I was scanning for deals on fleabay when I noticed a quirky little Minolta 110 film camera with a 25-50mm zoom. It appears to be of a true SLR design as most listings describe it, but my big curiosity was whether there were any interchangeable lenses for it. I know, as most of you do also, that "SLR" does not mean "interchangeable lenses," but I would guess that most people, many ebay sellers included, could make that mistake.
So is the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR just that or does it accept any other lenses?
Being fair, you can go a bit bigger than 6x4" on 110 film, most of the problems were the junky cameras and lenses, el cheapo. Def got some ropey results, heck pixel peep those and you would get a shock, 100% and most would collapse with fear and disgust!
All these formats were kind of experiments, the other being those flat disc cameras, interesting idea, but nah..it was never really that clever.
I never bothered much with the other small film formats, 35mm seemed about the best compromise..if you didn't fancy MF gear.
