Petal Camera Advertisement

 

This advertisement for the Petal subminiature camera is from the February, 1949 issue of Minicam magazine.  The Petal was marketed in the USA by Mycro Camera Company, Inc. of New York City, New York.

The ad states that the Petal operates on the principle of the human retina.  Such misleading nonsense was not uncommon in USA camera advertisements of the 1930s and 40s.  The unnecessary hyperbole belittles this wonderful little camera.
