PENTAX 110 SUPER
It's hard to improve on perfection but Pentax did it. In 1982, they
came out with an improved version of the original Pentax Auto 110.
Many consider it the pinnacle in 110 photography. Fortunately,
it's easy to tell the difference between the models. The original just
has "Auto 110" on the faceplate. This model has "Auto 110 Super" on
Here is a list of features which the Super has compared to the plain Pentax
1. The Super has a microprism focusing collar around the central split-image
spot -- both have split-image and ground glass screen.
2. The Super has a backlight compensation button for 1.5 EV additional exposure.
3. The Super has a self-timer, with a blinking red light on the front of
the camera for warning, and a plastic cover for the eyepiece to exclude
4. The Super has a recessed shutter button and a shutter lock to avoid accidental
firing of the shutter.
5. The Super's yellow, low-light warning LED in the viewfinder comes on at
1/45 sec (or slower) shutter speed -- instead of 1/30 sec.
6. The Super's minimum exposure is 1/400 sec at f/18 -- rather than 1/750
sec at f/13.5.
7. The Super has a single stroke film advance -- rather than a two stroke
8. The Super weights 178g -- rather than 172g.
9. The Super has a captive cover for the flash connection, making it less
easy to lose.
10. The Super has a very slightly brighter finder.
The Super uses two A76 batteries.
