Kodak Retina I type 126 for sale

Retina I (type 126) for sale

The type 126 was the first of the Retina I cameras with a chrome top cover, made in 1936 and 1937. This one has an uncoated Kodak Anastigmat Ektar 5cm f/3.5 lens in a non-flash synched Compur-Rapid shutter with speeds from 1 to 1/500th second, and B & T settings.

Retina I (type 010) for sale

This one was made for the export market, as such it has the focus scale marked in feet, and the depth-of-field calculator on the camera base is in English.

I would describe this one as being in 'user' condition, it's not a particularly pretty example because the alloy body edges show corrosion staining. Some pitting to the chrome of the film advance knob.
