The Spartus No. 120 Box Camera was manufactured by the Spartus Camera Corp. in circa 1942. A simple and inexpensive box camera constructed of Bakelite with a smart chrome decorated front. Exactly the same as the Spartus No. 116/ 616 camera except in film size. This camera was capable of capturing eight full size 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch pictures on No. 120 size film, as the name implies. It featured two waist level brilliant view finders for vertical and horizontal pictures, an optically ground and polished fixed focus lens, single f5.6 aperture, a leather carry handle, film winder knob, and a simple time and single action 1/50 of a second instantaneous shutter that did not need preloading. The camera was priced at $3.97 in 1942 and had some success though it is not known how many were produced or what year production stopped.
