Jump to: navigation, search

The Six-20 'Kodak' Junior is a folding camera for 620 film rolls. It was made from 1933-1940 and has just a brilliant finder, like other contemporary budget cameras. The later improved version with smoother folding mechanism got an octogonal front-plate instead of the original round one.

The cameras have a simple shutter. Originally unnamed, finally it was badged No.0 Kodon or Kodon shutter or simply Kodon, and it offers speeds 1/25, 1/50 and 1/100 sec. plus B and T mode. The budget version has an f11 lens, a Twindar or a Doublet, which is focusable to three distance ranges: 5-8 ft, 8-15ft, and beyond 15ft. The advanced version has an f6.3 or f7.7 Kodak Anastigmat, focusable by means of a complete distance scale from 1.5 to 30 metres (or 5 ft to 100 ft).
