Vintage Kodak DUAFLEX II TLR CAMERA 620 Film Kodet Lens

Vintage Kodak DUAFLEX II TLR CAMERA 620 Film Kodet Lens - eBay (item 310105223258 end time Dec-05-08 18:32:03 PST)

This vintage Kodak Duaflex II twin-lens reflex camera has a nice wide viewfinder under the flip-up top. It gives you a bright, clear view of your subject despite scuffs on the front viewfinder lens and minor dust inside. There's a slider on the left with the slot marked "I" at the top end and "B" at the bottom end. The shutter button is on the right. A camera mount is on the bottom.

The front is marked, "Kodak Duaflex II Camera. Kodet Lens." Depress a latch to open the back and find this information:

Can you tell me what year this camera was made?

Jim,
The camera sold long since on eBay for $19.95. Keep watching and maybe you'll find another one.

Me,
I don't know what year the camera was made. According to wikipedia.org on twin lens reflex cameras, Kodak Duaflex IV came out in 1957, so this Duaflex II was before that.

Hope this helps.
