It was not the first American camera made for 35mm film, but it is the first American 35mm to sell in abundant quantities. Earlier American 35’s are much rarer. They were produced and sold in small numbers. This is the first Ansco camera to carry the Memo name. Later, Ansco and Agfa-Ansco used the Memo name on cameras with different designs. The Leica camera produced a full-frame 35mm image. The Ansco Memo is a half-frame 35mm camera. Given that these early 35mm still cameras were shooting cine film, with its fairly coarse grain, the Leica with its larger image size unquestionably produced a better quality photograph than the Ansco Memo.

However, this lovely old compact folder also came with an interesting bit of Kodak history, in the form of a page sales brochure titled ‘Wherever You Go Take A Kodak With You’. This Oz-printed Kodak brochure is unfortunately undated but clearly of far earlier heritage than the VPK , because one of the ads in it is for the original strut-type VPK ‘Soldier’s Camera’. In fact, there are several references to ‘soldiers’ throughout, which tend to suggest it was printed during WW1.
However, one maybe positive dating clue is an advert for the pneumatically-operated ‘Kodak Self Timer’, because it has the preamble that it’s a new item. I’ve done some Googling but haven’t been able to come up with anything specific, other than one mention of an example for sale being made in which goes along with my WW1 theory. So, can anybody come up with anything to confirm this, or maybe even suggest an earlier date bearing in mind we here in Oz tended to get stuff from America or Europe a year later thanks to the ‘Tyranny Of Distance’?

The whole reason I bought an original x was because it had the largest sensor I could find in a small camera. It had been a number of years since I had shot an APS crop frame sensor. I replaced that with a Nikon D3 full frame and then moved on to the Canon 5d2, also full frame.

Click Image to View Gallery Dating to the first quarter of the 19th century, circa this is a rare example of a large 5 draw mahogany barreled telescope, engraved ‘BANKS London’on the first draw. Intended for marine use, it has a mahogany barrel with five brass draw tubes, and still has its original green tint objective lens which has a visible diameter of 50mm. All lenses are free from any damage, and the image approximately 15x magnification is sharp, albeit with the distinctive green tint which was intended to reduce reflected glare from the sea.
Although a large telescope measuring 44″ mm when fully extended, 10″ closed, it is very manageable weighing only 0. Housed in a soft leather case, it’s in very good cosmetic condition all round, no splits or cracks in the mahogany barrel. The only points to note are some minor dings to the second brass draw tube, and the objective lens holder has a small dent around its rim, as does the eyepiece cup which is also missing the small pip on the internal dust slide.

These black variants are not common as most of them look like the two I have. A more common variant are in post war models from around in which the knobs were changed to a white plastic that has a tendency to yellow over time.
If you see a Kodak 35 with yellowish looking plastic knobs, you know it is a later model. I much more prefer the all metal knobs like both of mine have. A special Luminzed coating was also applied to all of the available lenses.
