1909 Kodak No. 1A Pocket Model D Folding Vintage Camera
Vintage from the 1900s
Materials: Metal, glass, leather
True Kodak collectors will love this uncommon folding pocket camera with red bellows! This beautiful antique will make for an eye-catching piece of decor for a shelf, mantel, or your desk!
HISTORY & FEATURES: This rarely found Eastman Kodak No.1A Folding Pocket Kodak Model D was made around 1909. It was the camera that introduced the No. 116 roll film size and it evolved through models A, B, C, and finally this version, the D.
The first model (1899-1905) had pull-out front and struts, subsequent models had a fold-out domed bed and sprung struts. Early models had two finders, while later models like this one have a single finder that could be rotated for horizontal pictures. This Model D version, produced 1909-1915, is a larger version of the earlier and successful No. 1 Folding Pocket Kodak and takes photos of 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch.
CONDITION: This camera’s leather is fading and peeling a bit due to it being over 100 years old. The red bellows look in tact and didn’t show light leaks with a flash light, but due to age I cannot guarantee it is light tight. The aperture and shutter are in proper working order. Camera functionality and shutter speeds have been tested to the best of our ability as we do not have the film for testing. This item has been FULLY TESTED, but is not guaranteed to work due to its age and fragility.
DIMENSIONS: 8” x 4” x 2” (folded); 8” x 4” x 6” (unfolded)

This little camera is amazing! Mom had a vintage Ansco box camera and my small collection began with hers. Seller packaged with camera in its pristine leather case along with its flash outfit as well as original booklet, all bubble wrapped within its leatherette original sales case which was, too, packaged in bubble wrap and in exactly the right sized shipping box so it could not move! The camera itself is unique as described and as I researched a rare find and is of a great material and color! It is unique and a great addition to my collection! I am thrilled to have it now!
I was disappointed after receiving this item b/c there were some dust smears visible through the viewfinder. This is the camera I used to learn photography. It was Nikon's beginner's SLR sold '82-'86. I tested this with 6 different film types noting the camera functioned well and smudging did not impact the images. my old one went out. I used it pretty heavy 2 years. Sparingly after. Stopped taking a battery charge. This is not the Nikon that lasts a lifetime and does not approach the quality of intermediate Nikons at the time and was priced about $150 in '84. Good: it is very light & compact. Has programmed, AP & manual modes. I bought this to replace an old gift. Bad: It is full of plastic parts and potential problems that won't be worth fixing. It's a learner and is good for that but don't expect years of continual use.
Had an issue when I received this camera. I promptly contacted Jeff and we made plans to exchange. He honors his exchange policy and I am so happy for it. I have since sent over 100 shots through the camera and it has worked flawlessly. Very happy, thank you
