PENTAX auto 110 Super

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.

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:
