This is a Kodak Six-16 Folding Camera. One of many in a long line of Kodak history. Made in the 1930s. This camera is cool and simple. It has a nice solid feel, and everything seems to function smoothly. The bellows were crunched in a weird way - so they don't have their nice accordian look. Perhaps you would want to use this for a steampunk art project? This would make a great deco item in an office or den.

Cosmetics - Good. Pretty clean, no dents, minimal wear.
Lens - Looks fungus and scratch-free. Could use a dusting.
Shutter - Fires well.
Bellows - do not into their crease lines. But fold up just the same.
Mechanics - Pops open, folds up easily.
Swiveling brilliant viewfinder

Shutter speeds are Time or Bulb, 1/10 to 1/100s
Lens -128mm Anastagmat f6.3
Measures 7"L x 1.25"w x 3.25"h when closed.

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
