Kodak Retina Automatic II (type 032)

Kodak Retina Automatic II 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-Xenar lens in a Compur-Automat shutter, a step-up from the lens /shutter combination fitted on the Automatic I.

This camera has a coupled selenium exposure meter, but no rangefinder, though three dots are visible in the finder for use in zone-focusing.
