Lomography has announced a new 110 format black-and-white film called Orca BW 100. With a sensitivity of ISO 100/21°, the Orca BW 100 is Lomography’s very first 110 film and, as the company puts it “only the peak of a 110 film iceberg that is waiting to be released.” The first production run of the Orca B&W 100, consisting of just 5000 cartridges, is exclusively available for pre-order from the Lomography Online Shop at €6.90 per roll. Pre-ordered films are expected to ship from 25th May. Note that this first Orca edition has a missing back-paper; this means is that each frame will need to be counted manually because the spool does not stop when the film is done. Also, the last 4 photos on each 24 frame roll might have some light leaks.

ORCA B&W - THE RETURN OF 110 FILM

THE COMEBACK OF THE YEAR
Lomography are happy to announce the comeback of 110 film! The all new Black & White film Orca is Lomography’s very first 110 film and only the peak of a 110 film iceberg that is waiting to be released.

BACK IN BLACK & WHITE
The first production run of 5000 Orca films has a special unpredictable feature – a missing back paper that allows the last four pictures to catch light leaks. If you belong to the species of brave-hearted analogue photographers – give the Orca a try! Besides this the Orca will please your pocket cameras with 100 ISO and crispy black & white tones.

On the one hand it's the typical Lomo half-arsed crap that makes a feature out of being rubbish, i.e. "The first production run of 5000 Orca films has a special unpredictable feature – a missing back paper that allows the last four pictures to catch light leaks. "

Yes. It's a feature, not a screw-up.... Honest guv would we lie to you?

On the other hand, it means I can give my Pentax Auto 110 some use...
