History of the brand Kodak New window

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

After the second world war, it was not allowe to import into France of the foreign cameras. Kodak adapted by manufacturing cameras on the own territory. Kodak began with a series of folding cameras 6 X 9 cm equipped with lenses Berthiot or Angénieux 6,3, then of Angénieux 4,5 and Angénieux 3,5. The series equipped with lenses 4,5 had initially a mate chrome cap , then a pale gray plastic cap (Ténite).
Model 36 has the cap on the left. Its lens 4,5 is one 100 mm Angénieux, on a shutter with the 1/250°. The name of the model appears clearly on the small chrome plate located at the top of the cap. The shutter release is on the cap. The black plastic button is used for the aperture and the deployment of the bellows. The handle is made of leather. This camera is tri-format: 6 X 9 cm (8 exposures), 6 X 6 cm (12 exposures) on film 620 and 28 X 40 mm (8 exposures) made of film 828. The body is angular and made of metal.

The plastic of the cap presents sometimes a a little odd disease, resembling moulds, which disappear while rubbing very vigorously with a rag.

This camera was worth 18990 francs in 1953 (Catalog Caron - Amiens). A model 34 could be transformed into model 36, at Photo-Plait, in 1955, for 3055 francs.
