A historic stock of the Eastman Kodak Company.
Size: 30x21 cm.
The Eastman Kodak Company, known simply as Kodak, is a US technology multinational company specialising in the production of films and imaging and printing equipments. Long known in the past for the production of photographic films, in recent years they have focused in digital photography, medical imaging and products for printing.
‘You press the button, we do the rest’ was the slogan with which George Eastman, founder of Kodak, promoted the first camera intended to be used even by non-professionals in 1888.
Since then, the Eastman Kodak Company has charted the way to make photography simpler, more useful and more enjoyable.
Eastman himself explains the origin of this name: ‘I called it “Kodak” because it was a short, vigorous, easy-to-pronounce name and, to satisfy the trademark laws, it meant nothing’.
In 1963, he invented the film 126 Instamatic. A 35mm film closed in an asymmetric cartridge that you just had to place in the back of the camera, thus avoiding the difficult task of loading the classic film.
In the 1970s, Kodak began producing self-developing films called Kodak Instant. Unlike Polaroids, they were rectangular and the image on the surface measured 9 x 6.8 cm. After losing a patent battle with the Polaroid Corporation, Kodak left the Instant Camera business on 9th January 1986.
