Eastman Kodak made two wooden-bodied jumelle cameras in about 1896. These were apparently exported to England and France.[1] The wooden body has a shallow box-section at the back, and a front section which tapers in both dimensions toward the front board. Other than this shape, they are essentially simple box cameras for roll film. McKeown lists two models: he states that 1000 of the No. 1 camera and 500 of the No. 2 appear to have been made.

  • No. 1 Cone Pocket Kodak; the smaller of the two, though the actual size is not clear.[2]
  • No. 2 Cone Kodak, taking 2¼x3¼-inch exposures on size 105 roll film.[1]

  2. No. 1 Cone Pocket Kodak sold at the 24th Westlicht Photographica Auction, on 23 November 2013. The camera is covered in brown leatherette; it seems to have a simple 'I' and 'B' shutter, and a folding Newton finder with a front targeting aid.
