The name Pal Jr was also used for the Pax Jr 35 mm camera made by Yamato.

The Pal Jr. "120" is a box camera taking 2¼×3¼-inch (6x9cm) images on 120 film. It was made by Metropolitan Industries in Chicago, USA, in the 1930s. There were both black and silver front plates. The Metropolitan box cameras are all essentially similar, including the Capitol, Crest, Clix, and Rival "120" models.

The Pal Jr. offers Time and Instantaneous exposure, and has Brilliant finders for both portrait and landscape orientation. Some of the cameras had adjustable aperture; the pull-out tab on the side of the black-fronted example pictured selects between f/16 (tab pushed in) and f/22 (pulled out).
