An old Kodak pocket camera
I bought this for £4 at a car boot sale in Dumfries today. It's not a valuable antique, but it's in great condition for its early 1930's vintage, and I hope I'm looking this good when I'm nearly 90 years old. It's strange to think that most of the people seen through its lens are gone now.
In its case
The camera weighs about 600 gm and measures 18 cm x 7 cm x 3 cm. It's bigger and heavier than my Sony A7II.
Its viewfinder can tilt through 90 degrees to accommodate landscape photos too.
Sony A7II and Minolta MD 50 f/2
The shutter has 4 speed modes. An open until shut, a 'bulb' mode, and 1/25 and 1/100 second speeds.
The camera isn't really usable. Although the bellows are intact, they are leaking light at the folds.
