The Kodak Bantam RF was produced from 1954 to 1957 and was designed by Kodak's Arthur H Crapsey. It was made of brown plastic Bakelite, aluminum and other metal. It made 28×40mm exposures on Kodak's type No. 828 special 35mm film and was equipped with a non-self-cocking Flash 300 shutter and 50mm f/3.9 Kodak Ektanon lens. The Bantam's 3 element lens contains thorium oxide, and is in fact mildly radioactive like many of Kodak's more upscale offerings of the 1950's but is not harmful. It also had an optical viewfinder with superimposed coupled rangefinder.
