The Capitol 127 camera was sold by the Metropolitan Industries company of Chicago Illinois, in circa 1930. It was a simple minicam type camera constructed of black bakelite, with a decorative faceplate depicting the Capitol building dome. It was fitted with a simple meniscus lens and instantaneous shutter. This camera captured 3 x 4 cm sized exposures on number 127 roll film. This model carried many different face plates, labeled from many different manufacturers. This camera was similar to the CANDEX miniature camera by the General Products Company and the Clix De Luxe by Metropolitan.
