1952 Vintage Duaflex ll by Eastman Kodak Co
This 1952 vintage Kodak Duaflex camera is about as retro as you can get. Comes inside a great leather case that has very little wear. The camera is in excellent vintage condition.
I should point out right away that there were quite a few variations of the Duaflex and Duaflex II, both here and in the UK, and not all models had a focusing taking lens.
This is as close to a top-of-the-line model as you’ll see for this camera, with not only 3 aperture choices and a focusing taking lens, but a double-exposure prevention button.

The Kodak Duaflex is a 620 roll film pseudo TLR made by Kodak in the US and UK. The original versions were available from December 1947 – September 1950 in the US, and 1949-1955 in the UK; the Duaflex IV was finally discontinued in the US in March 1960. The various Duaflexes had aluminum alloy bodies and were available with either a simple fixed focus 75mm f/15 Kodet lens, or with a 72mm f/8 Kodar triplet lens in a front-element focusing (to 3.5 ft.) mount. The Kodar lens had Waterhouse stops of f/8, 11, and 16. The shutter had speeds of “I” and “B”, and was synched for use with a Kodalite Flash-holder.
