Box Camera

Vintage box cameras

One of the very first box cameras was produced by George Eastman (the founder of Kodak) in 1888. Box cameras are characterized by their box-like shape and their simple handling with relatively few options (fixed lens and often also fixed speeds and diaphragm).

Once full, you could send the camera back to the factory, where they would take the roll film out and develop the pictures. After that, the camera was sent back to the owner with a new film inside. With the Kodak no. 1, photography became accessible to the public and a new hobby started. Another very famous box camera type was the Agfa Clack.

This is our charming collection of retro boxcameras for collectors and decorators!
