The Corsair I and Corsair II were budget-priced, bakelite-bodied cameras sold by Universal (Univex) in the years before WWII. Both were scale focusing models with an extinction meter built into the top housing. The Corsair I used 35mm film sold in Universal's proprietary roll format; while the Corsair II used standard 35mm cartridges[1] After WWII, the molds for the Corsair cameras were adapted for Universal's Buccaneer model, which added a rangefinder.
