Brand: Rollei A110
Year: 1974

Why it’s iconic: It was Rollei’s response to 110’s popularity in the ‘70s, producing the "world’s smallest pocket camera" by making an even smaller version of the already little Rollei 16mm, considered the best sub-miniature camera of its time.

It’s got a metal body and only a few plastic components, a Rollei Tessar 1:2.8/23mm scale-focusing lens, an innovative exposure system (fast silicium photo diode measures light for program-controlled exposure with shutter-speed/aperture combinations from 1:2.8 – 4sec. to 1:16 – 1/400 sec), and is capable of crisp 5×7 and good 8×10s prints.

A true quality camera for a film type usually paired with cheap plastic cameras, it was initially priced at $300. Its more affordable plastic predecessor was the Rollei E110.

Availability: Discontinued
