The truth is that when the 110 format in the early Seventies was introduced, the production of the former submini cameras, and the film they used, ceased, also processing became more expensive and harder to find.

Some really good subminiature cameras exists, Minox in the frontline. Almost every respectable camera manufacturer had a line of 110 format cameras. Even 110 format SLR cameras were made (Pentax, Minolta).

Cellular phones could be considered as the next generation of submini cameras.
