made about it a couple of years ago though.

They seem to be offering the 110 film in quite a few flavours, it's ISO100 black & white film that I've just dropped in there just for the fun of it...will see what comes out!

Just really nice to get the camera out again, had been a shame seeing it just sitting in a box for the last few years after 110 really died off.

I never remember 110 in black and white ever being available back in the day Zel so that could well be something completely new!

If you want to take a look at a page which could potentially be quite expensive if you're being tempted back towards getting into photography again...

Here's Lomography's Film Shop Page...

Quite a few interesting things over there...

You're right there Zel, some of it is quite eyewateringly (or reassuringly!) expensive :shock:

^^^ LOL :lol:

It showed here for about an hour, lovely big powdery flakes.. It all turned lovely and white, just like a Christmas card. I took Gabriel out in it to attend some shopping errands and by the time we arrived home all the snow had gone and was replaced by bright sunshine!

Not that cold either really...

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed it'll be OK for Monday Dave.. We have got to be in Somerset for a very important occasion. Dad may now be late but we can't be late for his funeral...

It might be interesting marshalling at our parkrun tomorrow in the snow (if it comes). I'm told parkruns are NEVER cancelled, not even for snow!

Looks like somebody used an air rifle to make his facial features (including the one in the forehead!).

Air gun pellet is about the same size as the snowmans head :)

and funny, I have been out with the AirRifle today, rats 0 me 3......that will teach them to mess with the chickens food ! Two head shots and one Backside on, not the most dignified way to go even for a rat :)

Lomography film?
Wierd, and expensive . . .
The 35mm 135-36 is pre-exposed, with lightning flashes!?
The 16mm x 30.5m cine film (you won't go far with 30.5m) is "without perforations" - that'll be fun to use.
Super 8mm cine film ditto.
What???? April 1 come early?

There is a technique to pre-flash film to give an apparent increase in sensitivity with the side effect of some tonal degradation.

I recently discovered some unexposed rolls of Agfa film that must have been around since 1978 :)
