Kodak Retina I (Type 148)

The collection of Retinas continues to grow. This example was picked up at Central Camera in Chicago on my first trip to that photogenic city. As usual, the build quality is exceptional. The Type 148 feels very similar to the Type 126 in my hands but feels slightly heavier.

More details will be forthcoming once I shoot a roll through this beauty.
