The Steky is a series of 16mm cameras introduced in Japan after WW2. At that time film and processing costs were expensive so 16mm cameras were very popular. Most of these 16mm cameras were of low quality and not much more than toys. The Steky came with interchangeable lenses, variable shutter and aperture speeds in a very robust camera. Some sub-mini enthusiasts still use these cameras by carefully loading their cassettes with perforated 16mm film. Once a common sight at camera shows the Steky is getting harder to find.
