The Detrola Model H fit between the model G and the model K in the Detrola Corporation's line of bakelite cameras for 3×4 cm exposures on 127 film[1]. All these date from 1939 or 1940, after which the former radio company ran into trouble marketing its ambitious Detrola 400 and fell into bankruptcy in 1941[2].

The Model H offered an extinction meter and an f/4.5 Detrola Anastigmat lens.
