|Limited: Minor and insubstantial|
The Vernak Company was located in Taunton, Somerset, England and specialized in roll films. Their cameras seems to have served only as a vehicle for the films that they sold under the Vernak name. The cameras appear to be nothing more than re-badged Conway cameras. They certainly had parts that were manufactured by Conway, Coronet and Standard cameras
