Part of Heritage Camera Collection
Item consists of a Kodak 35 camera. It was the first 35mm film Kodak still camera produced in the United States. It has a Kodak Flash Diomatic Shutter with four speeds (1/25 to 1/150 sec, plus B and T), and a Kodak Anastigmat f:4.5, 51mm lens. It has a black body with rounded sides, a lens/shutter unit with two film advance wheels and a collapsible optical viewfinder. It was crafted out of Bakelite with metallic panels and inserts. It failed to do well in the marketplace due to high prices and strong competition, particularly from the Argus C series. It originally sold for $40 USD, the equivalent of approximately $600 today.
