Kodak Explorer all-weather camera

David M , Dec 03, 2005; 02:40 p.m.

I just picked this camera up in a thrift store for $6. I looked it up on Kodak's site and found no mention of it. Does anyone know anything about it?. Its made in Japan and has a 35mmF5.6 lens. Its a really neat looking camera with industrial looking switches and knobs. It looks a bit like an underwater camera. The back of the camera says "Motordrive Shock-resistant enclosure class 7 all-weather 35mm camera"

A Kodak rep. gave me one back in the mid eighties, and it was our family camera for years, until my son plucked out a piece in the back that held the film down. It may still work, but I haven't tried it since. It was too cool looking to throw away. It collects dust on my bookcase. I never kept the box or papers. While it is not an underwater camera, I did take it with me tubing down Ichitucknee Springs.

I picked one up today and fixed the film pressure plate. Looks like a neat camera, were there instructions about vaselene on the back door seal? I am a camera collector, I've never seen this model before!
