Kodak Bantam f/4.5

Although similar in shape and size to the f/6.3 model, this camera differs in almost every detail. The metal body is fitted with both a folding viewfinder and a body release for the four speed shutter. The lens on this camera focusses down to 2.5 ft and the aperture is fully adjustable, though I have been notified of another camera that only focusses to 4.5ft, presumably an early example, for which a close-up lens was available. A tripod bush is fitted in the base of the camera, and there is a little button adjacent to the film-wind knob to facilitate film advance without reference to the frame number window.
