KODAK MEDALIST II - 1946-1953
Truly a brute of a camera. And as far as I'm concerned, truly a classic. There are no shortcuts here.




The 100mm Ektar is a wonderful lens. Resolute and contrasty. It ranks with the best.

Prices for used Medalists are comparatively low. The fact that the Medalist takes 620 film most likely accounts for that.
Re-spooling 120 onto a 620 spool is not difficult.



The camera case weighs more than some digital cameras. It'll outlast them too, I'd bet.

If you hook the Medalist II up to a sturdy shoulder strap and place it under your coat, you'll be carrying a concealed weapon.
Perfect for an alley fight.
