The Coronet Camera Company was founded by Frederick W. Pettifer around 1926 and initially based at a converted private house at 48 Great Hampton Street, Aston, Birmingham, UK. By 1932 they had relocated to premises at 308-310 Summer Lane, Aston, Birmingham, UK. Coronet specialised in low price simple still picture cameras, mostly made of plastic, moulded by a local Birmingham firm of Edwin Elliott, with lenses made by the British Optical Lens Co. another local business.
In 1932 they launched a very low price simple 9.5mm cine projector and cine camera. By 1937 both the cine camera and projector had been upgraded to model B cine camera and Mk 11 projector.
