Black Sole Leather Carrying Case, with strap   1.50 Kodak Autotime Scale (Style A)   1.00 N. C. Film Cartridge, 12 exposures, 2½ × 4¼ (No. 116)   .50 Ditto, 6 exposures   .25 Kodak Portrait Attachment   .50


Nos. 3 and 4 Folding Pocket Kodaks

These cameras are made for two standard amateur size pictures and are similar in every essential respect excepting in the matter of size. The No. 3 makes 3¼ × 4¼ pictures—a favorite with many, and especially suitable for lantern slide making, as the slide can be printed by direct contact. The No. 4 makes 4 × 5 pictures and is preferred by many on account of the comparatively large size which it is possible to get of the objects in the composition.

Both cameras offer the usual Kodak simplicity, and the exceptional lens and shutter equipment which assures the user the maximum of efficiency in all work where an anastigmat equipment is not necessary. The illustration on the opposite page shows the No. 3.

The shutter is the Kodak Ball Bearing, in which is mounted an R. R. lens which must stand the most rigid test before it is passed by our inspectors. This lens works at f. 8, and as the leaves of the Kodak Ball Bearing shutter open in the shape of a star, the greatest possible amount of light is admitted at this opening—a fact which makes the instruments especially valuable for snap-shot work.

The cameras are equipped with rising and sliding front—a great convenience in architectural and many forms of landscape photography, and an automatic focusing lock is provided so that either can quickly be brought to focus at any-distance.

While these models, of course, are designed for the use of our roll films, either can be loaded with plates at any time by the addition of a simple plate adapter or combination back (supplied extra). This is interchangeable with the regular back, is provided with ground glass for focusing and takes double plate holders. (See similar back illustrated on page 20.)

Both cameras are handsomely finished throughout. Back and bed are of aluminum, metal parts are highly nickeled, and covering is of fine quality grain leather.

No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak

The best thought of our manufacturing organization has been put into presenting in this model a moderate priced camera for general amateur photography that is the embodiment of skill and painstaking care.

It has in fact come to be recognized as the standard in hand cameras, and every suitable improvement made, or new idea evolved in the years in which it has been on the market, has been incorporated in its construction.

Showing Combination Back with Focusing Screen

The 3A Folding Pocket Kodak was the first camera made for 3¼ × 5½ pictures—a size which has become the most popular of all amateur sizes. Its proportions are just right for post cards, it is unusually effective for landscapes and street scenes when used horizontally; while vertically, it is ideal for portraiture, whether full length or head and shoulders, when the camera is fitted with Kodak Portrait Attachment.

The camera is fitted with tested R. R. lens, the Kodak Ball Bearing shutter, and rising and sliding front. And it is so simple that a beginner can make good pictures with it from the start.

Like the No. 3, this model will accommodate plates as well as films by the simple addition of a combination back, which is interchangeable with the regular back. This may be secured from any dealer, it is fitted with ground glass and takes double plate holders.

This camera is covered with best quality of fine grain leather, and has nickeled fittings.
