The Whittaker Micro 16 was a subminiature camera for 16mm film cartridges. It was sized like a deck of cards. It was made by Wm. R. Whittaker, Ltd. in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California since 1946. It had a built-in reflecting type viewfinder. An optional sports finder was available. Detectives liked that camera since it could be hidden in an empty cigarette wrapper.
