    Does anyone remember the name of an all metal, chrome or nickel plated rollfilm camera made in Ireland or maybe Scotland. It is a vintage "point & shoot" that uses 127 or maybe 120 film.
    thank you!

    That's a good guess, but not it. Corfield is an English make I believe.
    This was a little rollfilm camera that had an all metal polished or satin finish - no leather. It had a simple lens on a circular cone that move out the lens to the correct focal length. I remember it being quite nice looking with the chrome or nickel finish. It used either 127 or 120 film. Like to find one, but I can't remember the name.

    That description doesn't ring a bell, I'm afraid. Corfield was made in Northern Ireland (I realize there's a difference between that and the Republic!), but I wasn't sure if that might have been what you were remembering.
