    Mystery Solved! I found one at an antique mall. It is a Kodak Bantam RF. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the right one. Picked it up in near mint condition for $40. Dad also went looking and found a picture of an Olympus 35 SP that replaced the Bantam. Now I got to find one of those.

    If it is a Bantam RF, I don't think the slides are 35mm.

    They are 828 film. Here is a link:

    I'm kicking myself now, because all the early sots of our family were shot by my father using a Bantam RF - see one pictured here:

    They were great little cameras!

    I am really amazed at the quality of the images my dad captured with such a simple camera:



    Thanks for the link to the 828.

    Don't be. Its not the price of equipment that determines the use, its the skill of the user. True with paint brushes or wood tools as well.

    You know, 828 film is just 126 film without the plastic cassette.. I've occasionally thought of using respooled 126 on a bantam.....
