110 Film Scan Service - An Introduction to the Format

Looking to convert 110 film negatives to digital? 110 film is a cartridge-based photographic film format introduced by Kodak in 1972. It is compact and easy to use, featuring a cartridge with 110-millimeter film enclosed in a plastic case. The film itself is 16mm wide and has sprocket holes along one edge. The format gained popularity in the 1970s and 1980s for its simplicity, making it suitable for point-and-shoot cameras. However, due to its small size, the image quality is generally lower compared to larger film formats.

Each cartridge typically holds 24 or 36 exposures. Despite its popularity in the past, the 110 film format has become obsolete, largely replaced by more advanced film formats and digital photography. The small negative size and limited resolution of 110 film make it challenging to achieve high-quality enlargements.

120 Film Scan Service - An Introduction to the Format

120 film is a medium-format photographic film introduced by Kodak in 1901. It measures 60mm in width and comes in a roll enclosed in a light-tight spool. This film format is commonly used in medium-format cameras, offering larger negatives than 35mm film for higher image quality and detail. The typical frame size is 6×9 cm, but it can vary depending on the camera used. The spool design allows for multiple exposures on the same roll. Popular for professional and artistic photography, 120 film provides photographers with a versatile and creative medium. The format has stood the test of time, maintaining its relevance in contemporary photography despite technological advancements. Commonly associated with square images, 120 film has contributed to the development of various photographic styles and remains a favourite among enthusiasts and professionals.

120 Film Developing And Scanning

The camera could fit in your pocket too and wasn’t heavy at all. When you carefully took the film out (it was a cartridge) and had it developed, you were sometimes taken aback by how poor some of the images turned out when converted to prints. That’s because relatively few models had the ability to measure light. This having been said, most images turned out fine. The concept took off and before you knew it, the term ‘Instamatic’ grew to be a general way of describing  almost any plain point or shoot camera with a simple to use film cartridge. This term would also describe such cameras irrespective of the manufacturer. Don’t hesitate, scan 120 film negatives with Supaphoto today.

126 Film Scan Service - An Introduction to the Format

Do you remember those 126 film cartridges and 126 film cassettes? But before you employ the Supaphoto team for our 126 film scanning service (we welcome the opportunity), we invite you to first understand a little about the cameras and how they totally changed the way we took photos back in the day! Scanning 110 film negatives was not even an option in those days.

Most instamatic cameras were point and shoot types. Nothing fancy, I assure you. There were  relatively few models that had fancy features such as light metres or automatic exposure. Such features would have helped greatly in improving the quality of any photos taken. 

Just imagine taking a photo with a basic instamatic in 1963! It’s getting dark and a little overcast. All you wanted to do was take a photo of your family which you did – with an instamatic. It was easy, right? You simply peered through the tiny viewfinder and pressed a little button to take your photo. 

126 film is a cartridge-based photographic film format designed for ease of use. The film comes in a plastic cartridge, simplifying the loading process for users, and it measures 35mm in width. The format gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, with cameras like the Kodak Instamatic utilising it. The cartridges typically contain a paper backing, and each roll typically captures 12, 20, or 24 exposures. However, 126 film’s image quality is limited compared to larger formats, making it more suitable for casual photography. Over time, advancements in film and digital photography led to the decline of the 126 film format, and it is now considered obsolete. Despite this, there is still nostalgia and collector interest associated with the unique square images produced by 126 film cameras.

Scanning Service For Kodak 126 Film

‘Instamatic’ was in fact Kodak’s trademark name for their easy to load into the camera ‘126’ cartridge film cameras. These were launched way back in February 1963 and the first one was called the Instamatic 50. The thing that you learn about life over time, is that not everything has to be perfect and this basic camera proved to be a great success with millions of cameras sold across the world. 

The combined convenience of the camera being small, light and portable plus the added bonus of being easy to load up (35mm cameras were a little more fiddly)  was great. Now people could safely load their home cameras with no risk at all of fogging their precious film.

By 1970, the core concept was a huge immediate success. Over  50 million Instamatic cameras were produced!

When these ‘Instamatics’ were introduced, different kinds of kodak instamatic 126 film could also be purchased – for example for colour prints or slides (otherwise known as transparencies) Eventually and generally, the 126 format was discontinued circa 1998. 

You may also be interested to know that 126 slides are an extremely common type of slide that we scan at Supaphoto. Back in the day, you might have chosen to buy 126 slide films in an easy to load cartridge. Why would you have done this?

Well, for a start, convenience of viewing I guess. Once developed, you could insert the slides into your slide projector and watch them magically appear one by one with your children by your feet looking wondrously at the screen or wall. They were produced by putting the 126 film into a normal-sized slide mount – either cardboard or plastic. 126 slides images, unless 35mm slides are easy to recognise since they are square and smaller. 

In the early days, you probably had a slide projector where you had to move the images forward one by one. It would have been quite laborious but it didn’t matter in an age where you weren’t pressed for time and distracted by social media.

While we also digitise 126 negatives, the film used in 126 slides is colour positive. Hold your slide film up to the light, and it’ll look just like whatever was photographed.

In 1972, and following the groundbreaking financial success of these 126 Instamatic cameras, the 110 cartridge was then released in 1972. You could choose between black & white and colour print cartridges again. 

So you may very well ask yourself. Why did they create a different version of the first instamatic? Well, it was thought that a better quality image could be produced using 16mm film once developed and enlarged. Again, this advancement led to another whopping 25 million cameras being sold within a few years.

Instamatic Film Scanning Service

We invite you to revive your old Instamatic negatives by transferring them with us to digital images using our film scanning service. Please bear in mind that any scanned images from instamatic film tends to be of a lower quality than larger formats of film – such as the more everyday 35mm camera. This is also because of the film due to the lower grade cameras that the film was generally used in.

This is the best way to preserve your film. Each film is thoroughly cleaned before scanning and where appropriate, infrared scanning technology is employed. This helps remove a bit more of the dust.  The digital images themselves are generally returned as a digital download or on a handy USB memory stick. 

How do we Scan Them?

Our 110,120 and 126 film scanning service will hand scan the images to high quality, high resolution, crisp and colour rich images using AI software to further reduce any digital colour noise or annoying film grain. Digital sharpening can also be applied to deliver even clearer, more defined images. We tend to create separate folders for each batch for your convenience.  Folders would typically appear in  alphabetical/numerical order which makes it easier for you to manage the images on receipt. Rest assured that everything is returned to you at the end of the scanning process including your original images unless otherwise instructed.
