The Deluxe Cinex camera was manufactured in Chicago and is believed to be sold by Spartus Camera Corporation in circa 1950 but has a label on the original box that reads “Utility Plastic Products Co. Chicago Illinois”. A point and shoot camera with the body constructed of black Bakelite, the lens is plastic, grey plastic back cover, and plastic lens housing. There are metal parts like the wind knobs, shutter assembly, back cover clips, screws, and spring film spool holders inside. The name was used for several models by a few Chicago based camera companies and on the lens housing is printed Chicago, Ill, and USA. It uses 127 roll film that produces 4 x 4cm exposures. Some Deluxe Cinex cameras came with a white printed lens ring and others were black. The view finder is a tunnel frame with no optics. The shutter has two settings of time and instant and the speed of the shutter is of 1/50 of a second. It also has two round red view windows for lining up the frame by using the frame numbers on the film backing. These windows are numbered 1 and 2. When you have the same number in both windows, you are at the next frame.
