The classic folding style is so called because the concertina style lens can fold back in on itself to collapse down and fold neatly inside its case, which protects the camera lens as well as making it easier to transport and store away. The Six Vintage is made from metal and typically comes in black. Some Kodak Six Vintage cameras also sport a Moroccan grained leatherette.
The classic design of the Kodak Six Vintage was used across a number of Kodak camera models, which adds to this camera's classic aesthetics. These cameras can also be found with their original camera bags. These bags were traditionally made from leather and typically used a buckle strap to secure the camera inside the case.
There is a also a front mounted, metal lever, which is designed to release the bellows necessary to take each picture. The viewfinder itself is in a flip up style, which collapses back down to make this camera more compact and therefore portable. The viewfinder can also be rotated around to suit a portrait or landscape framed photograph.
The classic bellow design is typical of this era and gives this camera style its unique collector's appeal. Some Kodak Six Vintage folding cameras offer multiple apertures, which can be swapped out through a slider located on the bottom of the lens.
