Premograph No. 2 by Kodak

The Premograph No. 2 Camera was manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company from 1908 to 1910. The improvement over the original Premograph was a with the addition of a focusing ability which would accommodate a wider range of work. Also a the shutter was improved to include speeds from 1/50 to 1 second. Designed to provide amateurs the advantages of reflecting construction at a low cost and with simplified features. The prime feature of the reflecting camera is that it permits the the operator to keep an image of the subject always in view, in the exact size and position which would be captured in the photo. It had a simple mechanism which allows a reflecting glass to be at a 45 degree angel for viewing. The exposure was captured by turning a key which would turning reflecting glass out of the line of sight and and at the same time operate the shutter. The premograph took twelve 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch exposures on a Premo film pack. The camera measures 4 1/2 x 5 5/8 x 6 5/8 inches and weighs 44 ounces. Originally priced at $10.00.
