The Coronet Midget was a tiny box camera made of Bakelite by the Coronet Camera Co. in Birmingham, England. It was introduced c.1935[1], in several colours - black, blue (1937), lime green, olive green, brown, red/black mottled and rose/orange mottled[2].

It took six exposures on 16mm paper-backed rollfilm, using a simple Taylor-Hobson f10 fixed-focus meniscus lens and a 1/30s fixed-speed shutter. The rear of the camera hinges downward for film loading. A red window centred in the back is used to control film advance, wound by either a plain knob or a hinged D-shaped loop.
