I'm looking for the exact dimensions of the 110 film cartridge. I'll take any sort of information including the ISO whitepaper for it (which I would love to read), or if someone already has it in AutoCAD that would save me all the trouble.

Ah my knowledge of the ridiculous and obscure may come in handy! You want ISO 13450 (1996), which has all the juicy details on 110 film (size/shape of the cartridge, exposure area, speeds, etc.).

Sadly I'm not sure where you can get a copy without forking over the Swiss Francs to the ISO folks - Perhaps someone else has a hook-up though.


Perhaps also helpful - I think 110 is just a smaller 126 cartridge (it's been a while since I shot anything that wasn't 35mm or sheets/plates - someone correct me if I'm wrong).
If you can turn up a CAD document for a 126 cartridge you can shrink it 'till it fits...

    \$\begingroup\$ It is a smaller version of the 126. I cant believe I didnt know there was 126 film, Im a bit upset with myself for that! Although its smaller by 35% in height and 54% smaller in the width that doesnt tell me what the dimensions of the case are. Im just trying to avoid taking one of the rolls I have, destroying it and taking calipers to it. Thanks for the comment :) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 11, 2010 at 16:28

    \$\begingroup\$ I wouldn't be above calipers -- I'd be interested in trying to print it on a Makerbot myself. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ As far as destroying a capsule, why not simply ask for a bunch of already developed capsules? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 18, 2011 at 13:59

in case anyone stumbles across this in the future looking for approximate measurements, the cartridge is about 3.2in from end to end, the larger spool is about 1.1in, the narrow bridge part is 0.35 in wide and the whole thing is around 0.8in tall
