The No 3 dates from 1900 and introduced the 118 film size. It went through a number of model changes until replaced by the Autographic model in 1914 which itself continued until 1925.

The E2 introduced new style back catches which prevented the back being put on upside down. Pre-set focusing positions were provided on later models.

The model F was introduced in 1909 and remained in production for two years. The price was $17.50.
