There were plenty of tiny 35mm cameras in the film days, there is nothing that prevents

But those lenses, if zooms, had slow apertures.  They forced the user to load it with 400 speed film which wasn't as good as it is today.  Many a compact 35mm film camera with 35-120mm zoom lens were often with slow f/4-f/13 maximum aperture.
