  • Vintage ~ c1920 ~ "Kodak" "Panoram No.1" Camera #1

    This unusual "Kodak" "No. 1 Panoram" camera is in "as found" condition and has not been restored or repaired. The body of the camera is leather covered wood, I can't find any major splits or damage, however, it does have the usual scuffs, scratches and loss of finish you would expect from a well used item of this age. The nickel plated fittings have retained most of their original finish. The hinged door opens to show the lens which is attached to soft leather bellows, this moves in a 180 degree arc when the lever on top of the camera is moved and latched in to place, the lens release button does work but releasing the lens requires moving the lens with your finger at the same time. The serial number is "158". The impressed writing is clear and vivid to the removeable section.

Kodak Vintage Folding Camera

Created in the late 1800s, folding cameras continued to be popular right into the 1930s, with some manufacturers producing them well into the 70s. Kodak vintage folding cameras have always been a popular camera model for buyers.

These types of camera fold into a compact package for easy storage. The lens and shutter at the front are attached to a board which is connected to the body of the camera by folding bellows. The folding function works like an accordion - the expansion and compression of the camera is done through the intake and output of air.

Back at the time of their initial launch, the benefit of this type of camera was the good physical-size to film-size ratio offered by the folding capabilities of the camera. Today these cameras are more of a collector's item.

History of the folding camera

Vintage folding cameras were the first types of mainstream cameras - they came on the scene in the 1800s when the Eastman Company launched the first Kodak roll-film camera in 1888. Then, the following year the Kodak folding camera was launched with a built-in 48 exposure film roll. Then in 1900 Eastman had the funds to produce a Brownie roll-film camera for just £1, including a 6 exposure film. This vintage camera series was produced until 1970.

Types of vintage folding cameras

The Brownie Pliant Six-16 camera formed the foundation of the Brownie camera, with George Eastman's aim to make photography accessible to the masses. This was achieved because the lens was not as powerful and therefore not as expensive as other camera models. Although made in the United States, the camera was first launched in 1937 for the French market and is more commonly found in Europe.

Another camera made in 1939, the folding Hawk-Eye Six-20 Model C had a simple lens and used 620 roll film. This foldable camera model had a bright optical finder and a 1/100 shutter speed that allowed for an 'instant' setting.

The Folding Pocket Kodak launched in 1897, this is the oldest version of these popular Kodak vintage cameras - this sparked a long line of pocket folding cameras. At the time, it was deemed extremely portable, at 6 inches in length and 3.54 inches in height, it would fold down to only 1.57 inches. It also used new technology that its predecessors did not have - a spring that would stop the lense at precisely the right distance from the film, making it an obvious purchase choice at the time.
