Kodak Advantix T700 Camera

Description:

The Kodak Advantix T700 camera is an example of the company’s Advanced Photo System compact automatic camera introduced in the 1990s and intended primarily for amateur photographers. Film for the camera was factory-loaded in a cassette for easy drop-in loading. Users could select from three film sizes before pressing the shutter to produce images in 4 x 6”, 4 x 7”, or 4 x 11” panoramic format. Once processed for printing, the negative film was returned to the cassette and an index print of all images made for the owner’s future reference in making copy prints.

From its invention in 1839, the camera has evolved to fit many needs, from aerial to underwater photography and everything in between. Cameras allow both amateur and professional photographers to capture the world around us. The Smithsonian’s historic camera collection includes rare and unique examples of equipment, and popular models, related to the history of the science, technology, and art of photography.
