Instructions

The PIC camera was made in England by Pressure Sealed Plastics Ltd around 1950.
It is a black plastic camera of an unusual disc-shape, approximately 10cm in diameter and 5cm front to back.

It has a simple meniscus lens and uses 127 roll-film giving 16 negatives approx 3 x 4cm.
The camera has a pair of red windows, marked A and B on the back of the camera to enable the film to be wound-on for half the normal VP size negative to give 16 on 127.

A most unusual feature is that there are two shutter releases on the front of the camera. These are marked S (for instantaneous) and T (for time).

The camera is marked "Pats Pend, Regd Dsgn No 870468, Made in England".
