Konishiroku Snappy

This is the nicest sub-miniature camera in my collection. It was manufactured by Konishiroku (Konica) starting in 1949, continuing for a few years. It is similar in size to Tougodo Hit cameras but has a substantially better fit and finish. It uses interchangeable lenses, though the telephoto is quite rare. As a bonus it’s styling is quite reminiscent of Ihagee Exakta cameras.
