The Kodak Retina (Model 010) one of the long line of retinas built in Germany by Kodak. Its a well made camera, similar to both the agfa solinette/ regent and the vito II. It has a nifty depth of field guide dial on the bottom, very handy.

Fun with this camera.
This camera just needed a good clean, that's all, everything works fine.
