Kodak Bantam 5,6

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

Bantam 5,6 is the fourth member of the family of Bantam with bellows. The principal characters are the same ones: body made of bakelite or plastic in the shape of cake of soap, or metal for the most recent Flash Bantam, lens supported by a rectangular table, itself at the end of small bellows, scissors in X. The finder is on large side of the body, but it can be fixed or folding.
With the liking of the generations, the lens improved.

There are other cameras bearing the name of Bantam (of the name of film), but they are not with bellows.
