1920s Kodak 2c Jr


As much as I love modern photography equipment in all its technological greatness, I still think it would be rather cool to carry about a camera with a bellows.

This sucker would have run you between $12 and $19. That’s $129 if you account for inflation which isn’t a bad deal.

  1. What a great looking camera!

    Reblogged this on Ujomin.

  3. This is a neat camera. I have one on display in my home along with a super 8 camera that was my grandmothers and some old home movie items from grandparents. These items are really intriguing!

  4. Like a lot of Rochesterians four generations of my family worked for Kodak. My great grandfather was an exec and my dad had a lot of dusty old cameras passed down from his dad. We had a brownie and a busted up (the bellows had torn) Kodak Jr. I used to love messing around with those babies, even if they were no longer functioning.

    Alas, Kodak has just announced it will stop making cameras. I know that that it was retreating from the camera production end of things for awhile, but for those old enough to remember when the average family used Kodak and had Kodak moments you can feel the page of history turning.

    • and how terribly sad is that? while i love the efficacy of the digital camera, I miss old-school film. digital snapshots look horrible, all dotty. I miss fiddling with the f-stop and all the other goodies i can o longer recall because my digital camera does it all for me. i think it might be time to dig out the old Yashica FX3 and buy some film.

      • Well, I’ll just say that there are still plenty of settings and knobs to fiddle with in a digicam. In fact, there are whole new ways to screw up things that weren’t even thought of in the film days. 🙂

    I soooooo want that camera!!! It is a beauty. Thanks for sharing lovely posts and for visiting my blog always! Cheers.

  7. My first husband carted a graphic 4×5 through the rockies before I met him. He took a few pictures with it when we together, unfortunately they were never printed that i know of. The camera was a thing a beauty and the process, like playing 45’s was part of the charm! Of course this from someone who not only still writes letters with my waterman fountain pen but has given up cartridges for refilling from an ink bottle, again the process is half the fun and a reminder to treasure the now.

    • True. There’s a something we lose then simplify a process and take all the art out of it. So I’m not about to go buy a fountain pen but I hear where you’re coming from. 🙂

  8. “just a trifle smaller”? Wow, that’s truth in advertising like we never see anymore!
