The Spartus Press Flash is an unusually designed box camera introduced by the Spartus Camera Corporation in 1939. It is widely believed to be the very first camera of any kind to feature a built-in flash unit.
As is the case with most box cameras, the Spartus Press Flash has very few controls. A single speed rotary shutter is tripped by a black metal lever located just off the side of the camera at the 10 o’clock position from the lens. Just underneath the shutter lever is a silver metal tab that can be extended for an additional aperture selection. A knurled film advance knob is located just behind the aperture selector.
This camera takes 120 film and is still very much useable to this day although it may be difficult to find the right flash bulbs for and battery for it. In working condition and comes with one 120 spool and original flash cap.
