The first Yashica Atoron appeared in the 1960s with the Japanese liking for Subminiature cameras. The Atoron makes 8 x 11mm frames. Whilst they have Minox pretentions, they aren't quite as small. The Earlier one were silver, but this facelift to black came about in the 1970s and introduced a few more plastic parts, but still very nicely made, amongst its quality attributes are a shifting viewfinder to account for parralax errors. Fully automatic shutter with exposure up to 8 seconds. They were also availabale in presentation cases, and these turn up fairly commonly. A number of name variants were also produced.
