In 1983 I started collecting old cameras and that year I visited the photographica collectors trade fair in Amersfoort (now in Houten) for the first time. There I bought (as far as I can remember) a No. 3 Folding Pocket Kodak from Ruud Hoff. Even in those days Ruud was one of the leading Kodak collectors. Since then I have bought many Kodaks from Ruud and visited him a couple of times in Amsterdam, once to get the No. 6 Folding Kodak I had bought from him. The collection I saw there was overwhelming, with every Kodak camera I had only seen in books or just read about. For many years I have regretted that Ruud had no website where his collection could be seen. Now this has changed! So if you want to see an unbelieveable collection of early, rare and/or beautiful Kodaks you click this link: www.ruudhoff.com.
