Go to the 110 index Fujica Pocket 350ZOOM

Pocket 350ZOOM came out a year after the Pocket 350Z which was the first 110 camera with a zoom, beating the Minolta SLR Zoom 110 to the market place in 1976. The Pocket 350ZOOM It has a focal range of 1.5m (5ft) to infinity with a close focus of 1m (39 inches).  The viewfinder is coupled to the slider from normal to telephoto and parallax marking indicate the limit of the frame for zoomed photographs. It does not use the perforations to cock the shutter but requires the cassette to be notched, on the bottom edge, to allow the shutter to trip.
