Sub-Miniature Film Camera Kit | Hit Camera + Original case

Sub-Miniature Film Camera Kit | Hit Camera + Original case

A beautiful vintage sub-miniature camera from the 1930s, this Mycro Camera is amazing to experiment with film photography & to take a step back into the past.

The Hit is a subminiature camera taking 14×14mm exposures on 17.5mm film, based by the Tougodo company based in Toyohashi. It met a large success, and its name became widely used to designate a whole category of cameras, the Hit-type cameras.

The original Hit has an f/11 lens, an everset shutter with release lever at the lens tube, and an advance knob that can't be turned into the wrong direction. Its production started in the years when Japanese cameras were marked "Made in Occupied Japan" (1947-1951), probably in 1950. The earliest have a 30mm lens and just instant mode. Later models have also B mode and a mode switch lever at the lens tube, opposite to the shutter release. Some examples were made with a simple exposure counter at the base of the advance knob

NB: You will need to cut down 35mm film to fit the camera & load in the dark.

The camera has been fully tested & is in great working order.

Returns accepted within 14 days if there is an issue with the camera.
