Cine Kodak Model B 16mm Film Camera with Instructions and Leather Case, Hand Crank Antique Film Camera


This is a rare, hand-cranked early Kodak movie camera, which was produced between 1927 and 1931. The early film camera comes with the original leather case and instructions. The camera is in excellent condition and the leather is in very good condition with no tears and only minor scratches. The color is dark.

This 16mm film camera is a leather-covered rectangular cast aluminum box approximately 8.5" by 5" by 3", which should be cranked by hand at two turns per second to achieve the necessary 16 frames per second.

Hand cranking means that a tripod is essential to achieve a steady image. The camera is equipped with a fixed 1-inch (25mm) lens. This is a Kodak Cine camera for 16mm film, 50'or 100' reels. The camera has a claw intermittent mechanism and a single continuous sprocket drive. It is possible to use an interchangeable lens with this camera, but it does not come with another lens. The included lens is a Kodak anastigmat F:25mm f/1.9-16. There is a folding optical frame finder with parallax correction, and a reflecting brilliant finder. There is a backsight for the interchangeable lenses on the side. Included is a rotary footage indicator No. 83458. Eastman Kodak. 1927-1931.

Measurements = 8.75"x5.5" x 2.75" inches
Leather Case - 9" x 6" x 3.5"
The strap has broken off.

We have not tested this camera with film. However, the shutter appears to work and the lens is clear. We are selling this "as-is" a decor/collectible piece only. We will not accept returns on this item unless it arrives in a more damaged condition than exhibited in our photos.
