The final chapter in Eastman Kodak's American-made folding roll film cameras. The original Tourist series, debuting in 1948, offered various quality levels at different price points. A high-end variant emerged in 1949, featuring a 4-element Anastar lens and Synchro-Rapid 800 shutter. The Tourist II series succeeded the original in May 1951, showcasing a redesigned top cover and an updated viewfinder. While the redesigned cover hinted at a potential integrated rangefinder (never realized), the Tourist II line added a higher-end model with a Synchro 400 shutter. Both lines shared essentially identical specifications, with production ceasing in July 1958.
