Kodak Tourist II Camera

The Tourist II was a popular camera manufactured by Kodak between the years 1951 and 1958. It had a grey top made of bakelite on which a simple viewfinder was secured at eye-level. Owing to its size of about 1/4th of an inch across, the viewfinder was not very easy to use. In spite of this however it was quite precise. The camera used a 620 film and made eight frames of 6 X 9 cms.

The camera came with various lens options. The best lens on offer was the Anastar lens which came at a price of $95. The most affordable lens was the Kodet and a camera equipped with the lens was priced at $24. The $95 Tourist camera with the Anastar lens was among the most premium products that Kodak had to offer at that time.

The camera had a film advance button made of aluminum, which was again a little difficult to use due to its length. It is however, broad enough in width. The bellows can be extended by pressing a little silver button on the front of the camera. The action opens a door, which can be pulled to lock the bellows. The shutter at the front of the bellows is controlled by a button on the door. These features make it handy to point and shoot using the camera.

The Kodon shutter has a shutter speed of 1/50th of a second . The film doors on the Tourist II are equipped with a hinge and latch. Thus the door can be opened in both directions. The doors can be taken out completely and adapter kits can be fitted in their place.
