Mycro Camera Co., Inc.

Mycro Camera Co., Inc. was a distributor based in New York in the late 1940s and early 1950s, certainly specialized in the import of Japanese subminiature cameras. It was the exclusive distributor of the Myracle made by Sugaya, and its name appears on most camera bodies, cases and boxes. The company's name has also been observed on the original box of some Mycro I cameras, and it was perhaps the importer of the Mycro camera line into the United States as well.[1]

Mycro Camera Co., Ltd.

Mycro Camera Co., Ltd. was a Japanese camera maker based in Tokyo, Setagaya in the mid-1950s.[2] Its name is engraved on the late Mycro IIIA made c.1954 and appears in the camera's English user manual.[3] It was perhaps the successor of Akita Seisakusho, and perhaps made others models of the Mycro series in the postwar period.
