The Meiro B (メイローB) is a Japanese camera of the early 1940s, about which almost nothing is known. The Roman spelling "Meiro" is only conjectural, and even the exact picture format is unclear. The camera is only known from the Japanese official list of set prices dated November 1941; in this document, it is listed among cameras taking 4×5cm or 4×6.5cm pictures on 127 film, and it is attributed to Nagata Sōzaburō, a company which is otherwise unknown.
