The Kodak Six-16 and Six-20 are folding cameras of the same design [1] that take size 616 and 620 rollfilm, respectively. Their art deco design touches are their distinguishing feature.

The Six-16 cost $40 when new. It uses a 126mm f/6/3 Kodak Anastigmat lens. It uses the No. 1 Diodak shutter, which fires at 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, and 1/100 sec, plus T and B.

The Six-20 cost $38 when new. It packs a 100mm f/6.3 Kodak Anastigmat lens. It uses the Kodon shutter, which fires at 1/25, 1/50, and 1/100 sec, plus T and B.

Both cameras sport two viewfinders. The first is a small “brilliant” type attached to the lens assembly that swivels to frame portrait and landscape photos. The second is a gunsight type attached to the camera body.




Notes

  1. The Six-16 with the f/4.5 Kodak Anastigmat lens was a folding model, the others in both sizes were self-erecting.
