Classic Cameras Puzzle Collectible Tin
After George Eastman invented Kodak film and the Kodak camera in the 1880s, amateur photography became widely popular and cameras became numerous and varied. Today, collectors typically acquire vintage cameras for their unique designs rather than the quality of photos. Art Deco style, colorful plastics, advertising, brand name, and other factors attract collectors to vintage cameras. Vintage cameras were made in several types, including box, accordion, single lens, double lens, 35mm lens, and instant cameras. Collectors of antique cameras search for the early wooden-box cameras used by professional photographers. Other collectors prefer the variety of personal cameras manufactured for the public. Vintage 35mm cameras are especially collectible and some of the most valuable cameras are 35mm. Collectors may also have interest in vintage instant cameras, especially the original 1948 Polaroid Land Camera.
