Eastman Home Portrait
Outfit (No. 1?)
EKC Professional Catalog c.1911, p. 24-26
Date Introduced: - ; Years
Manufactured: c. 1911
focus via rack and pinion (two gear tracks on top of
base rails); double swing; reversing by removable back; three-piece
Materials: cherry body, cherry base,
red leather bellows;
Sizes Offered: 8x10
Notes: Eastman Kodak made
at least three versions of the Eastman Home Portrait, since there is a
Home Portrait No. 3. They also made two
versions of an F&S Home Portrait, based on Folmer & Schwing view camera designs.
This un-numbered one would presumably be Eastman Home Portrait No. 1 if
we were counting. The design of this camera is appears to be based on the
contemporaneously manufactured R.O.C. View
(Variation 4), from its distinctive tilt hardware, but even this
hardware, while similar, is shorter than its R.O.C. View counterparts.
