Kodak Pony 828

The Kodak Pony 828 camera was made from 1949 until 1959.

The Pony had a four-speed 'Flash 200' shutter, an Anaston 51 mm f/4.5 triplet lens, and a fitted leather case. The body was made of bakelite, which was a very common camera body material at that time. While the initial version of this camera used 828 film, the four later versions were adapted to use 135 film. Focus was achieved by estimation and use of a depth-of-field scale on the face of the shutter assembly. A flash attachment could be connected to the shutter by way of an ASA post-style connector. The shutter was manually armed--rather than being automatically cocked when the film was advanced after the previous shot, as in more modern cameras.
