The Cub name was also used for a small plastic 828 camera, made for a US marketing promotion.

The Coronet Cub is a fairly simple viewfinder camera made by Coronet in Birmingham, England, in several versions, starting c.1939. Each has a plastic body with a sprung telescoping front. The Cub models have a folding frame viewfinder, replaced by a fixed tubular finder in 1948 on the Anastigmat and Flash models, and later a finder built-in to the top plate.

Coronet Cubs use 828 film, taking 28x40mm images.

The Coronet Viscount is a broadly similar but later camera.
