Kodak No.3 Folding Pocket Kodak, Model C-3

Within the popular Folding Pocket Kodak line of cameras, the #3 probably came with the most numerous model designations and manufacturing variations. The camera in the illustration is just a representative sample of a later red bellows version of the #3 with a particularly handsome B&L Automatic shutter. These cameras took 3x4 negatives on type 118 roll film. The 3x4 photograph was the same size as the traditional 'lantern slide' plate that had already been popular for several decades when these cameras were introduced in 1900.
