|Kodak, Six-16 self erecting type, 616 roll film camera, c1934|
Rochester NY made Kodak, an improved version of the earlier Six-16 by the addition of a self erecting front. A certain amount of caution needs to be exercised when opening, as the lensboard needs to be held upright to prevent jamming. Fitted with one of Kodak's own home produced shutters, rather than the more expensive types - it was aimed at a broader market. Art deco styling makes it rather attractive and it was for this that it was bought for the collection in 1997.
Shutter, No,1 Diodak, speeds T, B, 10, 25, 50 & 100th
