Minolta 110 dilemma

Having recently purchased a Minolta 110 zoom MK1(5 ) i decided to get some film.The problem is the film is 200ASA,and the camera takes 100 or 400ASA film only.I can use the 200ASA but i will have to set the exposure compensation (+or- up to two stops) accordingly.Any ideas which way,and by how much
Thanks.

Re: Minolta 110 dilemma

I think if you set the camera on 100 asa, you will have to dial in 1 stop under exposure and set on 400 asa, one stop over.

If the film is a long time out of date, flip a coin!

Ahh.Dabhand.Forgot to mention that there doesn't appear to be any way of setting the film speed!.The film i've ordered is only a few months out of date so that shoudn't be a problem.

Re: Minolta 110 dilemma

I thought these cameras set the film speed automatically. Didn't you say you had exposure compensation on the camera?

You used to be able to get self-adhesive stips that you put on self-load films to set the film speed. Maybe you could get hold of some of these, and then you would not have to make any compensation.

Re: Minolta 110 dilemma

From memory of shooting some 100 ASA film at 200 once by mistake, I think you can tell the devoping lab of your difference & they can compensate. Best to ask first

Re: Minolta 110 dilemma

Dave is right here. I'm not sure if your average mini lab will be able to do this, but 'proper' labs will. Basically, I think that if you have used a higher speed film than the setting on the camera, that is overexposed, they will reduce the development time, and vice versa.

When I used to develop films, you could 'push' low speed film to perform at higher film speeds, but it usually increased contrast and reduced lattitude. when pushed a lot, you used to get very grainy results that sometimes looked really good, depending on the subject.

The old adage of minus one third of a stop for transparencies and plus one stop for print film might be applicable. In this case, it would be better to use the 100 asa setting on the camera.

Re: Minolta 110 dilemma

I use 200 ISO film in my Pentax auto 110. The camera accepts either 100 or 400 ISO so it overexposes by 1 stop, print film can easily handle this.
