The Micta (ミクタ) is a Japanese subminiature camera, only known from an entry in Kokusan kamera no rekishi.[1] It takes 50 exposures on 16mm film, and has lever advance.[2] The shutter consists of a rotating drum, and gives T, B, 1–400 speeds.[2] The 20/3.5 lens has a built-in filter, which is perhaps retractible.[2]

The Micta was made at prototype level only by Takahama Sachi (高浜祥), perhaps in 1952–3.[3] Takahama Sachi is most probably the name of an individual, and the project was perhaps not backed by a company when it was announced to the press.

Notes

  1. Kokusan kamera no rekishi, p.367, claims that an article titled "The Micta one-motion subminiature camera" (ワンモーション超小型カメラMICTA) appears in Shashin Kōgyō January 1953, but there is no such article in this issue of the magazine.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Kokusan kamera no rekishi, p.367.
  3. Kokusan kamera no rekishi, p.367. There are doubts about the date, because of the apparent mistake in this source.
