KODAK STERLING 2, CAMERA, 1955
Similar in style to the Kodak Junior I and II, this camera is slightly more sophisticated with its front-cell focusing lens in a four speed shutter with fully adjustable iris.
Add a memory or information about this object
- I had a Junior 2, the slightly simpler version of this camera. It took some good pictures and I still have some. But it looked a bit "uncool" for me (at 11 years old) with the bellows etc. ! I really wanted a 35 mm. like my Dad. All these "Roll-Film" cameras used films with a yellow paper backing with numbers on it. When you wound the film on you would watch the numbers in a red window on the camera back. There was nothing to stop you exposing the same frame twice if you forgot to wind it. When finished you wound the film on to the end and wrapped the paper around it. More than half my early pictures were "dud" but I was proud of the good ones.
