Camera: Kodak Retina IIc, 35mm rangefinder
Film: Ilford FP4 Plus 125

Kay practising her daily meditation early one morning.

Kodak Retina IIc

I love this camera, really love it. It is easy to focus with what seems to be a sharp lens, has an EV lock (although no light meter), a fold out lens and the advance lever is on the bottom.

  • 35mm rangefinder
  • Retina-Xenon 50mm f/2.8, Shneider-Kreuznach
  • Shutter speeds:Bulb > 1/500s
  • ISO: I’m not sure because the dial is rated using Kodak film types of the time from what I can make out: Pan X, Plus X, Tri X, Kodachr.D, Kodachr.F, Ecktachr.D, Ecktachr.F
  • No light meter
  • No self timer
  • Flash-sync: ? There is a hotshoe but can’t see a flash-sync cable input.
  • Made in Germany by Nagel Camerawerk between 1954 – 1957.
