The Limit Vest Pocket camera was the subject of British patent number 12607 of 25 May 1911. The patent was descended from patent number 26,186 that was carried by the Snappa camera but the drawings and specification very closely resemble the Limit. The patent describes a camera in which the lens is mounted in a series of concentric tubes and fitted with a roller blind and plate carrier. A modified form allowed the camera to be operated only when the camera was extended.
It was reviewed in the 1913 BJPA where it was described as 'an extremely simple type of the Vest Pocket camera now so popular'. The camera was available with a single achromatic lens at 35s, a Thornton-Pickard Pantoplast lens at 45s or a Cooke f/6.5 Anastigmat lens at £5 10s for a complete outfit. An enlarging box for Limit negatives was also available.
