Pentax 110 system

Postby Big Red on Tue Nov 18, 2008 10:12 am

Bought this transparent display model last year and took a few pics of it.

In case your wondering, yes it does take pics but film is hard to get for it nowadays.

Theres more pics of the rest of the system on my blog at

Shane, a neat reminder of a bygone era. I had never seen a clear any camera to the dslr era, I assume these are probably rare. Had a 110 camera myself, fancied it as a poor man's Minox

Fascinating!

I had a 110 camera too, loved it, but the image quality wasn't very good.

my Mum also had an old 110 camera ... had a tiny little plastic covered hole for a lens and it produced crap pics .
mum loved it because it had no settings ... just point and hope :lol:

she would be overwhelmed by how fancy the Pentax is in comparison.
