Description:
The Asahi PENTAX auto 110 Super was the second and last SLR camera for the 110 cartridge film format from PENTAX. The camera was a part of an extensive system with several lenses, two flashes, winder, close-up diopters and other accessories. Compared to the auto 110, the auto 110 Super added a self timer and exposure compensation for backlit situations. The auto 110 Super was a precision instrument and could get the best possible image quality out of the 110 film format. No other manufacturer had dared to produce an interchangeable lens SLR camera for this format.

Pros: Small, fun and complete system
Cons: hard to find places to develop 110 film

Great and fun little system that includes everything you will ever need.

My only complains:
- The winder... the door is very flimsy and can easily brake... main reason for why is almost impossible to find a winder in perfect condition.
- The 100 film... the good news is that the guys from lomography are still making this film type (at least at the date I am posting this)... the bad news is that is very hard to find a place where to develop these films - unless you ship them and wait a long time to receive them back.

Other than that, personally I am perfectly happy with this little Pentax system .

Pros: Just one more correctional note
Cons:

I feel the "correctional note" by above reviewer is misleading:
"only to inform the reviewer of the Pentax 110 camera, who believes this was the only SLR for that film format:
there was another 110 SLR camera with a 'fixed' zoom lens too..."

But the reviewer said:
"No other manufacturer had dared to produce an interchangeable lens SLR camera for this format."

Both the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR and the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR MARK II had 'fixed' zoom lenses (NOT interchangeable).
Both the Pentax auto 110 and the Pentax auto 110 super had interchangeable lenses, including a zoom lens.

Camera Review
only to inform the reviewer of the Pentax 110 camera, who believes this was the only SLR for that film format:

there was another 110 SLR camera with a 'fixed' zoom lens too, and a really good one at that as i saw really nice pictures taken with it:
