This camera is a design classic, beautiful in form and function.

This camera was made in England (and only available in Britain), by Kodak and was produced from 1963 to 1966. Its modern looks are the creation of famed British designer Kenneth Grange.

Kenneth Grange was one of the great designers of the last century, and is responsible for the Anglepoise Type 75 lamp, Kenwood food mixers, Imperial typewriters, Parker pens, London taxi-cabs and this Kodak camera. Examples of Kenneth Grange designs can be seen in the Design Museum, London.

The vertical design of the camera (for "portrait" shots rather than "landscape") is based on Grange's belief that the camera would be used primarily to take pictures of people. The horizontal bar beneath the lens is the shutter release, and the sculpted finger recesses on the top and bottom are designed to reduce camera shake.

The camera is in excellent condition with just a few light marks from use, and is fully working. It's beautiful to look at would make a great addition to any camera collection.

It uses 127 film which can be purchased from specialist suppliers.

I'm a photographer who uses old cameras like this, you can see some examples in my other Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5104045
