From The Annals Of Interesting Camera Design: The Pentax Auto 110

In 1979 Pentax released the acme of 110 format camera design, the Auto 110 (which would be followed by the Auto 110 Super and the Jungle-themed Auto 110 Safari). 110 film is a super-small format that has for the most part gone the way of the Dodo, but it is still available online. The bigger problem is finding a place to get your 110 photos developed, but that’s another story (supposedly Walmart and various other mail-order film processing companies can take care of this, but I have yet to try them).

The most interesting thing about the Auto 110 is that it is the smallest full SLR camera design ever made. You can still get them quite easily on eBay at a very reasonable cost. Because it is a full SLR there are an array of lens options (regular, wide-angle, fisheye etc.) as well as a number of other options. As you can see it takes very clean, in-focus pictures (which can be a plus or a minus depending on your aesthetic), and it fits in the palm of your hand. If it weren’t for the winding sounds and click that it makes when you shoot it, you could easily get away with using it as a spy camera (and what guy hasn’t at some time in their life fantasized about being a spy?).

    What a great cam! Just spent a weekend in NYC shooting with only 110.. I did find a zoom lens online for it as well…

    User Experience will be reinvented via Mobile Devices. These tools are web blogs, banner ads on various web sites and even using search engines. I would recommend you to relocate your keyword to a separate campaign, isolate it from the more influential and demanded keywords.

    However it may seem, getting your website noticed by search engines is not the ultimate aim of a digital marketing agency. Thus it is common notion that professional SEO are expensive. Never allow anyone you don’t completely trust anywhere near your business.

    Some clients can post inquiries on your profile or leave comments on your posts. Thus it is common notion that professional SEO are expensive. Many companies and professionals also offer e-mail marketing services which have proven to be very effective due to the large number of people who have mail ids.

    Some clients can post inquiries on your profile or leave comments on your posts. Before you begin with the cumbersome process of comparing various companies, and finding the best SEO Agency or Web Design Agency, you will need to outline the scope of your work. In conclusion, I have to say that I don’t agree with this scepticism.

    An Online digital marketing agency or web design agency or SEO agency can work as good as those situated in your town. Any business operating with fears of modern technology are at a great disadvantage. Many companies and professionals also offer e-mail marketing services which have proven to be very effective due to the large number of people who have mail ids.

    As any Twitter user will explain to you, re-tweeting is central to Twitter, and it’s probably one of Twitters most useful and powerful tools. These tools are web blogs, banner ads on various web sites and even using search engines. Many companies and professionals also offer e-mail marketing services which have proven to be very effective due to the large number of people who have mail ids.

    This form of marketing does not rely on one technique to achieve a company’s goals. There are people who have the skill and the knowledge to optimise any system you want put in place, and make sure you are getting full use and being rewarded for implementation of digital system. Certainly if you require some unusual functionality – some game, interactive content or widget, and you don’t have design or coding skills yourself, you should consider approaching an agency.
