Imperial Camera: Debonnair

Postby bill339 » Wed Dec 30, 2020 5:27 am

The Imperial Debonair is an idiosyncratically-styled plastic camera for 620 film made by Herbert George Co., in Chicago Illinoi around 1964. Bodies were molded in black or brown plastic. The same camera was also marketed as the Official Cub Scout/Boy Scout/Girl Scout Camera. It takes twelve images and image area is slightly larger than 2 1/4″ square. The single shutter speed is about 1/90 of a second. Some of the other features are an optical viewfinder, large film advance knob, flash attachment capability, an aluminum sun visor over the lens, large shutter release button, and an attached wrist strap or handle.
