Kodak Petite

The Kodak Petite, manufactured between 1929 and 1934 (originally marketed to women) is a fun, simple shooter that will bring much needed color to any collection.

The controls and features are straightforward, and the rotary aperture is a neat feature. No f-numbers are given. Instead the camera’s manual indicates the following: No. 1 – For all ordinary outdoor pictures; No. 2  – For unusually brightly lit subjects; No. 3 – For distant scenes; No. 4 –  for interior time exposures.

This particular example is in very good condition, but does not have the original bellows.
