    How do I flip the lens on a Kodak Tourist 12.5?

    The title says it all. I want to flip the rear element of a Kodak Tourist 12.5, that element being the actual lens, and I can't see how to disassemble it.

    There are no detents or leverage points that I can see from the rear, though the lens is sitting in a threaded setting.

    What can I do and where, if anywhere, can I download a Kodak manual on repairing these simple cameras?

    Cheers, Eli

    Here's a site that tells you how to take the lens off. Thats a start at least.
    Good luck!

    Cheers Chris, I've seen this site but the lenses the article mention are much more complicated than the one on the 12.5 and I wondered if the way in is the same? I'll give a front entry a try and see what's what.
