Irwin Corporation was a camera maker based in New York, America. They were famous for making a number of cameras shaped like a sardine can. These included the Kandor, Kandor Jr, Kandor Komet and the Lark. Some of the originals may actually have been made of sardine cans. They made a number of Pseudo TLRs including the Dual Reflex, Irwin Reflex and the Super-Tri-Reflex. They also made 16mm movie cameras branded the "Irwin Imperial.
