Brand: Hanimex
Year: 1970’s – 1980’s

Why it’s iconic: Founded by Jack Hannes, Hanimex was an importer of European cameras to Australia, as well as an exporter and distributor of SLR lenses for various renowned camera systems. They eventually manufactured their own cameras that were made by Tōkyō Kōgaku, Sedic and Royal in Japan, by Finetta, Montanus, Vredeborch and Dacora in West Germany, by Pentacon in East Germany, and other Chinese makers. Like Vivitar, they had a long line of 110 cameras available. One of their most popular models was the Amphibian MF, a yellow underwater 110 cam.

Availability: Discontinued

    My first camera was a 110 camera, it was My Little Pony camera, all pink and white with a rainbow... If I found it, I would be sooo happy! But I think it is lost forever. And I can't find any image of it on the internet... :(
