Kershaw Eight-20 Penguin (Kershaw-Soho)
This charming Kershaw Eight-20 Penguin vertical folding camera with a metal camera body is in good shape. The covering is fully intact, except for the strap (see pictures). The bellows are completely without tears. The lens is scratch free. It does have a lot of dust inside.
The diaphragm operates, but it is doubtful whether it is still accurate. Focuses, although a little heavy. The folding mechanism works, but it does not shut off neatly as it should when closed. I think someone has forgotten to put it to ‘infinity’ before closing it. That is needed (says so on the shutter).
Film: 120 roll film. Format: 6x8cm. Introduced 1946.
