Kodak Pocket A-1

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Pocket A1 and its variants do not have at all the usual form of the 110 Kodak. Impossible to know why the design office launched such a form. A1 was manufactured in Great Britain from 1978 to 1980, before to be famous “Brownie” until 1982. 
There was a promotional version named B1.
A1 exists in two variants; one with a yellow shutter release, the other with a metallized shutter release (as well as the circumference of the lens). These cameras were sold with an “ever ready” case, made of rigid plastic.They had only the 1/50 secondes, the lens being one 11/25 mm.
For the small history, this camera left at the same time as Canon….A1.
