The 3A Folding Pocket Kodak, Eastman Kodak's first postcard format camera, was introduced in 1903.  Kodak produced seven models of the 3A   The models were known as B, B-2, B-3, B-4, B-5, C and G. This is a folding bed camera for making exposures in 3¼×5½ inch postcard format on type No. 122 roll film.

Early variants were expensive and had  a combination of Kodak Automatic shutter and Rapid Rectilinear lens from Bausch & Lomb. Later moderately priced variants got the Ball Bearing Shutter. Both shutters could be used with pneumatic remote operation or release by lever. A glass plate adapter was available for the camera.
