History Of Use
The Ansco Studio Outfit #5 camera is a relatively obscure device, with little research information available. The camera first makes appearances in catalogues around 1930 and is seen until the 1940s. The camera is built with cherry, mahogany, and basswood. What made this camera and stand ideal for studio photographers was the construction of the camera and stand that allowed all adjustments from the focusing point. The stand permitted tilting from 10 degrees upward to 25 degrees downward, and height adjustment from 17 inches to 34 ½ inches from the floor. The camera also features a long focal range from 7 ½ inches to 42 inches, made possible by an extra inside lens board. Additionally, the camera has a sliding carriage with automatically locking positions, to permit “splitting” negatives without refocusing. Missing from our camera is the built in holder on the front for reversible backs and negative divider masks, as well as the container on the side that would hold film and plates.

History Of Use
The pocket Kodak No.1 series II was a folding film camera made from 1922 to 1931. It used autographic roll film that was produced by Eastman Kodak between 1914 and 1934. All Pocket Kodak cameras had the autographic feature. The negative size was 6×9 cm or 2 1/4×3 1/4 inch. It had a Kodak anastigmat 108/7, 7 lens, which was not a very fast lens. The Diomatic No. 0 shutter had six settings: B, T, 1/10, 1/50, 1/100, and 1/200s. It even had select aperture and lighting conditions: dull, gray, clear or brilliant. To benefit from the camera’s autographic feature, a stylus with an Art Deco look was included. The stylus for this example has been lost. On the back of the camera was the windows used for frame counting. On this camera, a little advice was imprinted in the black leather: use film No A116.

Part B is a soft leather case. It is dark grey leather with a yellow tinge and a snap clasp. Part C is a small instructional booklet with a gold cover titled "Picture Taking with the Kodak Petite" Parts D & E are a cardboard box. It is yellow with green geometric shapes and says "KODAK Petite" on one side.
History Of Use
The Kodak Petite was made from 1929 to 1933. It was a Vest Pocket Kodak Model B which used 127 film and came in five colors including blue, green, gray, lavender, and old rose with matching coloured bellows. Several special versions were also made with special art-deco patterns on the front door including the step-pattern and diamond-door versions. A Kodak advertisement appearing in Ladies’ Home Journal’s April 1930 issue described the camera as: Gay as seventeen…feminine as Eve…smart as an Easter hat…is this exquisite Eastman creation. Paris inspired, it reflects the mode of spring. Aptly named, Kodak Petite is a lovely little camera no larger than your hand. Like all members of the famed Kodak family, it takes wonderful pictures…clean-cut, sparkling. And, so easily…you simply press a lever. On Easter, when you stroll about in a world that’s fresh from Fashion’s easel, take this dainty camera with you. You’ll not only add some remarkably good snapshots to your album, but you’ll add a bit of subtle flattery to your costume. Kodak’s Petite, with neatly patterned cases to match, come in five alluring colors- a sparkling green, a warm gray, a delicate lavender, a robin’s egg blue, and a rich old rose. Picture size is 13/8 × 2½”. Price, with case to match, $7.50. See Kodak Petite at any Kodak dealer’s. Found small green sticky note inside case - likely from whoever that first accessioned the camera - which reads "Presented as birthday gift to donor's mom in 1931 circa(?)." Disposed of sticky note because looks like Betty wrote it. - this last note by Eric Holdijk

The lens board pulled out of the camera body for taking pictures, and collapsed to make the camera more compact when not in use. The focus and aperture were fixed, while the shutter had I and B settings.

History Of Use
This small, basic camera was one of a series of “Baby Brownie” cameras made by Kodak. It was made of Bakelite (an early form of hard, brittle plastic) with a flip-up frame viewfinder. The shutter was operated by the lever under the lens. It used 127 type film, and produced pictures that were 6x4 cm in size. The cameras were manufactured from 1934 to 1941 in the United States and from 1948 to 1952 in the UK.

History Of Use
The original German design of the Kodak Junior Six-16 sported a round end and straight struts, a Kodak Anastigmat 1:7.7 f=12cm lens and a leather case. It had two frame finders: the first, a folding finder incorporated into its housing, and another optical finder was placed near the shutter. It also sported a quick release bar at the front of the bed which released the self-erecting bed. The Junior 616 took 6 exposures of 2-1/2 x 4-1/4 images on a single roll of 616. The UK design was in production from 1933-1940. It was practically identical to the German built model, with a similar round end and straight struts, and a leather case - but this design had a simple Twindar Lens. The US-built design was in production from 1935-1937. It sported all of the features of its Continental cousins with the lens being a an octagonal ended, Kodak Anastigmat, a No 1 Kodex shutter and further differentiated from its cousins by the "N" style struts. The Series II lacks the ribbing on the body leather, but retains the dual viewfinders and "N"-style struts. Versions with round or octagonal shutters are known, including a focus model with a simple instant/time shutter.

History Of Use
The Six-16 Brownie was produced in the United States between 1933 and 1940. It had an art deco faceplate and a two position focus with an auxiliary lens. This camera was particularly interesting because of its unusual film size. After producing no new film sizes for 16 years, Kodak introduced two relatively short lived film sizes in 1932: the 620 and 616. The films were designed to replace earlier sizes, however the other sizes had become so well used around the world that they failed to ignite the photographic world and had all but disappeared by the beginning of the 1940s. The original price of the camera was $5.25.
