Rollei A110

Rollei A110 1

The Rollei A110 is considered one of the best 110 cameras ever made. It is all metal and surprisingly heavy for its size.

I bought this one on eBay for $15 a few weeks ago. I was skeptical as they usually go for well over $100 but I figured I’d give it a try. It did not work out of the box, but I am really hoping that it just needs a new battery, which has been ordered from China.
