From the beginning there were three versions of the B-C flash gun. A short shoe version for the Minox A, a long shoe with cut out for the Minox B's meter and a cold shoe version, Model U (universal) with synchronization cable to work with any camera with an accessory shoe. A two tone grey plastic U version was sold by EMO the company owned by Arthur Seibert who also invented the  Emoskop.
