This is a tiny, little folding camera by Univex. It is super small and has a beautiful Art Deco faceplate in oxidized silver. This baby functions nicely and looks awesome!

This camera is just beautiful! Clean and tidy. It has a nice solid feel, and everything seems to function smoothly. I don't think you can get a spool of 35mm film in it in the canister, but I bet you could wind your own! This camera still has its take-up spool inside too. You will need to replace the plastic window over the film viewer as it has faded to yellow.

Condition:

Cosmetics - Excellent. Clean, no dents, minimal wear.
Lens - Looks clean and fairly dust-free and scratch-free.
Shutter - Fires well.
Bellows - seem light tight
Mechanics - Pops open, folds up easily.


Specs:
Shutter has only two settings, I and T
Lens - achromatic doublet lens
Measures 2-1/8” x 4” x 7/8” when closed.

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
