The Kodak Retina 1b (type 018) is an interesting example of the generally amazing Retina lineup. Unlike several of its later brethren, the 018 does not have a rangefinder, nor exposure meter, rather a coupled settings dial keyed to EV numbers from an external meter.

As with all pre war and most post war Retinas, the 018 is solidly built and a joy to operate.

This particular camera is loaded with Ilford Delta 100, pictures will be posted once developed.
