The Unimatic II was made in Italy by Bencini, and sold under their own name, as the Comet Unimatic 800 and by others such as Boots as the Unimatic - somewhere around 1970. It is a simple 126 cartridge camera, with no adjustments, but with an unusual advance mechanism- the film is wound by pushing the shutter-release button sideways.

The body is mostly plastic, with a metal back door. Some of the plastic is finished in a very easily-scratched silvering.

Flash is provided by a flashcube socket, for which there are two AA batteries inserted into the base.
