KODAK Suprema 30s Vintage Film Camera In Original Box with Xenar 80mm f:3.5 lens. Marked #1710 (less than 1800 ever made). Has been well cared for stored in original box. Box has some wear/damage appropriate for its age.
The Suprema is a horizontal folding camera made in 1938-9 by Kodak in Germany, for 2½-inch square exposures on 620 film. It has an uncoated 8 cm f/3.5 Schneider Xenar, and a Compur-Rapid shutter with speeds 1 - 1/400 second plus'B', with a linkage to a release button on the top plate.
There are also threaded sockets for a cable release both on the top plate and on the shutter itself. The shutter is cocked manually.
The camera has a simple reverse-Galilean viewfinder. Film is advanced with a simple knurled knob on the right of the top plate. There is a red window, with a sliding cover, on the back; there is also a frame counter on the top (so it seems probable that the red window is used only to set a new roll of film to frame 1). There is a depth of field calculator on the other end of the top plate. McKeown states that less than 1800 copies of the camera were made.
