Kodak Instamatic 500

Certainly the most sophisticated and desirable of the European viewfinder Instamatics. A Schneider lens combined with a match-the-needle exposure setting in the viewfinder, autosensing of the film speed, a collapsable lens mount, coaxial flash socket AND hot-shoe makes this a very useable camera by almost any standard. The rugged metal casework makes this a slightly heavy but very robust example of Kodak AG production, called by some the "Instamatic Retina". The filter thread is even the "Retina-size" 29.5mm.

David Francis is currently researching the manufactured quantities of this model. If you could forward him your serial number, (in front of the hot-shoe), it would be most helpful.
