Cam-O Corp. was a camera maker in Kansas City, Missouri (USA). Considering the scant history found online about the company, it seems to have made no great impression on the camera world.

"School camera"

Cam-O manufactured a wooden TLR camera for long 46mm film or 1.75" film rolls, used for class photos.

This model was sold in a 'kit' containing the camera, a tripod, light stands and incandescent lamp heads, a background stand, and a window-shade-type painted backdrop. These were all packed into a rather large carrying case.

Some touches to the camera are elegant, others pretty crude. There was no focus allowed for - other than by moving the camera back and forth. One known example includes a 4 1/2" Wollensak Raptar lens in an Alphax Heavy Duty shutter.
