    Small is beautiful !
    Yes. It's a Steky III . A new one in my collection
    No confusion. This miniature camera is not a toy.
    It is small but heavy, constructed in every detail with accuracy

    This photo with the Steky next to one of my TLRs gives a good idea of its dimensions

    Steky was designed for use with double perforations film. As far as I know, single perforation is also possible with some precautions

    Interesting camera, not as valuable as I thought looking at Ebay completed listings. Still a worthwhile camera to add to a collection :D

    Very cool. Looks it's built like a small tank.
    Makes me say in a voice to a baby......"Wiggy, wiggy, wiggy......."
