#Vintage Camera Collecting - Focus on Kodak

 
In September 1888, New York-based Eastman registered the made-up brand name "Kodak" and offered the first branded camera, a handheld box-shaped model sold with the promise, "You press the button - we do the rest."

In 1900 the Kodak "BROWNIE" was introduced. This cardboard camera sold for $1, with film at 15 cents a roll.  - The BROWNIE is credited with the democratization of photography -- bringing the medium into the financial reach of everyone. - Kodak continued to produce BROWNIES until the late 1960s, selling millions of models across the globe.
