Kodak Retina I with original brown case!
The Kodak Retina I is a 35mm film folding camera, manufactured by Kodak AG Stuttgart, Germany, and produced between 1936-41 and 1945-50.
The camera comes with a Retina-Xenar 50mm f/3.5 (Schneider-Kreuznach) fixed lens.
The Retina I cameras differ from the Retina II and III models in that they use scale focusing, rather than using a rangefinder. The later Retina models are among the archetypal rangefinder cameras, and Kodak introduced the Retinette name for the corresponding viewfinder cameras.
