Vintage Kodak Retina II Type 011 folding camera w/ Kodak Ektar 47mm f/2 lens. Camera serial number: 109565. Camera lens: Kodak Ektar 47mm f/2.0. Lens serial number: EO5630. The Kodak Retina line of cameras were produced with different kinds of lenses of differing quality. These include a Rodenstock Heligon lens, a Schneider Xenon lens, and the Kodak Ektar lens (the one on this camera). With all other things being equal, the cameras with an Ektar lens have higher value. This folding camera allows the lens to be withdrawn into the camera body and protected by a permanent hard lens cover with the lens is closed. The camera includes the Compur-Rapid lens system that has B-1/500th of a second shutter speeds, and f-stops of 2.0-16. The Kodak Retina II employs a range-finder focusing mechanism. IMPORTANT NOTE: The focusing mechanism must be adjusted to the fully retracted (infinite) setting before the cover will close. The lens can then be contracted by pressing small metal buttons at the top and bottom of the lens housing. When you look at the base of the camera, you will see two metal dials. These constitute a computer that allows the user to quickly determine the correct distance and f-stop settings for shooting. The camera is in excellent condition. The outer housing shows minimal signs of wear. The interior shows some abrasions on either side of the back of the lens. Apparently, some edges of the original metal housing must have been too rough, and a previous owner must have filed it down to eliminate any scratches to film as passes over. The range-finder, f-stop adjustment, shutter release, film advance and rewind have all been tested and are in working order. I learned to shoot in a camera much like this one about 40 years ago, and I can tell you that if you are interested in getting into film photography, this would be a great starter camera. Or, if you are a camera aficionado and are looking for a nice addition to your collection, look no farther.
