    My first 35mm camera was a Kodak Pony 135-B, made in the 1950-1953 era. Scale focusing (set estimated distance by rotating lens front cell to footage number markers), manual, hand-cocked shutter (accidental double exposures galore! woo-hoo! NOT!), knob wind and knob rewind, collapsible, 51mm f/4.5 Kodak Anaston lens (uggg....verrrry average), leaf shutter with speeds of B, 25,50,100,200. Very spartan. Never was a very good picture-taker, really. Lens was not as good as the Argus C-3 I had subsequently.

    There's a Kodak forum?? really, I never knew.

    I have an M3 and a Kodak instamatic (and a Bullet and a Bantam and an Autographic and a Brownie or two or a few) - make it the Leidak forum. :lol:

    Seeing as I am in Honduras right now I would agree with this. I also have my first digital camera handy for any cigar photos....

    The camera still turns on with the battery that must be more than 10 years old. I think the cable was a serial connection, may see if I can pull any photos off of it as the memory is full. If I remember, the images were pretty poor quality and reminded me of an old Kodak Disk camera I had at one time.

    Dave--the Disc Camera format that Kodak invented used a film negative that was about the same dimensions as today's Apple iPhones use, from what I've read.

    Hey, you look good in that custom suit, G-man. I hope married life is treating you well. Happy New year, 2016 to you and your wife and all your friends and such.

    Gary--guess what! KODAK announced a band-new FILM CAMERA initiative today, January 5, 2016, called the Kodak Super 8 Revival Inititiative. Not kidding--Kodak is going to be making brand new Super 8 movie film, and camera products, plus other stuff. I just heard about this an hour or so ago, and did a new thread post in the Equipment forum, rather than in the Kodak forum.

    The odd thing according to the press releases is that the cameras will use digital viewfinders, and will shoot Super 8 motion picture film, but will also create a digital copy of the footage the camera exposes. Not making this up!

    My post is in the Photography Equipment & Products sub-forum, located here:

    Cheers, looks like they are waking up to more film being used, when Ferrania get their plant up and running they say they can make any film that has been made
