Another junk sale photographic relic for you today.
The Kodak Disc 4000 is a point and shoot camera produced for Kodak’s own disc film in 1982.
It has a fixfocus 12.5mm 2.8 lens and a built in flash.
It still works too, though even if you managed to find some disc film it would be 20 years out of date and I doubt any lab on earth would process it for you.
The disc film cartridge format was quite innovative, but the quality of the prints it produced was so poor it was discontinued before the end of the 1980s.
I quite like the design of this camera, it is very slim and the brushed metal finish is lovely. The shape and design is not that much different to some modern digital point and shoot cameras.
I paid £2 for this relic, with its original case and receipt!
The receipt says it was originally purchased in Portugal in the the summer of 1986, I guess as a holiday camera.
The original owner paid 12,600 Portuguese Escudo for it, about £50 in British money, which, in 1986 was quite a lot. A mid-range point and shoot camera these days would cost around £150-200.
