360° view of Kodak No.1 Pocket Kodak Junior Camera, see below for link to main page
360 degree rotating image Kodak No.1 Pocket Kodak Junior, photographed for a 360° view consisting of 36 images at 10° intervals.

This Kodak has been photographed open, showing one of the techniques used. Unclipping the catches under the lensbed allows the whole front of the camera to be withdrawn from the back, it was an efficient way at preventing light leaks, as there were only four straight relatively short seams to seal. The self errecting mechanism is apparent as are the damaged bellows. The number of pleats is high, in order to make use of the thin metal and space saving that would allow, the pleats had to be shallow. They are easily damaged if folded away hurriedly, and will never recover once the card stiffeners are creased. Fold the camera slowly to allow the air to escape, to avoid this.

Start the image spinning by putting your cursor over the "Spin" side of the image, you can pause the animation in any position by touching the "Pause" side.
