The Imperial Mark 27 camera was originally manufactured by the Herbert George Company of Chicago Illinois in the 1950s. It was an innovative design as it incorporated the view finder and flash unit as part of the camera, and also provided a decorative cover for the flash unit when not in use. The camera was simple, compact and inexpensive and entirely made of plastic. It featured a simple fixed focus meniscus lens, and a switch to adjust the aperture for color or black and white film. It was capable of capturing 2 X 2 inch color slides, kodacolor or B&W pictures on number 127 roll film. It used the small No. AG-1 flash bulbs sometimes called "jelly bean" bulbs. A boy scout version was also made.
