Signet 35

This neat and stylish little 35mm rangefinder camera was manufactured by Eastman Kodak from 1951 to 1958.

The camera body, top and back are all aluminium diecasts, but the base plate is moulded from a hard plastic. It has a Kodak Ektar 44mm f/3.5 lens and a Kodak Synchro 300 shutter, which must be manually cocked for each exposure. The coupled rangefinder has a distinctive triangular patch.
