Tiny Cameras
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:11:53 AM »
I was once the proud owner of a Pentax Auto 110 and a Little camera (I think that it was a Minolta) that used special "100 stle" cartridges that used 16mm film. Both cameras gave good results for their day and I often wish that someone would bring out a digital SLR system that had the same footprint as the Pentax 110.

Minolta were actually first with a 110 film SLR back in 1976 which had a fixed zoom lens.

A former colleague of mine had the Minolta with the fixed lens.
I believe the MK 2(as it were) had interchangeable lenses like the Pentax.
Of course they were rather limited by the tiny negatives of the 110 format,so couldn`t be printed large.
