Flash Bantam

The Flash Bantam camera was manufactured by Eastman Kodak Co. from 1947 to 1953. The camera was constructed of metal with leatherette covering similar to the Bantam f4.5 camera. The flash bantam is clearly marked "Flash Bantam on the front and on the side of the camera. It featured a metal pop-up frame view-finder and a strut mechanism for bellows and lens extension. Like the other bantams this reduced the size when not in use. It was capable of capturing eight 28 x 40 mm (approx. 1 1/8 x 1 5/8 inch) exposures on no. 828 "Bantam" film. It was fitted with a fixed focus Kodak Anastigmat Special f4.5 48mm lens and later models with a anastar f4.5 lens. The Flash Bantam camera was originally priced around $4.75.
