Narrative
KODAK Milestones bookley, found in Camera file. Pg. 4-5. Dates to look at are 1885 & 1888 & 1890.
History Of Use
Kodak's first folding camera was introduced in 1890. It could produce 48 four by five-inch pictures. Advertisements for Kodak cameras now read: 'Seven styles and sizes.' The Kodak's founder was George Eastman. The name 'Kodak' was born in 1888. He wanted a short word that could be spelled and pronounced easily in any language. The Number One KODAK Camera was placed on the market in 1888. Loaded with enough EASTMAN American Film for 100 pictures, it sold for $25. The camera and exposed film were returned to Rochester to have the film developed, prints made, and the camera reloaded - all for $10. This was the beginning of the "complete system of photography." Widespread publicity appeared in national magazines, and Eastman coined a slogan for his new system: You press the button-we do the rest."

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.
