The Medalist features a Kodak Ektar 100mm f3.5 lens, a Kodak Supermatic No. 2 shutter and a split image rangefinder located directly below the viewfinder. With a shift of the eye, the shooter can focus on the subject before framing the subject since both parts are in view when looking through the finder. The Kodak Medalist was built to last as it features a sturdy, high quality and heavy build. Many roll film cameras of the era featured a folding design, but the aluminum body of the Medalist was stronger and constructed to protect the internal mechanisms of the camera. Focusing of the camera is achieved by turning the large ring located in the middle of the lens tube, and there is a fine focus knob located on the front of the camera next to the lens. A great vintage camera find!
