The Scenex camera is the same as Cub and the Snappy. They measure 3 1/8 inches wide, 2 inches deep, and 2 inches high. They are little miniature or subminiature novelty cameras. The Scenex candid camera was marketed in 1950 by Earl Products Co, for 25x25mm exposures on 828 film. A small metal mask supports the film frame in the exposure compartment in an arched position. This mask is usually missing, and the camera would appear to take a larger image, but the film would not travel properly or be in focus. The camera was formally marketed in the 1940’s under the Cub name by American Advertising and Research Co. and both Cub plus the Scenex were used for premiums by various companies. The Scenex was sold for 15 Cent to customers who also bought a carton of any Pepsodent product. The Snappy is the same camera as the Cub and Scenex, but made in England and uses standard S882 film. The Scenex had a white winding knob or a metal winder knob. The Snappy pocket size camera also has a white winding knob but the Cub’s knob was light red. A paper that came with the Scenex Candid camera reads: (Use Kodak 828 film / Note if your dealer does not stock 828 Film, advise us. Earl Products Co. 701 N. Sangamon ST. Chicago 22, ILL. / A SUGGESTION When / you have film developed ask for OVERSIZE PRINTS).
