Minolta made two attempts to offer SLR cameras for the 110 pocket film format. One looked more like a conventional SLR camera, the other was the camera pictured on the right, the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR, which had a built-in 1:4,5/25-50mm zoom lens. The aperture selector was not part of the lens. It was placed around the exposure-meter-eye instead. The meter controlled just the shutter speed. A hot shoe for a flash was an top of the camera.

The other "pocket SLR" was the Minolta 110 Zoom SLR MARK II with a 1:3, 5/25-67mm macro zoom lens. According to the source it's rated to have been one of the best mini cameras ever.
