Smile! You're on an Antique Camera!


One hundred years ago, a camera like this might have made your picture. It's a studio camera made in 1908 by Eastman Kodak and is on display at the Old Depot Museum.

They were beautiful but they were certainly more difficult to handle and to operate (if that makes sense).

Great photo. I love old cameras. I am still amazed how they made those things work so well.

Ooh, a hundred years ago I was a baby.

Beautiful but a lot of work. If it came in digital then i might use one ;-)

That is beautiful, isn't it? We're so lucky to have digital now...I wonder what they'll be using one hundred years from now?

when I was a kid I was completely fascinated with 3 mechanical items-- 1. Old Cameras 2. Old Typewriters 3. Old wind-up Victrolas--

no wonder I ended up blogging --a photo blog and a blog with a lot of music related posts. I had not thought of the connection until i saw this post.

I love this shot. Makes me feel so humble when I take a picture with my automitac everything camera.
