12 interesting photos taken with the first ever kodak camera

Travel back some 126 years and it's there you'll find world's first point and shoot camera.

It was created by by George Eastman the inventor who founded the Eastman Kodak Company. The worlds first handheld camera initially cost $25 which in today's climate is around $600 USD today - expensive, but not unreasonable.



Along with a price range aimed at the general population (and not just professional photographers) and the tidy slogan 'You Press the Button, we Do The Rest' Eastman's camera empowered everyday individuals to photograph their lives, friends, family and memories.

Here's 12 amateur photographs first taken using the Kodak No 1. (in truth it was the second camera Kodak had released, as the first was given the generic name of the business itself) that have been preserved by the National Media Museum. They aren't so different to the images we take using Instagram today, photographs of families, people at the beach and spending time with friends.

Whilst technology evolves (indeed Eastman's technology changed the world) some things always remain the same.

After all, we all love a good photo don't we?
