Vivitar Radio 110
There were several subminiature cameras that had radios built into them during
the transistor radio craze of the 1960's. All of these were 16mm cameras
as that was the most popular submini format of the time. Vivitar made
one of the few 110 format cameras that had a radio. But since the 110
format did not appear until the 1970's this radio/camera was much later than
most. It was also much smaller than most. Despite the inclusion
of an electonic flash unit, Vivitar managed to make a truly pocketable
camera/radio unit. Otherwise the camera features (and radio features
for that matter) were pretty basic. The camera/radio uses two AA batteries.
While most Vivitar 110 cameras are easy to find and inexpensive, this
one is rather unusual.
