- The name Imperial was also used by Braun on a folding 6×6 camera. The brand Imperial appears on many simple (and typically, plastic) cameras from the Herbert George/Imperial company of Chicago, USA; and other photography products also carried the name.
The Braun Imperial box cameras were made by Braun in Nuremberg, Germany. The 6×9 variant of 1950 has a design like other box cameras for this format, with two built-in reflecting type finders, one for vertical and the other for horizontal format. It has an aperture ("Blende") selector and a single speed shutter with mode switch (Z for Zeit=time mode, M for Moment=instant mode).
The 6×6 format steel box of 1951 has only one finder, no aperture selector and no lens tube.
