    Hi Scifan,

    I cannot identify the camera. Is it a stllls one? I don't think it's a Leica.

    Hassleblad is a possibility.

    Another clue would help.

    It's a still camera, made in the USA.
    Here's a photo of the other side of the top cover.

    It looks like an Argus but I can't tell which one.

    The Kodak Ektra, 1941 t0 1948.

    Kodak's first and last attempt to create a premium 35mm camera in the U.S. It was better in many ways than the competing cameras of it's time, offering innovative features. Unfortunately it had a very unreliable shutter mechanism.

    A pretty cool camera.

    I actually concentrated on Kodak cameras at first, but for some reason I either did not turn up the Ektra in my search results, or my eyes kept skipping over it. Probably the second, because the search string that turned it up wasn't all the different than all the others. Anyway I drifted off and wasted my time on more exotic brands and search strings until your last clue brought me back to Kodak.


    I'm stepping out for about an hour. If I'm right anyone else who wants to step in feel free. Otherwise I'll post a challenge when I get back. I've a pronounced lack of interesting things laying around, so I'm visiting my storage space for a bit.

    Correct,twerppoet.
    Unlike 90% of the Kodak Ektras out there,mine still works.
    This camera was one of the few 35mm cameras ever manufactured that had interchangeable film magazines.
    Here are some more photos.

    Well unlucky for me, but maybe not for you, I took the wrong keys with me; so there will be no random junk from my storage unit. Instead I dug through my photos and with a little creative cropping I ask:

    What is this?

    Bonus points if you can tell me what the little black and yellow devices are.

    As a person who spent 10 years in the navy,I can tell you that it is a 20 person inflatable life raft.It could be launched manually or by hydrostatic release when the water pressure reached a certain point.
