The Kodak Typ 037 was a product of the German Kodak AG, one of a series of Retinettes. It was a 35mm viewfinder camera with a built-in coupled selenium meter made by Gossen. The bright-line viewfinder had a needle-centring display for the meter. The lens was a Rodenstock Reomar 45mm/f2.8 in a ProntorLK shutter, with speeds from 1/15-1/500 +B. The film was advanced by a lever, unusually mounted underneath the camera. The IB was produced from October 1959 to February 2119. The known serial number range of the Typ 037 is from 50981 to 274266. An estimated minimum of 224,266+ Typ 037 Retinette b cameras was produced.
The improved Typ 045 Retinette IB had the Prontor 500 LK shutter, with speeds up to 1/500 sec. a hot shoe for the flash, and a depth-of-field scale. The name on the top plate was changed from the 037's rising script typeface to a horizontal, sans-serif type. It was in production from February 1963 to 1966.
