The use of photographic film was pioneered by George Eastman, who started manufacturing paper film in 1885, before switching to celluloid in 1889. His first camera, which he called the Kodak, was offered for sale in 1888. It was a very simple and relatively low-priced box camera aimed at the average consumer. The Kodak came with enough film for a hundred exposures and needed to be sent back to the factory for processing when the roll was finished.
