The Kodak Retina IIIC is a compact folding 35mm rangefinder from the late 1950s.
This finely crafted camera features a selenium light meter, and uses an exposure value scale to make changes in equivalent settings quick and easy. Also included, and probably the most notable feature on this camera is the 50mm F/2 Schneider Kreuznach Retina Xenar C lens; it’s very impressive and has a lot of character; of course it’s super sharp stopped down a bit.
- Aperture; manually set in one stop increments only from F/2-22, however, the red LV scale can be set in half stops.
- ISO; 5-1300 (DIN 9-33) manually set. Used for setting LV scale only; it doesn’t change the meter reading.
- Shutter and speed; Synchro Compur, has five straight aperture blades and five shutter blades; 10 speed shutter going from 1 second to 1/500 second, plus bulb mode.
~Perfect for a beginner through to professionals!
