#43 Hanimex 110 FL Tele

This camera was made in the very early 80's commissioned by Hanimex, probably to Haking of Hong-Kong.

Hanimex 110 FL Tele

It's a camera like many of it's time.
It has a sliding lens that transforms the focal distance in a small tele, hence the name of the camera.
The film advance/shutter cocking is "a la" Kodak, by a thumb slider on the camera bottom.
The electronic flash is turned on/off with a small slider and is powered by two AA batteries.
Uses 110 film cartridges, allowing a maximum of 20 13 x 17 mm exposures.

Stay tuned (o;

#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.
