Photographers, whether amateurs or professionals, have always been fascinated in compact cameras. The smaller and more handy they are, the better and more interesting they are to shoot with! Take a look at some of the tiniest cameras that could fit in the palm of your hand in this installment of Vintage Camera Ads!
Everybody likes shooting with compact cameras, especially in a time and age such as ours, but the digital world does not have the monopoly of these sleek and handy cameras. Even if technology back then was not as advanced, camera companies managed to come up with some cool compacts that are so small they can fit nicely in the palm of your hand. And that, eventually became the selling point of the popular ones from camera makers like Minox, Olympus, and Rollei, in 35mm and 110 formats.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present, some beautiful vintage camera ads showing compact film cameras back in the days, some of the smallest of their kind:
Digital compacts still aren’t the only cameras that can fit in your palm today — remember, aside from the cameras above that you may still find in thrift shops and secondhand stores, the Lomography Online Shop also has the teeny Fisheye Baby 110 and Diana Baby 110 for you to play with! They’re certainly among the smallest cameras you can shoot with and show off today!
