Kodak Retina III C

1936-1938. The Retina cameras were made in Germany for Kodak from 1934 to 1969. The factory stopped making cameras from 1941 to 1945 when it was converted to making time fuses for 88mm anti-aircraft ammunition.

The Retina (a folding camera) opened up photography to the general public because of its low price and novel 35mm Daylight Loading Cartridge film. It was the first camera to use 35mm film.
