Camera of Week 6 – Kodak Instamatic Reflex
Hello everyone, hope you had great X-mas holidays. Today random page choose Kodak Instamatic Reflex. Knowing Kodak`s financial woes, maybe next time “Randomer” chooses something from Kodak, company will be no more or much different as it is today.
So this camera was made in Germany from 1968 till 1974. Used 126 film cartridge and was top of line model for Instamatic range of cameras. Camera itself is one few 126 SLR models out there, it used Aperture priority metering, interchangeable lenses and flashcubes for flash photography. Shutter speeds from 20s- 1/500s. Flash sync at 1/30s. Used Kodak retina lens mount so it had many different lenses available, but “kit” lenses included Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 45mm/f2.8 or Xenon 50mm/f1.9. Camera available in chrome or black finishing.
