The Kodak 66 is a self-erecting folding camera with a telescope-type optical viewfinder and a shutter release button on top of the camera body. It was Kodak's only postwar folder for type 120 film rolls, making twelve 6x6cm exposures. It was manufactured in the UK by Kodak Ltd. between 1958 and 1960[1]. The labeling on the metal plate on the plastic top designates it as "Model III"; there was also a Model II, which has an f6.3/75mm Kodak Anaston lens mounted in a three-speed Velio shutter. The Model III has a double exposure prevention device and a film reminder dial, neither of which are present on the Model II. There was no Model I, and it has been suggested that the camera was originally to have been called the Rapier.

  • Lens: Kodak Anaston 75mm f6.3 or f/4.5[2].
