Pocket Premo Camera (early version)

The Pocket Premo Camera was manufactured for a short time by the Eastman Kodak Company from approximately 1906 to 1907. It was essentially the same as the Star Premo camera. It would be later introduced with an improved self erecting bed. The bed and back are constructed of aluminum to reduce weight and eliminate warping, mahogany wood is used for the body, it is covered in seal grain leather with hardware finished in nickel, and has a maroon bellows. This camera took exposures 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches in size. It measured 2 1/8 x 3 7/8 x 5 1/4 inches and weighs 27 ozs. The brilliant finder was placed on top of the standard so that when the rising and falling front was emplyed the finder would always be correctly aligned. It was fitted with a Planatograph lens f8, and an auto shutter with speeds from 1/100 of a second. Originally priced at $20.00.
