This is a vintage Nomad 127 film camera, made by Sawyer's (the manufacturer of View-Master) circa 1957. It's a simple box camera that was marketed for children. It produces eight 4 x 6.5 cm photos per roll. The body is brown bakelite, accented on the front with checkered white metal. It comes with a flash unit in matching brown bakelite that fits into the top of the camera with metal pins.

Very good condition. I haven't tested this camera with film, but the shutter and film advance both appear to work. Very clean inside. Viewfinder is clear. The bakelite is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. Original strap is in good condition. The flash has some very light wear on the metal. In great shape overall.

The unique design of this camera makes it an ideal display piece. It can also be used to shoot film, as 127 film is still made by some European and Canadian manufacturers. (See examples at http://www.flickr.com/groups/127/) Or, if you prefer to use a more readily available film, 120 film can be modified and 35 mm can be respooled to run in a 127 camera.

Comes with original manuals and box. Box has a broken corner, and a young former owner wrote his name and address inside, but it is intact.
