MIOM was a French company based in Vitry-sur-Seine near Paris. Its name is an acronym for Manufacture d'Isolants et d'Objets Moulés. It specialized in making isolating materials and cast plastic parts. It existed since 1929 and founded its photography branch in 1937. It made several viewfinder cameras for roll film which were made of bakélite, a new plastic material for which the company had a license from the Compagnie Générale d'Électricité. The lenses of the cameras were all made by Boyer, even if they had other names. Only the lenses for the last camera models were supplied by Angénieux
