Retina S2
 
Hi everybody.

I have a last-of-the-line Retina S2 (effectively a 35mm Instamatic) which I know takes a lens hood and filters but I do not know the dimensions for the fitting, even the manual does not state what filter measurement is required. I'd be grateful for any enlightenment from the membership here. To the eye the fitting looks 32mm screw or thereabouts.

Have a look here: https://www.cameramanuals.org/kodak_..._retina_s1.pdf


It is the manual for the S1 but i suspect it is the same lens thread size (32mm) .

Yes the S2 is the S1 but with a Selenium meter. This S1 manual is far more informative than the S2 I have so thanks a lot for bringing it to my attention. 32mm it is!

This is the only Kodak I own and it's in virtually mint condition. Very rare to find these days. My other cameras are Rollei, Agfa, Voigtlander, Zeiss Ikon, Mastra (about 30 in total). All working and I hope to get round to running film through them all.
