ISO 400 film in the 110 format came out and the 110ED20 was designed for ISO 80 and ISO 400 film. It succeeded the 110ED camera.

Improvements centered on the shutter mechanism. The Canon-developed electronic shutter had stepless speeds from 2 sec. to 1/1000 sec. and a mechanical shutter speed of 1/125 sec.

The camera size was the same as the 110ED. The height increased by 0.8 mm and the weight increased by 45 g. The price also 2,000 yen more. The 110ED20 was Canon’s last Pocket Instamatic camera.
