Tōa Kinzoku (東亜金属) was a Japanese company based in Shitaya (Tokyo) in 1943.[1] At the time, it was the maker of the Midget subminiature camera distributed by Misuzu Shōkai.[2] This camera was initially made by Jilona Shōkai from 1937, and the nature of the relationship between these two companies is unknown.
