The Midget Jilona appeared in 1937 making it the first, and in many ways the original, "Hit" camera. This film format is often referred to as Midget film and the Midget format. Since HIT cameras are still being made, this is one of the longest running subminiature formats.
The Midget Jilona model 1 has a fixed focus 22mm (f6.8) two-element lens and shutter speeds of B and I (1/25). The viewfinder however is a small pop-up like the Eljy Lumiere.
