    Olympus XA is a good 35mm rangefinder, that is also cheap. Minolta TC-1 might have been the smallest, but very expensive. The problem with these tiny 35mm cameras is that they use Telephoto wide angle lenses that hit the edges of the film at an extreme angle, so they vignette even stopped down. but they are very sharp.

    I haven't had a Tessina in my hand in a good 25 years but IIRC, they aren't full frame. I think the Minox 35 I had was smaller than my XA but half the camera. Then, of course, there was the Leica CL/Minolta CLE, the hands down winner as the smallest interchangeable lens 35mm.

    The spring-wound Tessina is the smallest production 35mm camera. It makes the Pocket Instamatic look big.

    The Tessina is front-left.

    For a full frame 35mm SLR- the Zenit-C is considerably smaller than a Pentax MX.

    The Pentax MX is smaller than the Olympus OM1/2.

    According to Wikipedia, the Tessina "takes 14x21 mm pictures on standard 35 mm film (loaded into a special cassette)". Given the "special cassette" and since half frame (single frame) is 18mmx24mm, it doesn't seem that this qualifies as a 35mm camera.

    It would be interesting if someone can post a picture of the Zenit, next to a Pentax MX, and OM-1.

    If it uses 135 film, it is a "35mm" camera.

    Good grief.

    Seems like we need a better definition of a 35mm camera. For example, putting 135 film cart. in a Holga that is made for 120 film, does NOT make it a 135 camera. Or, does it?
