There were lots of 110 cameras with flash units built in. But there were
not many designed with a fast optic as well. The problem with a slow lens
and a built-in flash is that the flash could only be used at a close distance.
This severely limits the usefulness of the camera. The Lightmaster
1000 was one design combining a flash and a fast lens -- and at an attractive
price!. Most cameras with this combination of features added other
bells, whistles, and automatic features which increased the price substantially.
Not the Lightmaster 1000, despite its 22mm f5.6 lens. If the
lens wasn't fast enough for the situation, the built-in flash would do the
trick. The camera uses AA batteries.
