Kodak 1881: Sized for the Pocket, Inspired by the Locket, Made by Picket

Kodak 1881 Locket Camera

The Kodak 1881 could look like an oversized locket when worn around the neck, but it is a pocket-sized digital camera. Designer Lindsey Picket is actually paying homage to heritage and heirloom objects when she thought of creating the 1881.

The model number 1881, which, when rotated or even inverted would remain the same, can also signify a year in the Victorian age when lockets were all the rage. Photography was new then, and precious pictures were locked inside.

“Inspired by the emotional connection and careful framing of locket photos, 1881 strives to create a more precious medium through which to share your memories, whether at home or on the street,” says Lindsey.

Just like the lockets of old, you can look at your favorite photos every time you open the Kodak 1881. You can capture photos by simply aiming and tapping the camera. To create a more precise photo composition, you open 1881 and use the LCD viewfinder.
