The Falcon Miniature (or Falcon Deluxe Miniature) 127 film cameras were made in New York by the Utility
Manufacturing Company, starting c.1939. Later, after being
taken over by Spartus the same series continued, now manufactured in Chicago. The camera bodies were made of Bakelite,
and styled somewhat like the 35mm Argus A. The image
format was 3×4 cm, using dual red windows to advance the
film. Different body moldings, lens faceplates, and viewfinder
styles all appeared under the Falcon Miniature name. Most of
the bodies include a compartment to store an extra film roll.
One Falcon body style (with horizontal ribbing) was a clear
design inspiration for the Lomographic Sprocket Rocket.
