This is a particularly charming little camera! A late (1953) addition to the already popular Kodak Bantam line, but unlike it's predecessors, the RF did not have the fold out lens house housing or bellows. A chocolate brown Bakelite body with Aluminum accents and lens. Uses 828 film, which is hard to find, but is really just a kind of paper backed 35mm. The camera does come with two spools, if you are interested in trying to engineer a way to respool. Features a Flash 300 shutter and 50mm f/3.9 Kodak Ektanon lens. The RF, by the way, stands for Rangefinder, and it's viewfinder with couple rangefinder is pretty efficient and easy to use.

Condition is very good, camera almost looks new. A bit of wear to the surface coating of a few of the aluminum bits and that's pretty much it. A super pretty little camera. Comes with instruction booklet, although the last page has fallen loose.

Takes 828 film which is hard to find: http://www.filmforclassics.com/printable_order_form.htm

Or you can re spool 35 mm film:
