Description

The Gnome Pixie is a box camera with an almost cubic, crinkled black, enamelled metal body. It has a flip-up sports finder and takes twelve 6x6cm images on 620 films. The shutter is basic with only Instant & Bulb; Instant is most likely in the 1/30th to 1/50th range.

The Gnome Pixie Flex was made in Wales, UK. It takes twelve 6x6cm images on a 620 film. It has a leatherette covering on the metal body. It has a pop-up sports viewfinder.

There were several variations; the first model[1] was introduced by Gnome in 1949; in 1951, a leatherette covering and black edges were added. A more luxurious “model II” was also available, with chrome edges.
