A small number of daguerreotypes survive today, many of which are dotted with spots, streaks, and scratches, as seen in the images below. Severa, Dressed for the Photographer: Ordinary Americans and Fashion, 1840-1900, 1995 In 1851, Frederick Scott Archer developed the collodian process, which allowed unlimited positive prints to be produced from one negative glass plate image.
Prior to affordable point and shoot digital cameras, developers began to compete with the local Kodak developer via mail-away service.
Then came the local drug store offering CD with hard copy prints.
The first was the 1939 Type 147; the last folding Retinette, the Type 017 (1952-54) with an f/4.5 Schneider Xenar in a Prontor SV, is an excellent camera in its own right.
Later rigid-bodied Retinas and Retinettes are less attractive, and often less well specified.
On a computer with either MAC OS or WINDOWS OS, you can print pictures from KODAK EASYSHARE Software or any picture-editing or photo-management software.
