Introduced in 1978, this was a revolutionary camera system. It is on display in the National Spy Museum in Virginia. "System 10 lenses are so fine and so precise, that they can render a proper razor-sharp image on the 110 negative itself. They are fully capable of producing color images of outstanding quality. Not just at 8x10, but at 11" x 14" also. In terms of image quality, System 10 is the first 110 camera that can honestly be favorably compared to a 35mm SLR." Pentax Advertising, March 1979
Pentax 110's are the smallest interchangeable lens SLR with TTL metering made. Like a very small 35 mm Single Lens Reflex, the whole system can easily be palm held. People mistake this for a toy it is so small.
Pentax came up with a great camera system, offering true SLR focusing/viewing, programmed exposure, six lenses and two flashes to choose from, and a "motor-drive." There is also a large support system of accessories. This is the largest Sub-Miniature system ever.
This Pentax Auto 110 SLR Camera comes with a Pentax 24 mm f/2.8 lens, an 18 mm lens,and a photocopy of the instruction manual. There is film, but it is out of date. Camera and lens are in very good operating condition. Cosmetically very nice overall, one small scuffed spot, and a few marks on focusing screen.
