Produced between 1946 and 1950 by the William R. Whittaker Co. Ltd, in Los Angeles, California the Micro 16 is smaller than a pack of cigarettes. It was popular with some police forces of the era.

The film is advanced by the normally recessed plunger on the side of the camera, the operation of which is only possible when holding the camera viewer side up. However, the frame counter is on the opposite side of the camera, making for rather amusing operation when taking photos.
