The Honey is a Japanese subminiature taking 14×14mm pictures on 17.5mm paper backed rollfilm, made around 1960, ostensibly by Mascot Camera.
The Honey is a cheap camera revisiting the Hit concept with a new design, in the same style as the Bell 14 or Toyoca Ace. The viewfinder is integrated in the top housing, which is much sleeker than on the traditional Hit. The film is advanced by a knob on the photographer's right. The lens has a fixed focus and aperture, and has no marking. The everset shutter gives instant exposures only. The shutter plate is inscribed Honey at the top and MASCOT CAMERA JAPAN at the bottom.
