PETRI 110 CAMERAS
(1975) Petri gets into a market that is already dominated by Kodak, Pentax, Minolta and many others. Their first 110 was bare-bones -- one speed, one aperture. 1/100s and f11 on a 24.5mm lens. ISO 100 speed film only, and only in direct sunlight.
Same as the PF1, but a slide-in telephoto was added to create a 42mm optic. Who knows, maybe there was a PF3, but all of the PF cameras were probably made by ZENIX.
Same as the later Zoom 110 2S -- made by ZENIX.
Makes you wonder if there was a ZOOM 110 1S! There was -- the Petri PF Zoom. Like it's predecessor, the Zoom 110 2S was a big step up. It has a seven element, 25-42mm f:5.6 zoom lens with three aperture settings -- f5.6, f9.5, and f16. These are set by selecting from three different weather symbols on the top of the camera. This did not adjust the shutter speed in any way. There are two speeds -- 1/125 and 1/250 -- which are selected by the film speed tab on the 110 cassette. ISO 100 gives 1/125, while ISO 400 selects 1/250. No meter needed. The lens focuses from infinity to two feet. It is the same as the Zenix Zoom TS.
Looks like a bare-bones 110. Maybe there was a 100 or even a 300.
A bare-bones 110 with the addition of the Kodak-like flip-up cover and flip-down handle.
Perhaps the first 110 to use the Minox-style push-pull feature to advance the film and cock the shutter in a 110 camera, but otherwise bare-bones.
