The Halina STB Flashmatic 110 Tele was one of several 110 film cameras made by Haking. It is a relatively average looking simplistic fixed focus camera with built in flash of its era. Its catch is that you can switch between Normal angle (25mm) and Tele (43mm). The switch not only moves between lens but moves a framing mask into the simple viewfinder.
The flash needs to be manually triggered. Its 2 AA batteries do not power any metering, low light warning or exposure control, meaning the camera is not only fixed focus but fixed exposure too. On the film compartment door there is embossed a flash distance table although this can be hard to read as on transparent plastic
