Kodak Pony

Wigwam asked about the Kodak Pony I have sitting on the shelf in my office and wanted to know if I had used it. A friend of mine bought this at a yard sale because he knew that I liked cameras. This came with an old time flash and a box of assorted Blue-Dot bulbs. I loaded the thing up with some fuji color film and shot some pics. The only problem is that I am not the best guesser on distances. This is a zone focus camera that does not have a coupled rangefinder. That means you look at someone/something you want to photograph and guess the distance to them, set the distance, then snap the photo and hope that you were close.

All in all, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of pictures coming out of the camera. The lens is pretty good. While it will not be my go-to camera for everyday use, it is pretty fun to play around with. Click on photos to see larger images.

ps. I have a few rolls of film scanned in and some updates ready to post later tonight. I have been swamped, but will get these up tonight.
