In 1900, Eastman introduced the Brownie camera. It could be made inexpensively for 50 cents and sold for $1 (equivalent to around $25 in 2017). Its affordability made it very popular and made photography accessible to more people than ever before. Eastman’s company could not manufacture them fast enough for the growing market.
