First KODAK camera
Eastman’s Kodak camera went on the market with the slogan ‘You press the button, we do the rest’. It was a very simple box shape with a fixed-focus lens and single shutter speed. This meant that anyone could take photographs and leave the complicated development process to somebody else, making photography a lot more accessible.
‘Kodak’ has no meaning behind it. Eastman said the letter K seemed “a strong incisive sort of letter”
