Most early Kodak advertisements were drawings showing the ease of using the handheld camera. “You press the button, we do the rest” was a company slogan for many years. This small, easy-to-operate camera allowed amateurs to begin to take photographs and document their lives. The camera became so successful that in 1892, George Eastman changed his company’s name to Eastman Kodak Company.
