    Robot Royal III 35mm 2/3 frame roll film camera

    format 24x24mm 50 exposures on one roll of 135 film

    I do not classify Robot Royal as "subminiature camera", because

    1) It uses standard 35mm film, not subminiature film

    2) It is heavier and bigger than many full frame 35mm camera ( for example Rollei 35)

  4. How to carry such a heavy camera is a problem

    It has no lugs for straps, and current half case on market has no strap either.

    Cannot use most German camera case with screw at center. This camera has Leica III style screw at the side
  5. Always wanted one, but haven't yet got to it.

  6. It looks like a Robot Star o50 camera, with a winding knob at center top of camera
