Kodak No.3 Folding Pocket Camera Model F

Kodak No.3 Folding Pocket Camera Model F
This model has some nice features.

Fitted with the 'Combination Back' allows the user to remove the back or part of, and insert a focussing screen, which can then be replaced with a film plate holder.

The camera also has a Rising Front (the screw thread is just visible to the viewers left in the photo) which allows some correction to the problem of converging verticals.
There is also a spirit level sitting next to the viewing finder on top of the shutter housing.

The lens is a Cooke Anastigmat f 6.5 series lll A.
A Kenngott's improved Kolios shutter of 1907 is fitted. The earlier friction brake type, working on a leather disc, was replaced by a pneumatic delay cylinder, (just visible as a black tube across the top of the lens housing). The speeds were set on the dial to the left and the shutter was cocked by the lever opposite. The speeds are T, B, 1,2,4, seconds 1/10, 1/50, 1/100th and 1/300th.

Beautiful image of an old camera. I have a slightly younger model which belonged to my father. Love the book also...:-)

Thank you. Yes, the books, I'm pleased you like them. These date from around the 1750's. They're amazing really, you can open and read them by candle light, close them easily and start again anywhere you like within seconds. Try doing that that with a computer over 10 years old.
