Welcome to Chris Sherlock's Kodak Retina and Retinette camera pages
The Kodak Retina family of fine 35mm cameras began life with the type 117 Retina camera,
introduced in 1934 with Kodak's new daylight loading cassettes of 35mm film.
The Retina cameras were manufactured at Kodak A.G. in what had previously been the Dr. August Nagel Camerawerk factory in Stuttgart. The business had been purchased by Kodak in 1931.
A large number of models of the Retina, and later, the Retinette cameras were made right up until 1969.
One day I hope to have an example of them all, but my collection is work in progress at the moment, as I suspect it always will be.
