Rolled Film Camera

They see me rollin' they filmin'

In 1881 a farmer by the name of Peter Houston created the first rolled film camera. His brother, David Houston, filled out the patents. Peter licensed the patents to George Eastman. Peter did this because it was use in Eastman's box camera. Peter eventually sold his patent to Eastman for $5,000.
