Universal Camera Corp.Meteor
This is another camera that I have mostly because of the way it looks. I have only once gone to the trouble of making 620 film for it. Besides its looks, the Meteor is a solidly made camera. It was sold for $15 back in 1949. Like with a lot of cameras of this type it is hard to find the exact dates for when it was made. Some said it was as early as 1947 while others said 1949. Probably it stopped being made in the early 1950's since Universal Camera Corp. was having serious financial trouble by then.
Here are a few links for more details, pictures and opinions about the Meteor.
