I like miniature and subminiature cameras. Not only do they tend to have interesting designs but they take up a small amount of space in an increasingly large collection. If and when I shoot with any of these beauties, they will each have their own entry on the website.
Developed by Eastman Kodak in 1923, 16mm film was a cheaper alternative to 35mm film. Though it has survived primarily as a video film, many 16mm still film cameras were manufactured and sold from the 1930’s through the 1980’s.
This is a gorgeous camera. I came across this with its case at a local flea market and almost didn’t because I originally thought the case was too small to house a camera. For $4, I am glad I checked the case.
