Japan Camera Hunter working on a new 35mm compact film camera


In addition to the upcoming/rumored cameras from Zenit, Yashica, Minolta and Konost (?) there is another new "alternative" 35mm compact film camera coming from the Japan Camera Hunter:

Hunt gave few concrete details about the camera, other than it would be a “premium compact” camera, a market that peaked in the 1990s with designs like the Nikon 28Ti, Minolta TC-1, Contax T3 and Yashica T5.

Bellamy confirmed to me that he is working on this project and that prototypes will not be around for another year or so. In his own words:

“We are going to start running out of compact cameras in about 5 or 10 years’ time… we’re going to be without a camera that’s easy to use. I’ve been working on something… perhaps a compact camera that could appear in the future.”

Update - additional information on the new camera can be found here.
