The Kodak Pony 135 Model C is a classic mechanical 35mm camera from the 1950s. It features a nice Kodak Anaston 44mm f3.5 lens. 

The Pony 135 focuses by scale and is a meterless design. You can either use the 'Sunny 16 Rule' or an external lightmeter (or a smartphone app) to get the correct exposure.

This is a fairly common camera but is much more rarely found in such good working condition.

Condition notes
This camera is in very good working condition. All shutter speeds are working well and we calibrated the focus scale to match the film plane. The cosmetic condition is overall very good for its age with some wear to the body's silkscreen. When observed under very bright light the lens has some small specks visible but we tested it with an autocollimator and this doesn't seem to affect its very good optical performance.
