2 stk af Kodaks legandariske Disc kameraer.
KODAK DISC 6000
This camera was once the nicer camera in the disc series. The nicest feature being the close up lens for portraits, which not only shifts an additional lens in front of the taking lens, but also slides a lens in front of the view finder for parallax correction. It also has a door which is used to protect the lens and buttons.
In an effort to capitalise further on the advances in film technology and the popularity of the quick-loading Instamatic cameras, Kodak introduced the Disc format in 1982, but the ultra-small 8x10mm negatives were never very successful in the hands of "Joe Public" and his family and Kodak stopped producing cameras in this format in 1990. According to one source, Kodak produced 8 million disc cameras during the first year of production. As a point of interest, most, if not all, Kodak Disc cameras were fitted with aspheric lenses, the mass production of which Kodak had developed.
Film for this format was withdrawn from production by Kodak in 1998, it is no longer manufactured by anyone.
Most, if not all, Kodak Disc cameras have a four-character "CAMEROSITY" date-code, usually on the inside of the film door, near the hinge.
KODAK DISC 4000
Developed in response to the popularity of other cartridge film formats like 110, used a disc with 15 8x10mm negatives arrayed in a circle.
Most all of the Disc cameras were fitted with a plastic aspheric lens that was protected by a sliding cover. Prints from the negatives were not very sharp, even with the aspheric lens design. This was mainly due to the negative size, which was slightly less than that of 110 size.
