Star Premo Camera

The Star Premo Camera was manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company from approximately 1903 to 1908. Designed Designed as an all around high grade compact camera with many features including, a metal brilliant finder with hood that was placed on top of the standard so that when the rising and falling front was employed the finder would always be correctly aligned. Later models have the view finder placed on the bed. Additional features included rack and pinion, rising and falling front, automatic locking bed clamp, and reversible back. The front bed and focusing panel are constructed of aluminum to reduce weight and eliminate warping, the covering is of the best quality leather, and hardware with nickel finish. This camera was available in two sizes, either a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches or a 4 x 5 inch size. When closed the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch size measured 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches and weighs 33 oz and the 4 x 5 measured 2 1/2 x 6 x 6inches. It was fitted with a Planatograph lens working at f8, and the shutter was an improved Bausch & Lomb automatic shutter with iris diaphragm. Originally priced at $25.00 for either size.
