Eastman Kodak's first postcard format camera, the 3A Folding Pocket Kodak was
introduced in 1903 and sold until 1915. It was a folding bed camera for making exposures in 3ΌΧ5½ inch postcard format on type No. 122 rollfilm. I know that this camera belonged to my grandfather and that I still have pictures that were taken by it. It still appears to be in good shape, the bellows appear to be intact, it opens and closes well. It still fires and adjusts
easily. There are some some green flecks on left side of bellows. I don't know what it is, I was hesitant to try and clean it off - it did not wipe away nor smear. The camera has no case and the carry strap is missing and one of the strap hinges has been replaced. I have no idea if it will still take a picture, but as a display piece it would be great. It is 9 1/4" (23.5 cm) in
length opened, 4 1/4" (10.8 cm) wide, 1 3/4" (4.4 cm) deep, and weighs 39.3 oz (1114 gr).
