(1974) 23mm (f2.8-16.0), (4/3) scale-focusing Tessar lens. Close-focusing
to 3.3 feet. Electronic shutter with speeds of 4 seconds - 1/400. Silicone
meter provides programmed exposure control with the camera selecting the
most suitable combination of aperture and shutter speed. The cameras
had no body serial numbers, but the lenses were numbered. Dimensions:1.75
x 3.3 x 1.2 inches (44x84x30mm). Weight: 6 1/2 oz (185 g) -- with battery.
Film wind operation is by push-pull film wind, so there is no film wind lever
on this camera. Computer controlled flash system, test button with
dual indication for time and normal exposure. In the bight-frame finder on
this camera, a green signal is indicated, which shows a correct exposure
and the battery remainings. Tripod socket. This is truly a quality
camera for a film type normally used in inexpensive plastic cameras. Still,
one wonders just how much money people would pay for a 110! The Rollei
A110 was priced initially at $300. One does have to focus the camera, however,
using a zone sytem with little pictures of people and mountains in the upper
part of the viewfinder. Most of the cameras have a satin black finish. Some
were made in brush chrome. Although the results were excellent, the camera
had a reputation as being mechanically unreliable. Uses one PX27 battery.
Some models can be found with an
"atom" symbol on the front. It is not known if the "atom" model
has any differences in features.
(1976) Although the Rollei A110 was a quality camera, it was very expensive for a 110 camera. To boost sales a slightly simpler and less-expensive version of the A110 was introduced -- the E110. It had the same lens -- 23mm (f2.8-16.0), (4/3) scale-focusing Tessar lens. The electronic shutter speeds were changed to 4 seconds - 1/250. The silicon meter was replaced with a CDS meter, but still provides programmed exposure control. Size and weight stayed the same. In addition, there is an automatic film feeler to set film speeds. Tripod socket. This camera is less common and usually found in brushed chrome, while its predecessor, the A110, is usually found in black. Although the results were excellent, the camera had a reputation as being mechanically unreliable. Uses one PX27 battery.
