The Pocket Poco is a small folding bed plate camera for the quarter plate format 3¼ × 4¼ ". It was made by Rochester Camera and Supply Co. of Rochester, New York, between 1893 and 1905. In the advertisement on the right it was advertised as "the smallest complete camera ever constructed".
It has an f/8 Rapid Rectilinear lens made by Bausch and Lomb, and a pneumatically operated two-bladed shutter with 'I', 'T' and 'B' settings.
The body and bed are of mahogany, covered with leather. It has red bellows, and nickel-plated fittings. There is a brilliant finder on the front of the bed.
