The Duaflex III iHorn is made from a Kodak Duaflex III box camera with a flash as the horn. The Duaflex III was made between 1954-1957.
The Eastman Kodak Company was founded in 1888. During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. As late as 1976, Kodak commanded 90% of film sales and 85% of camera sales in the U.S. Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s, as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in transitioning to digital photography. In January 2012, Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Kodak emerged from the bankruptcy, smaller but more in tune with current technology and continues as a successful enterprise today. The Duaflex camera line started in 1947 through 1960. The Duaflex were designed as a cheap, lightweight, easily to operate twin lens cameras made of bakelite plastic.
The Duaflex III iHorn is an iHorn of historic import. It put the power of capturing the moment in the common man’s hands. As advertised by Kodak, “Everyone is `good’ with this new reflex camera.” Now it is clear, life is “good” with The Duaflex III iHorn. Point, Click, Shoot, Listen.
