Kodak Retina Ib (type 018) for sale
The Retina Ib is one of the less-common Retina models, much like the Retina IIc or IIIc in construction, but instead of the rangefinder, the Retina Ib has simple viewfinder, and lacks the exposure meter, and the interchangeable lens facility of its big brothers.The camera is easy to use, with the base-mounted film advance lever, and the 50mm f/2.8 Schneider Retina-Xenar lens is capable of producing great results.The shutter is a Synchro-Compur with speeds from 1 to 1/500th second, it is synchronised for both bulb and electronic flash, and it has a built-in self-timer.I have completely serviced this camera it so it is all working correctly, the lens is clean, and the camera is ready for immediate use.
Not the smartest example I've ever seen, but the camera works just as it should and will make a great user. For sale with lower half of the case at NZ$150.00, airmail postage to the North America or Europe will cost NZ$35.00.
