Another Depression Era camera, this Univex AF-2 came out at the very low price of $1.00. This aggressive pricing policy helped the manufacturer maintain some kind of market despite the very poor economy. This is such a cute little camera -- about 4" long -- and it shows clean styling that was a carryover from the Deco 1920s. As you'll see in the photos, this piece isn't pristine. The front catch is a little fussy and the bellows are worn. Hard times are hard on cameras, too. A really interesting piece of photo history.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY:
I am helping to find new homes for a huge collection of vintage cameras. As a professional photographer myself, I am really enjoying getting to know some of these strange and wonderful pieces. The gentleman who assembled this collection chose pieces in good shape and gently cleaned them with compressed air and a soft cloth. Many might benefit from your detailed attention but I’ve left them as is rather than risk damaging them in any way. While in most cases I will not be running film through them, I will check to see that the shutter fires, parts move if they are supposed to, and things appear to be as they should be. If I find any problems, I’ll list them in the description and suggest that the item be used only for display or repurposing However, due to their vintage nature, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, THESE ITEMS ARE SOLD “AS IS” WITH NO GUARANTEE OF WORKING ORDER AND NO RETURNS ACCEPTED UNLESS ITEM RECEIVED IS NOT AS DESCRIBED. Please convo me with any specific questions and I’ll do my best to get you the info.

SHIPPING: OMG, why is it so much???? I don't hide shipping costs in the item price. I want you to know who's getting the money! Canada is quite a bit higher on postage than the US and Canada Post in their wisdom has discontinued their Flat Rate Box program. I have a few of the boxes left but once they are gone, we’re back to regular prices. So the price listed is for my best estimate at the cost of shipping the single item above with a TRACKABLE method. On the plus side, CanPost shipping is usually safe and relatively fast. BUYING MORE THAN ONE ITEM AT A TIME SAVES YOU MONEY because I’ve become pretty handy at packing lots of stuff safely into one box. I do my best to keep your shipping costs at a minimum. As always, once I do the calculations for your finished package, I happily refund any shipping overpayment greater than $2. I am also happy to work with International buyers – please convo me with your shipping address and I’ll give you a shipping cost.
