This is the only thing I could find. Too bad it ended a few days ago.

Look at Ricoh models for a potential match, since a bunch of other Sears cameras were Ricoh re-brands. And, Ricoh was big on the "Color Corrected" label.


EDIT: Whoops, the "Color Corrected" label was a Petri thing.

I think Petri is correct. Looks very similar to the Petri EF35. Possibly lightly restyled for Sears. It should be noted that by the late 70s, Petri was rebranding a lot of Cosina products, but I haven't been able to find any camera that comes closer than the EF35.

Well, the lens styling certainly is a match, with the same cds and asa port arrangement.
