Megahouse Leica M3

The following information is taken from the twelfth edition of the Mc Keown guide.
In 2000, a subsidiary of the Japanese group Bandaï specializing in adult toys launched a series of miniature cameras using the Minox film, inspired by iconic cameras. These devices were distributed in Europe by Minox. Two years later, it is the fiasco, sales do not take off. One of the directors of the Megahouse brand decides to extend the concept under the brand Sharan, name previously associated with that of Megahouse. Success will not be more important.
Some time later, Minox will produce digital versions for its own account.
The model shown here is a Megahouse, made in 2000, as indicated on the sole. The Sharan logo is on the front.
The cocking lever actually advances the film and cocks the shutter. The view counter is disguised as a speed selector. The self-timer lever is inactive. The distance ring rotates but is useless, since the device is a fixfocus.
The viewfinder is simple.
