Kodak 3,5 modele 42

This Kodak 3.5 is a variation of the model 42. It differs by its shutter block:

• a single sync  connection
• selecting magnesium lamp or electronic flash is done by moving a cursor on the X mark (red: Electronic flash), or F (white: magnesic lamps with a 5 milliseconds delay) or M (yellow: magnesic lamps with a 20 milliseconds delay)
• the self timer lever is on the left side, at the bottom
• the diaphragm opening control is at the top of the block
• KODAK brand is engraved under the lens

The back is also different; the counter windows are not protected by an outer cover but a red lever, located on the inside, is used to mask the unused window according to the format. The other features are identical.
