Description

This model was manufactured between 1966 and 1969. It is about the last model of Retina. It is distinguished from S1 by its electric eye which regulates the exposure. The control of this exposure is ensured by the displacement of a needle in the finder.
Its lens is Reomar 2,8/45 mm with three lenses. This camera has four speeds of 1/30 to 1/250 secondes + B. The setting of the diaphragm is coupled with the focusing.
Although it carries a clip , we find also a connector for flashcube.

Review

The Kodak Retina S2 is a simple camera with a few nice features. Its great lens, light meter, and easy film loading make it quirky but fun to use. And the little kid in me likes the shiny parts.
