Manufactured in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was one of the best-selling cameras between 1940 and 1955, because it was an economic camera (much cheaper than its Kodak equivalent) and good specifications (interchangeable lens, several shutter speeds, a side connection for flash and built-in rangefinder) .

This camera contributed significantly to popularize the 35mm format.

Due to its shape and weight it was called The Brick (the brick).
