1939 Falcon Miniature Vintage Camera

Falcon Miniature vintage camera photographed by Jeff Baumgart

This Falcon Miniature is the newest addition to my vintage camera collection. It was made in 1939 by the Utility Manufacturing Company in New York. The body is made of Bakelite, and it takes 127 roll film. It came with a 50mm lens with a fixed aperture and fixed focus. The simple spring rotary shutter offers only one speed, 1/25.

It’s nice to also have the original box. Can’t wait to find some 127 film and test it out!
