Sears offered the Tower Automatic 127 camera circa 1961. This bizarrely-styled camera was actually made by United States Camera and also sold by them as the USC Tri-Matic Electric Eye 127. It exposes 4×4 images on 127 film. In addition to electric-eye autoexposure for daylight shots, the camera couples the aperture to the scale focusing distance ring for automatic flash exposure.
