REVIEW: Kodak Retinette 1B
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2013-09-13
Lens: Rodenstock Reomar 45mm f/2.8
Closest Focus: 1m (3.3ft)
Aperture: f/2.8 - f/22
Shutter: 1/500 to 1/15 + B (Bulb)
Leaf shutter from Pronto-LK
Light meter: Yes, coupled Selenium cell (match needle in the viewfinder)
Flash: Yes, PC sync connection
Takes 135 film
24×36 mm negative size.
One that works very well and its a little bigger then most cameras of this type hade around the same time.
Which I would call about medium size today and it has good brighness.
Match needle for the light meter.
Great build quality, solid as a rock and very nice feel to it.
Hard not to like a beautiful camera like this!
And it's a great one at most point like build quality and feel.
Image quality is also nice and sharp.
Renders very well with good contrast, bokeh and flare.
You do however have some corner softness and it gets a little soft wide open.
A camera that looks great in a camera collection and can also be just as fun to use.
Build quality, look and feel
Image quality, renders, bokeh and flare
Corner softness at bigger apertures
