Kodak Retinette IIB (type 031)
The Retinette IIB was manufactured from 1958 to 1959. This model is similar to the Retinette II type 026, but has a built-in uncoupled meter like that of the Retina IIIC.The frame counter is similar to the ones fitted to Retina cameras of the time, and the camera uses a shutter-cocking rack of similar type to the Retina IIIc family.The lens is a Reomar 45mm f/2.8 set in a Compur-Rapid light value shutter. The depth-of-field indicators are like those of the Retinette IIThis would have to be my favourite Retinette model.
