Chronology of cameras Cardinal Corp 

Traduction de Nicholas O. Lindan

This camera was made in Hong Kong and Macao. In the USA it can be found under the name 'Buckeye'. The camera appears to be an update of the 'Empire Baby'/'Clix Midget' - the 'boiler bolt' look has been dropped and the back latch has been improved with the addition of two metal clips. The optics have suffered, though, as the lens is no longer the premium 'Optical Crystal' marque and the front viewfinder lens/dust collector is no more. Possibly made by the Haking firm, founded 1956, this sample is of 1965 vintage.
