Kodak Retina Automatic I (type 038)

Kodak Retina Automatic I 35mm viewfinder camera

This model was manufactured from 1960 to 1963.

I'm no fan of the Automatics, but this camera appears to be well-made, and fills a hole in the display cabinet nicely.

The camera was fitted with a 45mm f/2.8 Retina-Reomar lens in a Prontormat-S shutter. This camera has a coupled selenium exposure meter, but no rangefinder, though three dots are visible in the finder for use in zone-focusing.
