Item details

The Imperial 127 Reflex Flash was made by Herbert George Co. of Chicago Illinois in circa late 1959. It is a simple, vertically styled reflex camera made of plastic. It features a top mounted view finder with a pop up hood, a simple fixed focus lens, and a switch to adjust the aperture for color or black and white film. It is capable of capturing 4 X 4 cm exposures on 127 roll film.

This camera is in excellent condition! The lenses and viewfinder are clear and free of fungus. I have not yet film tested this camera; however, I have used many similar cameras in the past and this one seems in good working order. The shutter seems to fire as it should, although the shutter release button is a little sticky and slow to return to the start position. This does not seem to affect the speed of the shutter. There are a few scuffs and scratches to the silver striped face of the camera. The film winder advances as it should. This camera could be used with 120 or 35 mm film – with some modifications and/or rolling your own film in a dark room. A great piece for analog and lomography enthusiasts who love to experiment with vintage cameras. It also makes an excellent collectors display piece. The original strap is included on the camera and is in excellent condition. Camera measures 5 inches tall without the viewfinder lid opened.
