Do the Pentax 110 cameras count as SLR's? Even if they don't they need film, and I've just found a source;

Yes, if they are SLRs!

An SLR is a camera with a Single lens and an optical viewfinder, ie the viewfinder uses the same lens as the camera

Single Lens Reflex

One lens + one mirror = one SLR

The Pentax 110 cameras are SLRs.

No. Just happened to stumble across it. I have small stock of out-dated film and a great little (non-Pentax) 110 camera and was unhappy that I was not going to be able to use it much longer.

what speed do you rate it at in the Auto110 Dave?

Its been a while since I shot much film, but 200ISO and its colour negative film so I'm guessing it's better to overexpose by one stop than underexpose?

There is no choice about film speed with a 110 camera. It's either ISO 100 or ISO 400, as decided by the cartridge itself. There are ways round to fool the system, but it's still one of those two speeds.

Overexposing colour negative film by one stop is not a problem.

that's what I'm talking about John, all modern carts are rated at 100, so the choice is whether you file the tab off the end to get 400 or not.

You'll lose shadow detail if you do.

thanks John, my wording was unclear, let me try again:

The film is rated at 200ISO. The camera is calibrated for 100 or 400 and has no exposure compensation.

given that it is colour negative film, am I correct in assuming that it will perform better overexposed by one stop by setting the camera to 100, than it will under exposed by one stop by setting the camera to 400?

Yes that's right, but one stop either way is still no big deal, so you'd get away with either.
Best regards, John
