View Full Version : So I've got these cells...

24-Apr-2008, 11:28
...that came with a camera that I bought, and have since sold. They appear to be front and rear cells from the same lens.

The front cell says "NO. 36 Kodak Anastigmat F-4.5 12 In." and along the bottom, "NO. 36-186" The outside of the ring says Made in USA by Eastman Kodak Co Rochester, NY.

I'm guessing that if I try and mount these in a pvc tube that they will cover 8x10. But what kind of spacing between front and rear? Also, can the rear cell be used by itself? Does anyone know what the focal lengths of each independent front and rear elements are?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there,

#36-130 barrel is 1.770" and the aperture is 0.700" from the rear face. It's a tessar so it can not be used well separately.

Hope it's a help.
