Kodak Junior 620

A basic 6×9 folding roll film camera, which uses 620 film format. The 620 film was introduced by Kodak in 1931 as an alternative to the 120. It is nearly the same film on a slightly different all metal spool.

There are a large variety of Kodak cameras with a model name “Junior”. If you just mention “Kodak Junior” you might mean one type in a group of over a dozen different cameras. This Kodak Junior 620 is one of the first models. The Production begun in 1933 by Contessa Nettel Germany and was terminated in 1939. (In Germany)

The lens is Kodak Anastigmat 1:7,7/10,5cm. The shutter speeds are T, B, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/125. You may notice a self-timer but not a flash contact because there ascended any. The shutter release is as usual on the shutter housing, which also has a cable-release socket.

The camera has a waist level and a frame eye level viewfinder

After WWII production of Kodak Junior, cameras was continued mainly in England and France. No markings about the manufacturer can be found in this version either. It looks older, but you should not knock a dog looking at the fur. Presumably it is only a cheaper version. Differences in details also indicates that their origin is not the same.
