This was a pretty neat vintage find. We knew it was a camera of some sort, but we didn’t know any specifics about it. We got it for $17.50.
It turns out that this is a movie camera from the 1920’s. It is called the Cine Kodak Model B and was made by the Eastman Company. We had the camera, the original case, a box of Ednalite filter adapters, and some slips of paper with information on them.
The condition wasn’t fantastic. The case was worn and the strap was only attached on one end. The camera looked fine, but we had no way of testing it. If someone wanted this, they’d definitely be taking a chance.
Well, it turns out that someone was willing to take that chance! Or maybe they even knew how to repair it if it turned out that it didn’t work. Either way, in the end, we pulled in $86.00 for this awesome find. That was a well invested $17.50!
