Kodak Auxiliary Rangefinder

Kodak Aux Rangefinder


I really wanted to like this little all-metal rangefinder by Eastman Kodak. Not only is it lightweight and classically styled, it mounts upright in the shoe, avoiding the occasional issue that the lateral rangefinders have of bumping into knobs when you try to mount them.

It even has the distance scale in the rangefinder window (thanks everyone for pointing this out! duh) so you don’t have to look in two places for focus and distance. However, the split screen is harder to use than the usual picture-in-picture style, and the distance scale is only available when looking at a certain angle, so it was not as easy to use as I had hoped. I still prefer the solid Telex style.
