Item consists of a Kodak 35 camera. It was the first 35mm film Kodak still camera produced in the United States. It was imported to Canada by the Canadian Kodak Co., Limited. It has a Kodak Kodex Shutter with three speeds (1/25 to 1.100 plus T and B), and a Kodak Anastigmat f:5.6, 50mm 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. This f/5.6 version of the Kodak 35 was replaced by one with flash synchronization after the war.
