Nagel-Werke in Germany introduced this in 1928 as the Nagel 33, then the Recomar 33. Kodak bought the company in 1932 and the Recomar was rebadged as a Kodak.

There are two versions of the Recomar; the 18 is similar but a smaller format (6-½ x 9cm).

The cameras were manufactured until 1939, when World War II shut down production.

Mine has a Kalart rangefinder, which was a non-standard accessory.
