In Days Past....

Kodak Duaflex I

Kodak Tri-X 400


For this shot, I used a Duaflex I that my wife gave for my birthday last year, and then scanned the print with an Epson V500 that she gave me this year! She's so very wonderful and thoughtful!


The original Kodak Duaflex (or the Duaflex I). It has a fixed 75mm f/18 Kodet lens. These were made from 1947-1950 and cost $17.25. It uses 620 film (which is essentially 120 film on smaller spools). They were designed to be cheap, lightweight and to be mass marketed. If you have a Duaflex (any model year) and haven't shot any film with it, don't be scared of the "Only Use 620 Film" sticker, you can use ordinary 120 film instead of 620 film. All you have to do is grind down the spools of the 120 film to fit into the camera.
