Mail Order Film Developing: 110, Minox 8x11 cassettes and more!

I've been solely shooting film for the last few months and the time had come to mail away my 110 cartridges for developing. Several years back I could get 110 film developed at Wal-Mart but that's not possible anymore. C'est la vie, I'm saved from having to step foot in Wal-Mart, there's no down side to that!

I use Blue Moon Camera for my mail order film processing. They're consummate professionals when it comes to their customer service and the quality of their prints.

Much to my surprise when I landed on their site was this advert for the MINOX spy camera film they make!

Typically I'm not the target audience for advertising, but they got me. Hook, line and sinker. I've seen MINOX cameras for sale on eBay for years and years. I never thought anything of them, since what is the point in buying a camera if you can't get film to put in it?

Well, that's all changed. I'm late to the game on this one, Blue Moon has been an authorized MINOX film manufacturer for a while now. It was news to me.

What did I do? I immediately found a MINOX C with a reasonable Buy-It-Now price on eBay, bought the battery adapter for the MINOX C and two cassettes of film from Blue Moon.

Now I must wait patiently for it all to arrive.

Here are some shots I've taken with the Pentax 110. It's a fantastic little camera and I'm super excited to see how the MINOX shots turn out!
