In 1950 Earl Products Co. (Chicago IL, USA) marketed the Scenex, a small plastic novelty camera for 25x25mm exposures on 828 film. A small metal mask supports the film in an arched position. This mask is usually missing ,and the camera would appear to take a larger image, but the film would not travel properly or be in focus. Formally marketed under the Cub name by American Advertising and Research Co. Both Cub and the Scenex were used for premiums by various companies.
The Cub was marketed by American Advertising and Research Co
The Snappy is the same camera as the Cub and Scenex, but made in England and uses standard S882 film.
