I have been always moved by vintage bakelite cameras
I don’t know why.
May be because molding technics permit interesting design.
I recently found an American camera sold circa 1940 by a company named King Sales in Chicago.
The model is called Candid Cinéx Camera. (The “e” of Cinéx with an accent.....strange!)
The body is made of brown marbled bakelite
A great pleasure for a small price

Neat piece. Looks small, does it take 828 roll film?

Thanks Dany. Love the way the finder is molded on top the body.

I did love shooting on 127 film. Just hard to find nowadays.
