When the Rollei A 110 appeared on the market it was advertised as the world’s smallest pocket camera. Utilizing the new pocket film standard of the 1970s, the 110 film cartridge, it was the smallest serious camera yet introduced to the market. Heinz Waaske’s camera construction team needed 2 years from construction to mass production. In 1974 the prototype of the A 110 was a sensation at the camera fair „Photokina“ since it was smaller than the cardboard boxes in which the single pocket films were sold. But mass production was delayed until late 1975. The efforts needed to make that miniature camera consisting of 260 parts with consistent high quality were time consuming. The camera entered the market high-priced. 1978, before its production was moved from Braunschweig to Singapore, it had already reached a lower price level, 348 DM.
Manufacturer: 1975-1978 in Braunschweig, Germany, 1978-1981 in Singapore
The camera has a typical 110 film camera design: it has to be pulled open. When it is closed important parts like the lens and viewfinder are covered by the two outer parts of the camera body, so this pocket camera can really be carried in the pocket. The difference to the average pocket camera is the use of mainly metal parts for its construction. Most of the few plastic parts are made of the durable Delrin. This choice of quality materials was necessary for reaching the high level of miniaturization and quality.
