Kodak Premoette No.1A c. 1909-c.1912


The Premoette camera was a continuation of Kodak’s "Premo" series—cameras designed for amateurs with adaptable plate, roll film, and film pack technology.  Premoettes were film pack cameras—just open the camera and drop in the pack. No need for a dark room! Film packs also allowed Kodak to develop smaller camera bodies than the bulky glass plate cameras.
