This entry refers to the early 20th-century roll-film format. Kodak re-used the designation 126 for its later plastic, drop-in 126 film cartridge, introduced 1963 for its Instamatic cameras.

126 roll film was introduced by Kodak in 1906 without a 1xx designation (which were not used until c.1913).
It was originally simply Number 4A Folding Kodak film, after the model it fitted (see No. 4A Folding Kodak). It was discontinued in March 1949.
