#42 Fujica Pocket 300

Fujica Pocket 300 (3)
The Fujica Pocket 300 was one of the first models of subminiature cameras presented by Fuji.

They came to this market only in 1976, when Kodak and Agfa were already well established, nevertheless Fuji presented innovative solutions and very well built cameras.
They presented the first zoom camera on this format, the Fujica pocket 330.

This camera camera does not use the film perforations to cock the shutter, so it can be reloaded with 16 mm film. As I have the feeling that Santa is going to bring me a set of film film slitters I'll be able to put it to use.
