If someone had bothered to put a good lens and exposure system in a 110 camera it might have been different, but apart from that weird looking Pentax you mention I don't think anybody bothered.

Best wishes

Wasn't there a problem with the cartridge design prohibiting the use of a film registration plate that doomed the format to 4x6 mediocrity from the outset. Pentax's attempt was seen as misguided by the photography journals of the day - if memory serves.
