The Coronet 3D camera was manufactured by the Coronet Camera Company in circa 1954. A uniquely designed 3D camera advertised as two cameras in one, able to take stereoscopic pics or ordinary snap shot prints on standard number 127 roll film. It was constructed of plastic Bakelite with a built-in binocular viewer. The camera was made without and with a synchronized flash feature. A few variations in the body style was also made, including an early ribbed black body, a smooth black body and a speckled color body. This camera would take 4 stereo pair exposures, or a lever on the side allowed for blocking out the no. 1 lens and taking 8 single non-stereo exposures. The non-flash model was priced at $5.40 and the Synchronized flash model was priced at $5.80. The camera has two, meniscus fixed focus lenses, Single-blade guillotine shutter (spring powered) with a capping blade for the number one lens, and the format is 4, 42 x 50 mm exposures on 127 roll-film in consecutive stereo pairs. Film advance indicated by a round red window on the back cover. When taking stereo pairs the film is advanced until an odd number shows in the red window (1, 3, 5, and 7). When taking eight single exposures on a roll of film you would adjust the blanking plate over the number 1 lens. The film is advanced to show even and odd numbers in the red window starting with 1 and ending with 8.
