Introduction | The Only Subminiature That Really Makes Sense | Prices | Film Loading
The Tessina uses a small cartridge to hold a 41cm strip of standard 35mm film. To assist in loading film there is a compact daylight loader that takes a standard 35mm cartridge and the Tessina cartridge. The winder has to be counted and then a small triangular blade cuts the film.
