The Kodak 66 is a self-erecting folding camera with telescope-type optical viewfinder and a shutter release button on top of the camera body. It was Kodak's only post-war folder for type No. 120 film rolls, making twelve 6x6cm exposures. It was manufactured in the UK by Kodak Ltd. between 1958 & 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]
