It was the first of the Kodak cameras, dating from 1888. As far as I know it was simply called the Kodak camera. It was a box camera loaded with enough roll film for 100 exposures. In the very early days one coudln't change the film oneself. One had to send the camera to the Kodak Company (in Rochester NY). The developed the flim, made prints, inserted new film for 100 shots and returned the whole lot to the sender. (The Kodak Brownie was introduced in 1900). Incidentally, the invention of roll film was essential for the development of motion pictures.

Exactly what its name says: It winds the film back into the cassette so you can take it out for processing.

George Eastman invented the roll-film camera, which he called "The Kodak" because the name was short, easy to pronounce, memorable and sounded like the click of a camera shutter. You had to send it to Rochester, New York, to have the 100 pictures on each roll developed--not the film, but the whole camera. They would take your camera apart, develop the film (which was really entertaining to do because it was paper-backed and the lab had to strip the emulsion from the paper backing so they could enlarge the pictures) and send your pictures, plus a freshly-reloaded camera, back to you...for the princely sum of one dollar.

No you cannot insert film into a digital camera. its digital, not film, it right in the name if your not sure, film only goes in film cameras like a pentax, promaster, kodak, olympus, and canon. _______________ Of course you can insert film in a digital camera, only thing is it won't actually do anything. If you're really keen to try then get a piece of film and cut it to about 1 cm² then stick it in the slot where you'd normally put the SD memory card. When you're done with that you could try putting gasoline in your toaster and seeing how much faster it works.
