Chronology of cameras Universal 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

If Meteor has a distance setting, four apertures (11, 16, 22 and 32), the time exposure and the snapshot, a extinctometer ( illegible), it have especially a telescopic tube!!! And nothing prevents from starting, even if the tube is insufficiently drawn. A small metal pin prevents release only when the tube completely returned.
In 1947, this camera was sold by General Camera Company of Chicago to $27,30.
