Kodak Retina I (Type 010) 1946-1949
Retina was the brand-name of a long-running series of German-built Kodak 35mm cameras, produced from 1934 until 1969. Kodak Retina cameras were manufactured in Stuttgart-Wangen by the Kodak AG Dr. Nagel Werk which Kodak had acquired in December 1931.
The Retina line included a variety of folding and non-folding models, including the Retina Reflex single lens reflex camera. Retina cameras were noted for their compact size, high quality, and low cost compared to competitors. These cameras retain a strong following today, of both photographers and collectors.
This beautiful example of a Kodak Retina I 010 was made After WW2, production started again in November 1945. It was produced for the U.S. military PX system until 1948 and after the end of Military Government control, Type 010 was exported to the USA and was also sold in Germany. Production of Type 010 continued until August of 1949.
