Keystone Camera Company

The Keystone Camera Company was an American manufacturer of consumer photographic equipment. Notable products were Movie cameras, 126 and 110 cameras with built-in electronic flash (the "Everflash" series).

in the 1930s, the firm built low cost 16mm cameras that are still in use today.

The firm considered that labeling its products as Made in USA was an important part of its appeal.

The company filed for Chapter 11 protection in January 1991.

One popular version of their movie camera line was the Capri K27, with 3 filters and 9 settings for cloudy to sunny day conditions. This was a light, easy to use movie camera, and is considered a rare collectable today.

Famous quotes containing the words company and/or camera:

    All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self.... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself—a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required.... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater.
    Philip Roth (b. 1933)

    The camera can represent flesh so superbly that, if I dared, I would never photograph a figure without asking that figure to take its clothes off.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
