A much loved camera in full working order. Manufactured between 1951 and 1954 and extensively used by my late father and myself, so shows of usage on some of the chrome edges. However, it has been protected by a genuine Kodak Field Case manufactured in Rochester NY, USA which is included in the sale. Some of the stitching on the case is worn and there are signs of wear on the edges and metal fixings. Please see the pictures. The interior of this mechanical camera is in very good condition and has a label stating that the sole importer into Canada is Canadian Kodak Co Ltd, though my understanding is that the camera was acquired in the UK. The built-in folding f2 50mm Retina-Xenon lens operates between f2 – f16, with shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/500th as well as a manual hold “B” stop and focal length is from 3.5feet to infinity. It has the model’s standard features including a flash mount, film indicator, mechanical film winder and shutter release button as well as a socket for a wire shutter release on the top. It has the lens opening button on the base, access for which is available whilst remaining in the case. Price includes UK 1st class postage.
