This camera was produced from 1914-1927. It takes 116 film and originally cost $24.00.

There is a number 72682 behind the metal "Kodak" tab that serves as the cameras level (shown in pictures 1 and 2). I was unable to research the number, but if anyone knows where I can find more information on the camera, please let me know.

I noted that the font of the Eastman-Kodak Co. logo above the lense changed through the production of this camera. I was able to trace this logo to the initial production year of 1914.

The shutter is a Kodak Ball Bearing shutter and shows Shutter speeds of T - B - 25 - 50 and 100. Meniscus achromatic or Rapid Rectilinear lens.

enjoy and share your thoughts.

    I found one of these while cleaning out my Grandmother's house. It seems to be in good shape but for some reason I can not get the door open where the lense is. Is there a trick to getting it open?

    There is a tab that says "KODAK" on the front. There is a serial number underneath it. Pull that tab to open.

    I have a kodak A-1 . The door is closed on it and can't seem to get it open even when pulling on Kodak tab. Any tricks to it or is it just jammed?

    Depending on your model year, there are two tabs on the back on opposite sides. When pressed it will allow you to open it. Or there is a slide trigger on the end where the strap is (usually under the strap) that will allow access.

    I hope this helps.
