Bought a couple camera items awhile ago and the seller threw this one in for free. If anyone could tell me more about it I'd greatly appreciate it.

Mystery Solved

    Research leads me to believe it was made around 1950

    This is a c.1956 novelty camera that made 16 pictures on 127 rollfilm. There were quite a number of these made by numerous makers with names such as; Cardinal, Buckeye, Cinex, Photo Champ, Halina Baby, and Empire Baby. Value is roughly $1 - $10.

    I had one of these as a kid and it uses 127 film and the pictures are on the low end of the box cameras of the day but I like it (my grandfather gave me mine). Hardbrake

    I love being able to bring back memories by keeping these things around for people to see and remember
