Chronology of cameras Herold 

It is difficult to date this camera because it does not appear in magazines like " Popular Photography" . Its bakelite body can easily mislead . By analogy, when compared with cameras available on the U.S. market, such as Ansco Memar or Contina Zeiss , one can deduce that it dates from the mid 50s. As we also know that Herold Mfg. . became Herold Prod . in 1956 , and that the box is marked Herold Mfg . while the unit is Herold Products, we should not be too far from the truth.

 The entire lower portion of the apparatus is brown bakelite . The back may be removed completely retained by pressure and locked by a rotary latch.
 The upper part is made of gray plastic.
 The metal parts are quite poorly molded . The crown of the objective itself resembles silver colour plastic , like the pseudo- metal parts of the Heller or Monogram models.

 The optical part consists of a single lens that absolutely wants to go out of its housing. The shutter is without cocking . It allows instant or time exposure. There is no real diaphragm , but a rotating plate a
 At the top, two holes are used to connect the pins of a specific flash unit.
