No 2C Pocket Kodak

Manufactured between 1925 and 1932 by Eastman Kodak Co. A folding camera for 2-7/8x4-7/8 inch negatives on A130 film. It is an autographic camera even though it didn’t indicate that in the name (see the metal stylus in it’s place on the front next to the shutter/lens). It had twin struts and a pull out bed. This example, in blue, has a “Single” lens set in a Kodex No. 1 T-B-25-50 shutter. It was only available in black.


This is one of the best examples I have in my collection. As you can see the camera is in almost perfect shape—even the leather cover is clean and shiny. The chrome is all bright. The bellows are clean and light tight. It has the autographic stylus and the short, fabric covered cable release. The viewfinder is functional and clear. I also have the box it came in and the original instruction manual. Just like George Eastman wanted me to buy it! Now, if only I wanted to get a roll of A130 film special made…
