    Innit diddy?

    18mm, 24mm and 50mm lenses and a Pentax Auto 110. I picked the lot up on eBay for £50. Those nice people at Lomo have started manufacturing 110 film again and this is a cheap way to have a bit of fun - I can always sell it on again if I don't like it. Bearing in mind the small sensor size of some digital cameras (frame size here is 17x13mm - a fraction smaller than micro 4/3) I think this qualifies to be here, don't you? :cool:

    I have some film on order... I'll let you see the results!

    I had a set of those lenses that I played with on my 43 camera for awhile.....they are so tiny (and fun!). Can't wait to see your shots.

    Super cool, Bill! It will be cool to see your shots.

    110 is a cartridge, right?

    certainly is.
    people have been threatening to manufacture them again for a while

    Watch the price of these baby Pentaxi rocket as the Lomo marketeers swing into action ...

    I have the 18 and the 24mm. Used them with a home made adapter on m43. Just TOO small, for comfortable use for me. Also, was reasonable IQ for close use but not landscape.

    Fuji UK, apparently... and Snappy Snaps - we shall see! :smile:

    Luke - I LOVE that photo - it has that slightly insane air that we all acquire when we go just a bit OTT with our hobbies... bear in mind I am 6'3", solidly built and with big hands - this thing looks like it belongs on a key ring in my hands...!
