Kodak Improved No. 4 Folding Camera

datasheet_loginManufacture: Eastman Kodak Company
Location: Rochester, New York
Model: Improved No. 4 Folding Camera

Production Dates: 1890 - 1897
Film: Glass Plates or Roll Film

Description: For rectanglular pictures, 4 x 5; capacity 100 exposures without reloading. This is the most complete folding camera ever devised and combines all the desirable features of a complete view camera with the compactness of a Kodak. It is self-contained
when closed and can be used for either hand or tripod work.

It is fitted with the Bausch & Lomb Iris Diaphragm Shutter, which is furnished with pneumatic release, including rubber tube and bulb, without additional charge. The range of automatic exposure is from T, -O- of a second to three seconds. Hand exposures are made by pressing the bulb to open and again pressing to close the shutter. The diaphragm is regulated by simply turning a dial. The shutter can be used with or without bulb.

The Lens is longer focus than formerly and covers the plate fully, even when the front is raised; it is instantly removable and can be replaced by a wide angle lens, the cells of which fit into the same shutter. A convenient pocket is provided within the box for
carrying extra lenses.

A Double Swing Back and sliding front are among the other improvements. 'l'hese Kodaks can be focused either with the index or on the ground glass. The roll holder has a dark slide and is interchangeable with our plate holders. A hinge in the bed allows the front
to drop when the wide angle lens is in use.

Reference for: 1894
