The Anthony Wayne Bridge

Anthony Wayne Bridge
[Taken 24 Feb 2011 | ISO 400 | 50mm | Kodak 110 film]

A.K.A. The “High-Level Bridge,” downtown Toledo. Another shot from my Pentax Auto 110.

While researching this camera online, I’ve learned something important: since the manufacture of 110 film cartridges was never standardized, film manufacturers could choose whether or not to remove a notch on the cartridge that some cameras (including this one) used to identify film speed. Since the camera misreads the 400 speed that I use, and exposes it like 100 speed, all my photos are slightly overexposed.

When I test my wide-angle lens, I plan to manually remove the notch on the film cartridge and see if that makes a difference in the exposure.
