Here is a vintage Imperial Satellite 127 film Camera. Shows ware with scuffs and marks, a bit of dust in the view finder. Shutter works as it should, camera has not been film tested. Stands approximately 4 5/8” tall plus flash unit.

The Imperial Satellite 127 was created by the Herbert George Company in Chicago, Illinois. The company changed hands in 1961 and it was renamed to the Imperial Camera Corp. They were one of the first to offer cameras in multiple colors.

The Imperial Satellite uses 127 roll film and captures twelve 2 x 2 inch (or 4×4 cm) exposures and it had a detachable flash unit that takes M2 flash bulbs. (Flash unit not included)
It has a fixed shutter like most of these cameras with one speed at around 1/50th of a second with two aperture settings marked color and B&W. Color film back then was much slower than today, so the aperture for the color setting was larger than the aperture for the black and white setting.
