Six-16 Kodak (Improved Model)

The improved model of the Six-16 incorporated a small moveable dial below the lens. When the dial is moved, various f-stops are adjusted and displayed. Depending on lighting conditions (“Gray, Clear or Brilliant”) the appropriate shutter speed is indicated for a correct exposure. The anastigmat lens provided higher contrast photographs and one was able to focus by manually rotating the front lens element after estimating the distance from camera to subject. Other refinements included a faster lens (f 6.3) and a 1/10 sec. slow shutter speed. The art deco trim was extended to include black enamel coated struts.
