Suzuki Optical Covert
Camera Lighter, 1961
This very rare Suzuki Optical Covert Camera Lighter made in 1955 was a
rage for it's time. It was made by the Suzuki Optical Company of New York.
It took standard Minox type film. The camera had a. fixed-focus 17mm (f8.0)
and one shutter speed - 1/50, a fixed aperture. if you had one of this,
you had state-of-the-art spy and private-eye gear and everyone marveled
at it. Below is a photo of the camera taken out.
You can still
obtain a modern updated digital model of the lighter camera for a fraction
of what these sold for in the 1950's ($59.95) by clicking
