SUZUKI CAMERA -LITE CAMERA GREEN /KHAKI ENAMEL

Camera -lite zippo style camera .
Made by Suzuki Optical Co.
Dates: 1954
The Camera-Lite is very similar to the Echo 8 camera
This is the green /khaki enamel  version of the camera -lite .
And is very rare and hard to find .
It has the possibility to set the shutter on I or B on the front.
It has a fixed focus 17mm f8 lens and only an instant shutter speed.
The neat reflex viewfinder was also removed and you have to hold the lighter to eye level to use the sports finder. It is more easy to spot, as a camera in use, than the clandestine way of using the Echo 8.
The camera has a green /khaki enamel  finish ,and the text  “camera-Lite on the bottom of the camera and was available in chrome as well as an olive-green/khaki enamel finish.
This camera came in the original box  ,with photo, English instruction paper and Japanese instruction paper all looks to be never used and is like new ,so a complet set.

In 1953 the Suzuki Optical Company’s Echo 8 sub miniature lighter/camera was featured in ‘Roman Holiday’ (Paramount Pictures). The film increased demand which Suzuki could not keep up with. As a result they brought out the Camera Lite as a cheaper, simpler version of the Echo 8.
