Kodak VR35 K14 autofocus 35mm film camera (serial 097AC)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Kodak VR35 K14 is a high quality and very interestingly designed 35mm point-and-shoot from the late 1980s. This camera was made by the Japanese company Chinon and is quite close to their Auto 2001 model. It features a fast and very sharp 35mm f2.8 lens and a clever flip-up lens cover that also houses the camera's flash. We're fans of the flash on this model, it's further away from than the lens than is typical for a point-and-shoot which helps produce more flattering results. 

This camera requires an ordinary 9 volt alkaline battery (not included). It alternatively supports an oddball Kodak 9 volt lithium battery but this would be difficult to find (we tested it using a 9 volt battery and it works great).

Condition notes
We tested this camera with film and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed photos. The camera is very good condition overall except for a tiny, purely cosmetic nick underneath the lens and some minor wear from use (see photos).
