A 6x9 folding, 120 format camera produced in 1946 by the Vokar Corporation[1]. The camera has a plastic body with metal top and bottom plates. Film advance and rewind knobs are on the top plate. Lugs for carry straps are absent, but a single ring is provided on the completely removable back. A number of lens variations are known:

  • a 75mm f4.5 fixed focus Meniscus lens in a simple Instant and Bulb shutter.
  • a 75mm f4.5 Wollensak Velostigmat in Wollensak shutter[2]
  • a 75mm f4.5 in a Gitzo 1 shutter[3]

The camera was also sold in Germany badged as the Wirgin Junior and, more elaborately decorated, as the Wirgin Deluxe and is one of the very few US-made but German-badged cameras.[4]
