A collection of the Kodak section of my ongoing vintage camera collection

Kodak No.2 Brownie Model F (USA) Green (1924 Vintage camera)

Bought this at a garage sale for the princely sum of $5. Still had a roll of film in it.

It's a typical box camera, this one was an upgrade to the previous models. The upgrade was a finer leatherette finish and an aluminium box as opposed to a cardboard one.

Kodak Baby Brownie Special (1938 Vintage Camera)

Found this little fella today. A cute Kodak Baby Brownie Special.

Introduced in 1938 as a 25 cent upgrade to the original Baby Brownie. The extra cash got you an optical viewfinder.

It's a bakelite body, around 10cm (4in) wide and uses 127 FIlm.

Kinda cute.

Kodak Brownie Hawkeye (1950s Vintage Camera)

Another addition to my vintage camera collection. This is the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera. Dating back between 1949 and 1961 this is the original design as a flash model was introduced later.

It takes 620 film but I'm sure there is a way to modify a 35mm to work on it.

Kodak Retinette 1B (1963 Vintage Camera)

During a photographer's life there comes a point when they have the desire to seek out that which has gone before.

So I purchased a beautiful Kodak Retinette 1B in full working order. It takes a 35mm film and was produced during the 60's.

The best thing about vintage cameras is that they are void of all of the digital niceties; Auto-focus, Auto-WB, Auto-everything. This forces the photographer to think about everything more closely.

I also like having to wait till the film has completed before we see the end result.

Kodak Instamatic 300 (1963 Vintage Camera)

This iconic looking camera is the Kodak instamatic 300.

Kinda sad how the Kodak brand has gone into liquidation recently, these types of camera were the bread and butter of the company and today's market has no need for small compact cameras with the ever growing popularity of the smart phone.

Kodak Worlds Fair Starflash (1964 Vintage Camera)

This was a cool find, although missing a bulb, it looks to be in good order.

This is a souvenir camera from the Kodak Company for the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair.

Kodak Instamatic 804 (1965 Vintage Camera)

Another cool vintage camera in my collection. This adaptation of the instamatic range came with a cool looking wrap around hard case and features variable shutter speeds and a pull chord to advance the film.

Kodak Instamatic 104 (1960's Vintage Camera)

So today I was wandering round a huge antiques mall and found numerous vintage cameras.

The unique vintage style of this caught my eye and I love the huge leather bag that came with it.

I had to dig out some leaked batteries out of it and I think the shutter leaver has an issue which should be fixable.

Kodak Instamatic X (1970's Vintage Camera)

Digging around in second hand shops can sometimes bring up some surprising finds.

"One man's muck is another man's brass" is a saying I love remembering.

This is the Kodak Instamatic X and appears to be in perfect working order although I haven't yet run a roll of film through it.

I may attempt to convert a roll of 35mm to be used in a 126 cartridge.
