The Snider 35 was a Nicca Type-5 and was distributed by Gardner & Salomon Pty. Ltd. of Sydney solely for the Australian and New Zealand markets. Reputedly, only fifty to one hundred cameras were sold in 1955/1956. Research by Walsh suggests that fewer than five examples of the Snider camera are known.
