Kodak Retina II (type 142)

Kodak Retina II type 142

Manufactured from 1937 to 1939. This model was Kodak's second Retina II model, the earlier and quite rare type 122 was a very similar camera, except it was fitted with a short film advance lever.

Apparently the film advance proved unreliable, and this model with the simpler knob advance replaced it.

The type 142 Retina II was available with either a Retina-Xenon f/2 like this one, Retina-Xenon f/2.8, or a Kodak Ektar f/3.5 lens, like the one below.

In each case a Compur-Rapid shutter was fitted.
