Not a direct comparison because as stated above the 110 and the 126 cassetes could not keep the film flat.

This can be verified simply by looking at the image quality obtained by Minox with their "16 mm"  (8x11mm) cameras.  Those do have a pressure plate. Minox could not get that quality/resolution  from their 110 versions. (the Minox 110S was a high end camera costing more than some 35mm SLRs , with a 2.8 Carl Zeiss lens . 4 sec to 1000/th  shutter speed. It was made by Balda for Minox)   Minox 16mm film was just standard 35mm film cut to size at the Minox factory... Popular (or Modern) Photography did an article on the potential of 110 as size by mounting the film on a camera with a pressure plate. The results were better than those obtained from the best of the 110 cameras available then (possibly the Pentax and Minolta 110 SLRs were used as a comparison...) BTW, the earlier versions of the Minox had a concave pressure plate and so did the enlarger made for them.
