The Victor Vest (ビクターベスト) is a Japanese camera, about which almost nothing is known. It is only mentioned in the official list of set prices compiled in October 1940 and published in January 1941. The camera is placed in the same price category as the Baby Minolta and Sakura, at ¥10. This, together with the name Victor Vest, suggests that the camera is 4×6.5 format. It was perhaps related to the Victor folders, made by Motodori.
