The Kodak Disc 3000, 4000, 6000 and 8000 were manufactured between 1982 and 1984 and retailed for between $57 and $143. They have the unique distinction of being the only cameras at the time that Kodak manufactured for use with the HR Discs instead of film. The Disc system was almost entirely automated, making the loading of film and picture-taking itself much simpler for the consumer. Even the battery was not user-serviceable; the 3v lithium battery had to be replaced by Kodak but did last for an extremely long time. The lens consisted of 4 glass elements with a focal length of 12.5mm at f/2.8, offering a 58° angle of view. The shutter speeds are 1/200 sec f/6 in daylight and 1/100 sec f/2.8 with flash. Other features are automatic film advance, sliding close-up lens, automatic exposure, built in flash, built in 3V Lithium battery, permanent front cover attached, and it came with a handy carry strap.
Kodak disc cameras, manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, New York, USA, were introduced by in the USA in June 1982 with the Disc 4000, 6000 and 8000 models. At the same time an international model, the Kodak Disc 2000, was introduced but this was not available in the USA. All four models reached the UK market in September 1982. Consumers failed to take to them in the way Kodak had hoped. Images were often described as “acceptable” but never exceptional. With sales falling, Kodak ceased camera production in 1988, and film production in 1998. Over the years of production Kodak made the disc 2000, 3000, 4000, 6000, 8000, 3500, 3100, 4100, 6100, 3600, and Hawkeye disc 7000, Medalist I, II, and Tele. Also the Kodak Tele disc, Kodak Challenger, Tele Challenger, and Kodak 460, 470 – both premium models.
