No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak w/ Taylor Taylor Hobson & Cooke Anastigmat Look
Vintage from the 1910s
Whenever I look at this wonderful old classic Kodak, I think "my lord how big were their pockets?". Offered here is a very nice Kodak No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak with a very uncommon Taylor, Taylor, Hobson & Cooke F6.3 Anastigmat lens mounted in a Compound shutter. This lens was the top of the line, most expensive option when the camera was being sold as new. The camera produced 3 1/4"X5 1/2" images on 122 rollfilm. This individual camera was made sometime after August 1912. The lens is in nice condition and the shutter is working. We think it would be a shame to do it, but the lens could very easily be removed and used on a more modern 4X5 camera for general photography, Tintyping, or wet plate work. The camera includes a vintage leather shoulder strap and original leather carrying case. Closed this camera measures 10"X5"X2" (imagine trying to stuff that in your pocket!). It would make a beautiful display item and would stand out in any collection. Why not add it to your collection today?
DIMENSIONS (fully opened): 11” x 8.5” x 4.75” (approx.)
WEIGHT: 39.65 oz

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!
Item arrived within a very good time,less then a week! Item matched the description perfectly, was packaged very well and even a handwritten thank you on the reciept of purchase which i thought was thoughtful and kind to take the time to do so, if in the future this place is selling something of the same manor and in the same price range and quality i was looking, I would defenitely choose them first! Absolutely 100% satisfied customer!!and i dont about others but speaking for someone who has ordered MANY items online and have dealt with plenty of HORRIBLE stores and just lies and recieving thi gs that in NOWAY shape or form was qhat was pictured and described, it was soooo nice getting exactly what i expected and deserved and in an amazing time and care..again just 100% satisfied,thank you again!!
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
