    Worked quite well back in the day - likely do now as well! Got one around somewhere.
     
  7. Kodak also made paper base exposure calculatr, which is lower quality.

    The Kodak exposure calculator on the market are all paper calculators

    The ivory Kodak exposure calculater is hard to find, it is a collector item

  8. There was a similar exposure calculator made by Johnson
     
  9. These things were bought by peasants like myself who couldn't afford proper exposure meters, let alone cameras with them built in. I had one (still have?) but I could never get the hang of it.

  14. Kodak exposure calculator is hard to find on e mart
    Johnson standard exposure calculator is still available
    IMO, Johnson calculator is easier to use
     
  15. Johnson Standard Exposure Calculator does not
    cover INTERIOR
    KODAK EXPOSURE CALCULATOR covers interior
    Kodak calculator is superior
