Maker Eastman Kodak, Rochester NY

Maker Details From the company's founding by George Eastman in 1888, Kodak followed the razor and blades strategy of selling inexpensive cameras and making large margins from consumables, film, chemicals and paper. As late as 1976, Kodak commanded 90% of film sales and 85% of camera sales in the U.S. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastman_Kodak
