WORKING CAMERA---BASIC CAMERA THAT MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES USED
620 FILM IS AVAILABLE---OTHER VINTAGE CAMERA AVAILABLE---GREAT DISPLAY

WORKS-- This piece of history is not rare and not worth that much. It is an original version made from 1947 to 1950. This was a low cost camera made for people who did not want to learn about exposures and shutter speeds...everything back then was done manually.
The body is made of aluminum alloy and bakelite. The fixed focus lens has to be more than 5 ft from a subject to be in focus. It is a 75mm Kodet lens with an aperture of f/15. These single element lenses were cheap and helped to keep the cost down for the camera.

The only “shutter speed” options are I for instant, around 1/30th of a second, and B for bulb. The shutter button is a plunger type, so you have to make sure you hold the camera steady with one hand while you depress the button.

It can be paired to synch with a Kodak Duaflex Flasholder that uses SM bulbs when on the Instant setting. No. 5 bulbs can be used if you set the camera on Bulb.

Unlike a lot of these simple cameras that I have shot with, it actually has a tripod mount on the bottom. That comes in handy for the slow shutter speed.
